Northern Ireland teenager Ross McCausland in dreamland after Rangers debut

By Darren Fullerton

Northern Ireland U21 forward Ross McCausland has described his Rangers debut in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Hearts as a “dream come true”.

McCausland, who has starred for the Ibrox club’s B team this season, made his bow as a substitute for on-loan Manchester United winger Amad Diallo.

And the 19-year-old made a positive impression, crossing for fellow teenager Cole McKinnon to fire home his first goal for the Light Blues.

On Instagram, McCausland wrote: “Dream come true today making my debut for the club I’ve grown up supporting! Good way to end the season.”

And on his Twitter, he added: “Proud moment today making my debut for this great club.”

McCausland, who has represented Northern Ireland at U21, U19 and U17 level, joined the Rangers academy from Linfield in the summer of 2019.

He agreed a contract extension with the Old Firm giants in September, a deal that commits him to the club until 2024.

At the time, head of academy Craig Mulholland said: “We believe that Ross still has lots of potential to realise and there is so much more to come from him.

“The modern game requires ‘1v1’ dominant players and this is a real strength that Ross has that we will look to enhance.

“He is a massive Rangers fan who is well supported by a strong family and we are all excited to see how he matures and develops as a player and person in the coming years.”

Rangers boss Gio van Bronckhorst rested a raft of senior stars in the final league game of the season ahead of Wednesday’s Europa League final with Eintracht Frankfurt.

On handing McCausland, McKinnon and Tony Weston their debuts, van Bronckhorst said: “We dominated against a very good side with a very young team so I’m really proud of my players, especially the youngsters.

“I told them once we pull on the Rangers shirt we’re expected to win the game and they accepted that really well.”
