Rangers youngster Ryan Hardie has taken to Twitter to express his delight at marking his return to the starting lineup with a goal as his nightmare spell with injury appears to be behind him.
Livingston fans have had to wait patiently to see the Gers youngster feature in the starting XI following his return to the club on loan in the summer. He has been injured for much of the previous seven months, but made his return in midweek.
And the Rangers ace made his first start since April as Livi took on St Mirren, and he marked the occasion in dream style as he scored the home side's second goal in the 3-1 win.
The goal made the score 2-1 with just over 25 minutes remaining, and he was almost immediately substituted as he continues to work his way back towards full fitness.
Understandably, Hardie could not hide his excitement on social media after the full-time whistle as Livi moved themselves up to sixth in the Scottish Premiership, five points behind Steven Gerrard's men.
Hardie will right now probably just be looking to enjoy a lot more luck when it comes to his fitness over the coming months, but Rangers fans will be hoping to see plenty of goals from the striker before he returns to Ibrox in the summer.
Here is Hardie's tweet following his return to the scoresheet...
Buzzing to get back on the pitch. Been a long 7 months!! Massive 3 points for the boys!! Back in amongst the goals what a feeling ⚽️ https://t.co/7cjWg4ZMyG— Ryan Hardie (@Ryanhardie9) December 8, 2018
