Glasgow Rangers coach Peter Lovenkrands has praised Andrew Dallas and Jamie Barjonas as the Ibrox academy duo helped the Gers development squad run out 2-0 winners against English League Two side Cambridge United at the Hummel Training Centre.

The Light Blues took the lead after just nine minutes after winger Serge Atakayi played a perfectly weighted pass through to Dallas, who duly slotted the ball past U's goalkeeper Dimitar Mitov.

Barjonas then doubled the lead for Rangers just before the hour as he was found in space by Glenn Middleton on the edge of the box, rifling past the Cambridge keeper with a low shot into the bottom right-hand corner of the net.

"It was a really good build up to the first goal, the play through and the passing and then we had a wee bit of luck with the slip through but credit to Andy Dallas to realise it and take a gamble on it and going on and finishing it so it was a really good start for us," Lovenkrands told the official Rangers website.

"The goal in the second half from Barjonas, he’s just got that in him. I told him so many times that he needs to shoot more because he has got that in him. His goal was a really really good goal and from then on I think we looked comfortable."

Dallas, a 19-year-old striker, recently signed a new contract with Rangers and spoke of how he is eager to follow in the footsteps of Alfredo Morelos, watching him in training and picking up tips (Evening Times).

Barjonas, meanwhile, is contracted to the Light Blues until 2020 (official Gers website), the 20-year-old central midfielder also enjoying spells on loan at Bury and Raith Rovers last season.
