Rangers starlet Zak Rudden took his goal tally into double figures over the weekend to add to his burgeoning reputation.
On Friday night, Rudden scored an equaliser for Scottish Championship side Falkirk in their 1-1 draw away at Morton.
That was Rudden’s 10th goal of the season in just 21 matches since his summer loan switch to Falkirk.
And he has been the bright spark for relegation-threatened Falkirk, who sit 8th in the table – one point off bottom.
Without Rudden’s goals, Falkirk could be dead and buried right now and he is proving he can thrive despite playing in an under-performing team and despite his young age.
The 19-year-old always impressed for Rangers when he played games for the academy sides at various age group levels.
But now he is proving he can mix with the senior players and still hold his own, making him an exciting prospect for the near future.
The Scotland youth international was used by Steven Gerrard in pre-season and his goal scoring record will have caught the attention of the Gers manager.
Rangers have several talented youngsters and Rudden has to be included among them.
With the long-term future of Rangers’ striker options looking uncertain, Rudden is staking a claim to be their front man for years to come.
