Journalist thrilled by Rangers forward Zak Lovelace performance v Hamilton Academical

The Rangers Under-18s team secured a 3-0 victory over Hamilton Academical at Ibrox on Friday, 17 March, with Zak Lovelace impressing a Heart and Hand journalist.

Roscco, who covers the B Team and Academy for Heart and Hand, was in attendance when he saw the 17-year-old offer a threat in front of goal.

In the first half, Lovelace saw himself getting booked for a dive, but apart from that looked like a threat in front of goal for Gers.

Roscco wrote on Twitter, “Lovelace booked for a diving (proper Tom Daley effort, wont lie) but is looking dangerous when we get the ball to him.”

He also claimed that Michael Beale was in attendance and he would’ve taken in the performance of the London-born striker.

Lovelace is one of the brightest talents in the academy and it’s always good to see him performing well.

What’s even more special for him is that Beale was there to see him in the skin and it’s always a special moment to impress your manager.

The 17-year-old may not have bagged a goal but as mentioned above, he was threatening constantly and will certainly start finding the back of the net more regularly if he keeps getting in these positions.

He’s already made his debut for the club earlier this season in August against Queen of South and he’ll soon want to feature in some league games as well.

The diving aspect is something that we’re not overly proud of and hopefully, he can cut that out of his game sooner rather than later.

We will be keeping tabs on the young striker in the coming weeks as he’s certainly one of those who is next line to break into the first team.
