Rangers teenager Ryan Hardie reacts to 'dream come true' after victory over Dumbarton

Rangers Gates

Rangers youngster Ryan Hardie scored twice against Dumbarton.

Rangers teenager Ryan Hardie has told Sky Sports that his performance in the 3-1 against Dumbarton was a 'dream come true'.

Rangers made it five wins under Stuart McCall with a comfortable victory over Dumbarton, though they had to come through an early scare.

Mark Wilson gave Dumbarton the lead inside two minutes, but a brace from Hardie and a strike from Haris Vuckic handed Rangers the win.

That leaves them four points clear of third placed Hibernian, as Rangers begin to tighten their grip on second place in the Scottish Championship.

McCall continues to put his faith in Rangers' emerging young players, with Andy Murdoch, Tom Walsh and of course Hardie starting the game.

Hardie starred with his two goals, and could now emerge as a key player for Rangers in the run-in to the end of the season.

The 18-year-old forward spoke to Sky Sports after the game, and admitted that starting the game was a 'dream come true' - and it's hard to imagine his full debut going any better.

"It's a dream come true to get my first start for Rangers and score two goals,” Hardie said. "Being told I was starting was the best feeling in the world. I was confident I could do well and help the team through to a win."
