Jordan Thompson sends message on Twitter ahead of Rangers v Alloa

Rangers will take on Alloa Athletic at Ibrox in the Scottish Championship this afternoon.

Rangers youngster Jordan Thompson has taken to social networking site Twitter to express his excitement at the team returning to action this afternoon.

The Gers will be looking to return to winning ways when they take on Alloa Athletic at Ibrox in Glasgow in the Scottish Championship in a few hours’ time.

Midfielder Thompson, who is only 18 years of age and joined Rangers in the summer transfer window after leaving Premier League giants Manchester United at the end of the 2014-15 season, is looking forward to the match.

Today’s game against Alloa will be massive for Rangers, who suffered their first defeat in the Scottish Championship last weekend.

Mark Warburton’s side went down 2-1 to promotion rivals Hibernian away from home at Easter Road.

That defeat has left the Gers just five points above second-place Hibs at the top of the league table, with many suggesting that Rangers now face a serious challenge for the title.
