Yesterday, Rangers faced Aberdeen in a repeat of Sunday’s Scottish League Cup semi-final. However, this time around it was a reserve match and The Gers ran out 3-0 winners thanks to two goals from Andrew Dallas and an own-goal, leading to fans calling for Dallas in the senior setup.
Reserves Full Time: Rangers run out 3-0 winners against Aberdeen. Two goals from Dallas and an own goal give the young gers all three points.

For most of the Bluenoses, the disappointment of Sunday’s result will still be something that they’re feeling and they’ll be desperate to get a big win tomorrow night against Kilmarnock to try and bounce back and get a win, and the fans would be keen to see young Dallas thrown in for that clash at Ibrox. At Hampden Park, the Gers had the joy of watching Umar Sadiq running around looking for a goal, and the fans would much rather that was Dallas.
Steven Gerrard is hardly thin on the ground when it comes to strikers. The former Liverpool and England captain has the prolific Alfredo Morelos and the imposing Kyle Lafferty at his disposal and whilst he obviously felt that changes were needed for Sunday, it would be a massive shock if neither of these two were to start tomorrow when they look to pick up all three points against 2nd-place Kilmarnock.

Well done. Young Dallas should have been given a chance last night.

The Gers would have loved Dallas to start on Sunday and they’ll still be keen to see him get some minutes in the coming months of the season.
