The Lowdown: Barely seen
Lowry has only made eight senior appearances for the Gers over the last two seasons, and only one so far this term (Transfermarkt).
The 19-year-old has impressed for the ‘B’ side, scoring eight goals and making two assists in 14 games in total over all competitions (Transfermarkt), and has certainly earned more opportunities to impress in the first team.
It sounds like he will be given another chance on Thursday evening, as Beale looks to introduce some youthful exuberance into his first-team ranks.
The Latest: ‘Very close’ to making squad
Speaking to the media on Wednesday afternoon in his pre-game press conference ahead of their match at home to Hibernian, Michael Beale has confirmed that Lowry is ‘very close to being in the squad’, and could make a ‘breakthrough’ under the new manager:
“Lowry is right there at the stage to make a breakthrough, he will be very close to being in the squad tomorrow and it is important he keeps working hard to push the senior players.”
The Verdict: Exciting
It is certainly exciting to hear that Beale is keeping a close eye on Lowry, and that the attacking midfielder could be given more chances in the first team to impress under him.
When he has been given an opportunity, he has received rave reviews for his performances, and clearly has a bright future at the club.
The Light Blues need to try and find a way to claw the gap to bitter rivals Celtic in the SPFL table, and Lowry is hopefully a player they can unleash in the second part of the campaign, which could end up working in their favour.
