Former Rangers youth talent Andrew Dallas might never have made the first-team at Ibrox – but he’s certainly making his mark at English National League side Solihull Moors.
The 22-year-old striker came through the youth ranks at Ibrox and was signed by The Moors in the summer from League One Cambridge United.
And after a rocky start to life at the West Midlands club the striker has just netted five goals in a single game – following up from a perfect hattrick last weekend!
The potent forward now has eight goals in two games after firing a remarkable five goals past Dover in a 5-0 win in the fifth tier of the English football league system.
All five goals came in a remarkable 47 minutes that we’re sure ex-Rangers kid Andrew will never forget.
The impressive rout comes just seven days after Andrew Dallas netted a perfect hattrick and all three goals in a 3-0 win away to Southport in the FA Trophy.
Ex-Rangers youth Andrew Dallas settling into life at Solihull Moors
After a rocky start to life at Solihull – Dallas had netted only three goals in 23 games prior to these eight goals and hadn’t scored since mid-September – now Andrew appears to be finding his feet.
Whilst it might not have happened for the forward at Rangers his involvement in the club’s youth system will have bluenoses wishing the striker every success in the future.
Signing his first ever professional deal with Rangers in 2016, Andrew Dallas never played for the Gers and had two loan spells with Stenhousemuir and Greenock Morton whilst on the books at Ibrox.
Leaving for Cambridge United on an undisclosed fee in 2019 [BBC Sport], Dallas spent the second half of last season on loan at National League Weymouth where he netted 12 goals in 25 games.
The result leaves Solihull Moors in 9th place in the National League and Andrew Dallas will be hoping to inspire a promotion push in the latter half of the season.
Meanwhile, one international manager has handed Rangers an Old Firm boost as doubts continue around who will and won’t be available for the clash with Celtic.
