Rangers striker Andrew Dallas open to Ibrox loan exit

The young Rangers striker has yet to feature under Steven Gerrard at Ibrox.

The Rangers striker Andrew Dallas is open to a loan move as he attempts to catch Steven Gerrard's eye.

Dallas has scored 14 goals in just 12 games for Rangers youth and reserve sides this season, but has yet to follow teammates Stephen Kelly and Glenn Middleton into the first team plans at Ibrox.

 

And a temporary exit could be on the cards should manager Gerrard continue to overlook the teenage marksman.

Asked during a Q&A session on the Rangers Youth Development Co. official Twitter page about his goals for this season and next, Dallas replied: "Continue scoring goals for the reserves and maybe even go out on loan.

"Hopefully I can impress the manager in reserve games catching his eye and then earn a few mire first team training sessions where I have the chance to impress further."

A product of Rangers' academy system, Dallas already has some first-team experience under his belt, having played five times - and scored twice - for Stenhousemuir last season.

Many fans urged Gerrard to include the 19-year-old in last month's Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Aberdeen, with strikers Alfredo Morelos and Kyle Lafferty suspended.

Umar Sadiq ultimately got the nod, although his performance received widespread criticism.
