Rangers manager Mark Warburton was impressed with Barrie McKay’s performance for the Gers against Greenock Morton in the Scottish Championship.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told the club’s official website that Barrie McKay is an outstanding player.

McKay is just 21 years of age and plays as a winger, and has done well for Rangers so far this season.

The Scotland Under-21 international featured for the Gers again on Monday evening, as he started the Scottish Championship game against Greenock Morton away from home.

The youngster played for the entire 90 minutes at Cappielow Park and scored, as the Glasgow giants won 2-0.

Warburton was impressed with McKay’s performance against Morton and told Rangers’ official website: “We talk about players having flexibility in their positions, and Barrie has been outstanding for us in that respect.

“He wasn’t getting so much joy tonight on the left flank – just the occasional switched ball to him but not as many as we would have liked, and the idea was move him inside and we are delighted with his contribution.”

Over the course of the 90 minutes at Cappielow Park, visitors Rangers had 61% of the possession, took 20 shots of which just seven were on target, and earned six corners.

Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment with 53 points from 21 matches, five points clear of second-placed Hibernian.

The Gers will return to league action on Saturday afternoon when they take on Falkirk at Ibrox in Glasgow.
