Nicky Law: These youngsters have changed the way we play under McCall

Rangers midfielder Nicky Law has been impressed with the club's young players.

Rangers midfielder Nicky Law has told the Glasgow Evening Times that the club's youngsters have been 'brilliant' in recent appearances.

Law, 27, scored a dramatic equaliser for Rangers last weekend as they stumbled to a 2-2 draw against Falkirk at Ibrox, taking his tally for the season to 13 goals for the club.

Reunited with his former Bradford City and Motherwell boss Stuart McCall, Law is a key player under the new Rangers manager, who has gone some way to turning things around at Rangers.

After dismal results under Ally McCoist and Kenny McDowall, McCall has lost just once as Rangers manager, with just one defeat in ten games.

The most pleasing aspect of McCall's management so far has been his willingness to play the club's young players in recent weeks.

Academy graduates Robbie Crawford, Andy Murdoch, Tom Walsh and Ryan Hardie have all featured recently, with forward Hardie scoring twice in a 3-1 win over Dumbarton earlier this month.

Fans are keen to see young players come through at Ibrox rather than relying on the old guard of Lee McCulloch, Kris Boyd and Kenny Miller, so the introduction of Crawford, Murdoch, Walsh and Hardie has been met with positivity from supporters.

Ahead of this weekend's game against league champions Hearts, midfielder Law has told the Glasgow Evening Times that the youngsters have revitalised Rangers thanks to their pace and energy.

"We have had some pressure games in recent weeks and they have showed no fear. In fact, they have come in and given everyone a lift. The young lads have been brilliant in the games they have been involved in and have really brought something to the team," said Law.

"We had been struggling a bit and had been a bit flat and I think their presence has given us all a lift and brought energy and pace to our play," he added.

With more pace and energy in the side thanks to these youngsters, Rangers are different side under McCall, whilst the introduction of Newcastle loanee Haris Vuckic will make them a difficult team to face in the play-offs.
