Rangers youngster Josh McPake hit a stunning winner for the Scotland U19s as they impressively defeated their German equivalents.

The result also fired the U19s to the top of their European Championship qualifying group, above Germany and unbeaten on seven points.

McPake, who at 18 is one of the highest-rated talents at Ibrox, showed his class by rolling the ball past the German defender and firing it past the goalkeeper.

It continues the exciting list of achievements of McPake over the course of the last year or so.


The youngster won the Rangers Academy Player of the Year last season, picked up the player of the tournament award at an U17s tournament in Lille and was involved in a hugely successful Rangers youth set-up last season which picked up four trophies.

McPake has also made his first-team debut for Rangers – against St. Joseph’s of Gibraltar in UEFA Europa League qualifying.


McPake is currently on-loan at Dundee where he is looking to gain that essential first-team experience which will help him break into the Ibrox matchday squad.

McPake wasn’t the only Rangers player involved in the impressive victory last night either.

Dapo Mebude, Kai Kennedy, James Maxwell and Ciaran Dickson made up the rest of the Rangers contingent.
