Kyle McAusland, Brechin City

Played the full 90 minutes in Brechin’s 1-1 cup tie with Annan Athletic.  McAusland has been slotted as a midfielder while on loan & he helped Brechin dominate the possession numbers – 57% to 43%.  It was McAusland’s free kick that assisted on Brechin’s only goal of the match, as he lofted the ball in to be met by Colin Hamilton.

Barrie McKay, Raith Rovers

McKay put in a star performance in Raith’s 2-0 victory over Stirling Albion.  Deployed out on the left flank, McKay was active from the outset & nearly scored in the opening minutes.  According to Rovers’ official match report – “The first-half was lit up by several quicksilver bursts from McKay down Raith’s left. T ime and again, Stirling full-back Hamilton was turned inside and out.  McKay was a regular source of inspiration on the left.”  McKay was finally rewarded right before half time, as he fired home the opening goal from 20 yards out.

McKay continued to flourish in the second half & manager Grant Murray sang his praises after the match.  Via Stirling’s official website, Murray proclaimed – “Barrie McKay was outstanding – he has great pace and I wouldn’t like to have played against him!”

“We are very grateful to Rangers for allowing us to have him on loan.”
