Rangers might not have any representatives in the Scotland Senior squad this week, but the club is being well represented at youth international level.
On Wednesday afternoon, five Rangers academy players started for Scotland U19s in a win over Turkey.
One of them, Zak Rudden, scored the opening goal.

Later that evening, two more youngsters donned their country’s colours.

Kai Kennedy and Ciaran Dickson, started for the Under 17s, in a Uefa Elite Round fixture in Paisley.
Both players were members of the victorious Alkass Cup winning team.


Kennedy even won player of the tournament in Qatar, after putting in several outstanding displays.
Unfortunately, the result didn’t go to plan.
Two goals from the visitors in the first period, proved too great a deficit to claw back.
The fixture finished 2-0 in what isn’t an ideal start for the hosts.


However, there are two opportunities to bounce back.
They face Poland at Firhill on Tuesday, but before that, Russia are in the firing line at Paisley on Saturday.
The weekend fixture is a 4pm kick-off, and entrance is free.
Let’s hope both Kennedy and Dickson get a couple more opportunities to impress, in those games.
