Rangers send two youngsters out on loan

With the traffic jam currently in Rangers corps of forwards – with the likes of Kris Boyd, Kenny Miller, Nicky Clark, & soon Jon Daly all vying for playing time –  it was inevitable that the club would have to loan out some of its younger forwards in order to see first team action.

Calum Gallagher is a player that many fans are clamoring to see more of.  The 19-year old captured the imaginations of supporters in his bright & direct play last season – scoring one goal in the 142 minutes of action that he saw.  Early in the pre-season, he flashed that positive play again but soon took a back seat to the veterans who needed playing time to get fit for the new season.

On Saturday, it was confirmed that Gallagher will join fellow Championship side – Cowdenbeath on a short-term loan that will expire in January.  You would expect Gallagher to walk straight into the starting eleven for a club that is off to a dismal start to the season.  Currently last in the table, Cowdenbeath only have one point after four matches & have only scored four goals, while conceding ten.

Stranraer also announced that they are taking on a youngster from Ibrox, as Danny Stoney has joined the club on loan.  There was no mention of how long the loan is for.

Stoney has developed a reputation of being a real sniper as he has risen up Rangers’ youth ranks.

Stranraer has yet to win a match this season in League One, after finishing third last season.  They have two points in four matches & have only scored four goals, while conceding nine.

This sets up to be a fine opportunity for the young Stoney to see if he can transfer his goal scoring abilities at a more competitive & as we learned last year –  more physical level of football.


One thought on “Rangers send two youngsters out on loan

  1. Gallagher for me should be in the Rangers team. his workrate and agression is what we need perhaps on the right hand side of midfield. he has shown glimpes of good runs with the ball and willing to put a ball in the box and he seems a decent wee finisher. for me it was a wrong choice sending him out on loan
