Rangers prospect says they dominated against St Mirren, despite loss

Rangers prospect Jordan Thompson felt his side were hard done by in the youth cup clash against St Mirren.

Rangers are out of the Scottish Youth Cup after a surprise defeat to St Mirren.

The young Gers were beaten 2-1, losing the fourth round clash which was played away from home.

The under-20 side were two down before a Ryan Hardie effort pulled a goal back, but it was too late to salvage a result.

Celtic have won the competition in five of the last six seasons, with Rangers themselves winning the 2014 trophy.

Midfielder Jordan Thompson, an addition from Manchester United's youth ranks in the summer, felt his side were hard done by, unable to make their possession count. 

St Mirren have never won the competition in it's 32 year history, although did reach the final in 2004/05, before being beaten 2-0 by Celtic.

Rangers reached the final last year in an attempt to retain the trophy won a year earlier, but lost 5-2 to Celtic at Hampden Park.

This year they have fallen well short, which will be a disappointment to first team boss Mark Warburton, who placed a big emphasis on youth development.
