Rangers B make it 9 wins from 10 close gap at top of the table to one point

Rangers B have closed to within a single point of Lowland League leaders Bonnyrigg Rose to cap off a great day for the Gers – beating Rose 5-2 away from home.

Goals from Tony Weston, Cole McKinnon, Charlie McCann, Robbie Ure and Kane Richie-Hosler sealed a comfortable win as the Gers maintained their fantastic start to the season.

It didn’t take Rangers long to open the scoring with Weston breaking the deadlock after only nine minutes when his strike took a big deflection, leaving Rose keeper Andrews with no chance.

Rangers looked like taking control of the game from there, having a number of efforts at goal before the hosts began finding their footing without testing Jay Hogarth.

With less than ten minutes until the break, McKinnon grabbed a second for Rangers B after some excellent work by Weston.

The Englishman’s done well to get a cross over for McKinnon to fire home and put Rangers into a comfortable lead before half-time – despite Rose almost pulling a goal back before the break only for Jay Hogarth to deny them.

The hosts started the second 45 looking a bit more threatening as they tried to take the game to Rangers but the Gers extended their lead 15 minutes into the second half through Charlie McCann.

The former Manchester United youngster fired a rocket low beyond Andrews and into the bottom corner to kill off any hopes of a comeback.

With the three points in the bag, the Gers made changes, withdrawing Weston and Charlie Lindsay for Ross McCausland and Kane Ritchie-Hosler for the final stages.

Rangers weren’t done scoring though, Ure adding the fourth with 12 minutes to go after he finished well following some excellent build-up play by the Gers.

Bonnyrigg pulled one back seven minutes from the end, Hall slotting the ball beneath Hogarth but it was nothing more than a consolation.

The four-goal cushion was restored just minutes later as the final few minutes sparked frantic scenes, Richie-Hosler getting among the goals with a fantastic effort before the Gers were awarded a penalty in the final minute, which McCann missed.

Bonnyrigg then when promptly up the park and grabbed their second goal of the afternoon before the referee brought an end to an entertaining game.

The win makes it nine wins in ten games for Rangers B in the Lowland League as David McCallum and Brian Gilmour’s side further strengthen their title credentials.

Next up is a Challenge Cup clash with Championship side Ayr United on Tuesday night with Rangers looking to continue their recent excellent form and book their place in the third round.
