Andrew Little returns with a goal in Rangers victory

GOAL: Andrew Little
GOAL: Andrew Little

Andrew Little may have been a serious injury doubt in the run-up to Saturday’s 6-2 win over East Stirlingshire at Ochilview – but the Northern Ireland international was fit enough to play and to score his first goal since August.

Andy has been troubled with a foot injury since the summer but whilst the problem is not fully rectified the Rangers forward is hopeful that the worst is now over.

“I missed a good few games which was disappointing and I’ve been a little bit annoyed that I’ve not got on the scoresheet in the last few games. I was just relieved to find the net again,” said Little.

“As I’ve said from the start of the season I want to play as much as I can and get thirty or forty games under my belt.

“It’s good to get a few goals as well. My foot has been a bit of an issue for me but I wore a padded sock in the game which helped.

“I’ve had a few scans and although it’s not completely healed, it’s not as bad as feared and I’m able to play on so hopefully I’ll get stronger.”

As well as Little’s strike a bonus for Rangers was a first goal for the club by Kevin Kyle.

“We were all delighted when Kevin scored. He has worked really hard and he’s a great guy to have about the team,” added Little.

“He was really keen to get that goal and you could see it meant a lot to him when it finally came.

“We scored plenty of goals today and we’re showing we’re starting to find some form.

“We’re starting to gel a bit better now. The only disappointing thing was that we let East Stirlingshire back into the game twice and that wasn’t like us. We don’t normally do that…we should never have lost two goals. A lack of concentration cost us. We need to kill off teams.”
