Rangers youngster Calum Gallagher highlights what Stuart McCall's regime has brought to club

Rangers FC

Gallagher is pleased with the changes Stuart McCall has made at Rangers.

Speaking to the Evening Times, 20-year-old Gallagher revealed what is different between McCall’s regime at Rangers and the previous running of the club.

The young striker said: “Since the new set-up has been implemented there has been a real shift in attitude and a real focus on intensity and work-rate - there has been a real togetherness that maybe wasn't there earlier in the year.”

Gallagher, who netted the only goal of the game as Rangers’ Under-20 side defeated their derby rivals Celtic on Monday, was given a chance to impress in the first-team at the weekend, as McCall used him as a substitute in the 3-1 victory over Dumbarton.

Gallagher will be looking to follow in the footsteps of another one of his young teammates at Ibrox, with Ryan Hardie netting twice in that victory on his full debut. Hardie was called upon due to an injury to Kenny Miller, and he took his chance in the first-team with great style.

Since McCall’s appointment, there appears to be a greater sense of motivation around the Gers, and the rise of Hardie seems to represent this. He took his chance, and deserves to keep it, and the sense that an 18-year-old could fire Rangers towards the Premiership is bringing hope that a new era is about to be ushered in at Ibrox.
