The Glasgow Rangers youngster is yet to score for the senior side.
While some of Rangers' next generation have impressed with their early outings for the club, striker Ryan Hardie has failed to hit the same heights, with some Gers fans suggesting that he is simply not good enough for a successful career at Ibrox.
However, the 20-year-old has only been given the briefest of chances to impress, with his five league appearances totaling just 47 minutes.
Even the most experienced strikers need some time to settle into a game, and Hardie deserves a prolonged spell to show what he is capable of.
While the likes of Kenny Miller, Eduardo Herrera and Alfredo Morelos toil in front of goal, Hardie is almost invariably thrown on for the final few moments and then judged for looking out of sorts.
Only a handful of young forwards have managed to become an instant hero, with most needing time to settle and play their way into form.
Rangers' interim boss Graeme Murty looks like being in charge for a while yet and he should give Hardie more time in one of the upcoming matches against Aberdeen. Perhaps then Gers fans will begin to see a different player.
