Rangers U18s played out a 3-3 draw with Aberdeen on Friday afternoon, with prolific young striker Rory Wilson scoring yet again.

The Young Gers came into the fixture in the Granite City in strong form after three consecutive wins, downing the Dons, Dundee United and Motherwell in recent weeks.

U18s coach Cameron Campbell was able to name a strong-looking starting XI, which featured two players who were recently called up for Scotland U17s duty: Greig Allen and Rory Wilson.

Allen has been influential since signing from Hearts in the summer and 15-year-old Wilson has been prolific in front of goal.

The youngster bagged hat-tricks against both Dundee and Partick Thistle earlier in the season and made his UEFA Youth League debut off the bench against Hammarby last month.


There were goals galore in the first half in Aberdeen, with the scores locked at 2-2 at the interval.

A strike from defender Jack Harkness and an OG from a Dons player had the Young Gers ahead twice but they were pegged back on both occasions.

It was almost inevitable that Wilson would find the net at some stage in the game and he did score in the second half.

It wouldn’t prove to be the winner, though, with the Dons also grabbing another goal, ensuring the points were shared.

The 3-3 draw was enough to keep the Young Gers above Aberdeen in third in the league table but missing out on the win ensures they are six points behind league leaders Dundee United with both teams having played eight matches [Rfcyouths.wordpress.com].
