Alex Lowry aims dig at Celtic after Rangers sensation scores in penalty shoot-out

Alex Lowry took a swipe at Celtic after he scored in Rangers B’s penalty shoot-out win against the Parkhead side on Tuesday.

As Rangers’ senior side beat Ange Postecoglou’s men at Hampden Park in the Scottish Cup semi-finals on Sunday, Celtic’s official Twitter account refused to name the Gers and instead kept calling them the “opposition”.

Lowry, 18, scored in the Light Blues’ penalty success over the Bhoys today [19 April] to book a spot in the final of the Glasgow Cup.

After that, the young attacker took to his personal Twitter account to have a dig at Celtic’s childishness, saying: “Opposition goal.”


Lowry gets it, doesn’t he?

It’s no shock because the young attacking midfielder is a Rangers lad through and through and he clearly knows how to not only make himself look good to his own fans but also rile up the Bhoys.

It was a superb win for Rangers’ B team on Tuesday.

Christopher Jullien and Mikey Johnston were both involved for Celtic but despite naming senior players, it was the dazzling youngsters of Ibrox who triumphed and will play either Queen’s Park or Clyde in the Glasgow Cup final.

Lowry and his teammates are setting themselves up to have a really bright future at Rangers and we hope to see him, and others, break into the senior side soon.

Of course, Lowry has already had a taste of senior football this season, playing four times for the Gers.

He started a 1-0 win over Livingston in the Scottish Premiership in January and also played in all three Scottish Cup games before the Old Firm semi-final, scoring in one of them.

Lowry is doing absolutely everything to show he’s one to look out for in the coming years.

In other Rangers news, it’s a done deal as the Gers officially confirm a new signing at Ibrox.
