And it was the Rangers hitman who got the scoring underway after 58 minutes, picking up a loose ball and drilling home to send Graeme Murty's side ahead.

Jamie Barjonas made the result safe in the closing stages, but it was 17-year-old McPake who took the post-match headlines for his goal and all-round display.

 

The teenager signed a new contract this summer amid speculation of a move to Liverpool and Roma, and Rangers fans are praising him on Twitter:
