With little left to play for in the league, Glasgow Rangers should give two exciting youngsters their first starts.

Rangers headed into their Scottish Premiership clash against Aberdeen knowing there was still a slim chance of finishing in the top two.

Unfortunately for Pedro Caixinha's side, a 2-1 defeat means they will finish the campaign in third, with only the weekend clash against St Johnstone remaining.

Although it is a dead rubber, the Portuguese boss should still use the match to his advantage, seeing what two of the Gers' exciting youngsters can do when played from the start.

Jamie Barjonas came off the bench on Thursday evening, the third time he has done so in recent weeks, but Sunday offers the perfect chance for him to start, especially when you consider the lack of impact of Arsenal loanee Jon Toral in recent matches.

Similarly, fellow 18-year-old Serge Atakayi should be tested after being an unused substitute for the recent matches against Aberdeen and Partick Thistle.

Caixinha would be losing nothing by testing the pair and if they excel he could save himself a lot of money in the summer.

There are key areas of Rangers' side that definitely need strengthening, but some problems could be solved by fringe players just waiting for their chance.
