Rangers loan watch: Cedric Itten scores, Niko Katic on the bench and Jack Thomson hits the winner


The loan market has been capitalized on in recent seasons by the Rangers with entries and exits.

And there are plenty of players linked to the club plying their trade elsewhere this season, but Steven Gerrard will always keep a close eye.

You have senior players like Cedric Itten and Nikola Katic trying to get games under their belt after struggling last season for a variety of reasons.

You also have some highly rated youngsters like Kai Kennedy and Josh McPake trying to make a name for themselves.

Here’s how they all fare in their loan clubs.

Cedric Itten

The great Swiss striker scored his first goal while on loan at Greuther Furth, against a fairly large club.

He scored a second-half header against Bayern Munich, but it was too little too late for his side who lost 3-1.

Total number of appearances: 3

Goals: 1

Nikola Katic

The center-back was an unused replacement as Hajduk Split beat NK Lokomotiva 1-0.

He had played 90 minutes against Primorac in the middle of the week in the Cup but was back on the bench for this one.

Total number of appearances: 2

Goals: 0

Jake hastie

Was not involved as Partick Thistle lost 3-2 to Raith Rovers on Sunday.

He has not played since his appearance against Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

Total number of appearances: 2

Goals: 0

Glenn middleton

Was a second half substitute as St Johnstone looked to equalize against Hibs.

Couldn’t inspire a comeback as St Johnstone then fell to 10 men following Jamie McCart’s red card.

Total number of appearances: 9

Goals: 1

Lewis mayo

He’s another player on loan at Partick Thistle and he played the full 90 minutes as they crashed in a 3-2 loss.

Mayo has some first-team experience at Ibrox, but is looking to add more to his game as he was on loan to the Championship squad and continued his 90-minute run in the squad.

Total number of appearances: 6

Goals: 0

Kai kennedy

The exciting young winger was back in Dunfermline’s starting lineup and played 72 minutes before being replaced by Dom Thomas.

He couldn’t inspire his side to a win, however, as they drew 0-0 for the second week in a row, this time against Hamilton.

The Pars have been underperforming this season so far and are entrenched at the bottom of the table.

Total number of appearances: 5

Goals: 0

Jack thomson

The midfielder scored his first goal of the season and what time to do so as it gave his side a 3-2 win over Peterhead.

He played the full 90 minutes and added a third goal with 10 left after Luca Connell equalized four minutes earlier.

Total number of appearances: ten

Goals: 1

Josh McPake

McPake was a second-half substitute for Morecambe as they drew 3-3 in an incredible game against Accrington Stanley.

He was only on the pitch for three minutes when Morecambe secured his late equalizer thanks to former Hearts forward Cole Stockton, who scored twice.

He has been used as a substitute in three of Stephen Robinson’s last four men’s games, with his only start coming in the EFL Trophy against Everton U21.

Total number of appearances: 7

Goals: 0
