Rangers teenager Tom Walsh 'disappointed' not to have played against Queen of the South

Rangers FC

Tom Walsh was hoping to play for Rangers against Queen of the South.

Rangers winger Tom Walsh has told the club's official website that he was 'disappointed' to have been left on the bench against Queen of the South.

Rangers won the first leg of their play-off clash against Queen of the South on Saturday, with goals from Steven Smith and Dean Shiels handing Stuart McCall's men a 2-1 lead.

The two teams now meet in the second leg on Sunday, with Rangers heading back to Ibrox to try and seal the victory and set up a clash in the next round against Hibernian.

McCall has lost just once as Rangers boss so far, with fans praising him for his faith in the club's young players - but whilst midfielder Andy Murdoch started on Saturday, 18-year-old Walsh was left as an unused substitute in the 2-1 victory.

The teenager winger has emerged in the Rangers side under McCall, but was left on the sidelines against Queen of the South as McCall went with experience instead.

Now, Walsh has told the Rangers official website that he was disappointed to have been left out, but will accept McCall's decision - as long as the team continues to win!

"You're always disappointed when you don't play, but you can never really complain when the team gets a great result as that's the main thing," said Walsh. "It's always nice to get on but I can't and won't complain because we got the win that we wanted."

"We had a game plan for the match and I understood what that game plan was. I have no complaints about missing out and I'd love to be involved in the next one. That's always the aim," he added.
