Rangers teenager Zak Rudden gave fans a glimpse of the future with yet another goal during his loan spell.
Rudden has been on loan at Falkirk and he would have had mixed emotions at the weekend. The youngster’s whole spell at Falkirk was typified by their weekend fortunes.
Falkirk won their home match against already-crowned champion Ross County and Rudden scored the opening goal in the 3-2 victory.
But they were relying on other results. Alloa Athletic’s 1-1 draw with Ayr United was enough to see them finish above Falkirk.
For the first time since 1980, Falkirk will be playing in the third division in Scotland. But Rudden will not be around next season.
The 19-year-old scored his 12th goal of the season on the weekend to add to his burgeoning reputation. And he has options ahead of the summer.
Steven Gerrard is likely to run the rule over the Scotland youth international in pre-season. And then a decision needs to be made.
Rudden will either play a part in the first-team squad or be loaned out again. Perhaps a loan to a lower Scottish Premiership team would be the best move for Rudden’s career.
After hitting double figures in the Championship for relegated Falkirk and winning various awards, Rangers fans can get very excited about Rudden’s future.
