Despite Canada losing the deciding match of the four day Milk Cup youth tournament, Rangers defender Luca Gasparotto was named Player of the Tournament. Canada lost the final match of the tournament to Northern Ireland 1-0 after drawing China 1-1 & defeating the now infamous Mexico side 2-0.
Either way, it is a nice accomplishment for 19-year old Gasparotto who showed so much promise back in the 2012-13 season but failed to make a first team appearance last season. He did feature regularly for Rangers U20 side & made three appearances for Stirling Albion on a month long loan spell.
Despite the lack of first team action, he is expected to be a prominent player in Benito Floro’s Canadian national team picture going forward.
- What should Rangers do with Gasparotto this season?
