The Ibrox prospect is spending time on loan away from Rangers in English League Two this season.
Rangers prospect Zak Rudden, currently on loan at Plymouth Argyle, scored his first goal of the season in England on Tuesday night, delighting some fans of the Pilgrims.
Rudden’s side were playing away to Swindon Town in the EFL Trophy, romping to a 3-0 victory after the Ibrox youngster got the scoring underway in the first half.
Still just 19, Rudden is gaining vital senior experience on loan but had struggled to make a scoring impact in his five previous appearances.
With the one under his belt, the hope will be he can go on to score regularly in the league too.
Rudden himself posted on social media, suggesting that the effort was overdue since his summer move.

Last season the teenager had a productive spell on loan at Falkirk, scoring 12 goals in 31 Scottish Championship matches.
A prospect who is closely monitored by Rangers supporters, hopes are high he cans how the quality to become a regular at Ibrox.
Loans are something that have become a clear development strategy for the Gers in recent years with other prospects such as Ross McCrorie and Greg Docherty both spending time in the English lower leagues.
If Rudden can find consistency and hit the headlines on a regular basis, he’ll certainly give Steven Gerrard something to think about.
These Plymouth fans were delighted to see him score his first goal for the club, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Well done Zak. Definitely a starter on Saturday.
