Rangers loanee sent off after 'smashing into' opponent in league defeat

Rangers loanee Jack Thomson was sent off for two bookable offences as Queen’s Park lost 1-0 to Airdrieonians in League One.

Thomson joined the Spiders on loan in July after a stint at partner club Orange County SC had been ended early.

Manager, Laurie Ellis, was delighted to bring him in as he’s a talented young midfielder who already had experience of the league, having spent time on loan at Clyde during the second half of last season.

In general, it’s been a successful spell.

The 21-year-old has featured in 16 of his adopted side’s 18 league matches, scoring one goal and earning praise for his overall play.

Wednesday night’s trip to Airdrie didn’t go to plan, though.

The Spiders’ promotion hopes were dented by a 1-0 defeat and Thomson was sent for an early bath.

Kerr McInroy scored the winner for the hosts in the 71st minute and the Gers loanee was sent off nine minutes later for a second bookable offence after ‘smashing into’ Scott Agnew.

It could prove to be Thomson’s final appearance for the club, as a one-match suspension now awaits and his loan deal is due to end on 1st January anyway, one day before their next fixture against Clyde.

If it is the end for the youngster at his third loan club, it’s a disappointing way to bow out, but overall it’s been a positive stint.

Meanwhile, a popular ex-Rangers star captained a European club in a cup rout on Wednesday.
