Nicky Law hoping to play more often for Rangers

Nicky Law has only played 90 minutes for Rangers on two occasions in the Scottish Championship so far this season.

Rangers midfielder Nicky Law has informed the club's official website that Mark Warburton has told him he will be utilising all of the players in his squad this season.

Law started the season in the Light Blues' first-team, but most of his chances more recently have come as a substitute, with others jumping ahead of him in the pecking order.

However, after the 27-year-old made a big impact in Rangers' last match against Falkirk, he is hoping that he has done enough to force his way back into their starting line-up. 

He said: "In the early part of the season I played in most of the games, and then he spoke to me before the Queen of the South game to explain he would be using his squad.

“Unfortunately for me, after I came out we turned in two of our best performances of the season away to Queens and then at home to Raith Rovers.

“So it was difficult to get back in, although in the last few weeks we’ve maybe not been as good as we were in the early part of the season, so I certainly feel there are chances for me, and that’s why I felt it important when I got the chance to go on the park on Saturday to remind the manager what I can do, and I felt I did that."

Law came off the bench against Falkirk to create two late goals, which ensured Rangers picked up all three points.

That victory extended Warburton's winning run in the Scottish Championship to nine games, and meant that they have established a nine-point lead at the top of the table.

This good form means that competition for places in the squad is fierce, and Law has been one of the most unfortunate members of the team so far. 

The former Motherwell man has only made two 90 minutes appearances in the league this term, and he will be hoping to play a more prominent part when the side return to action after the international break.
