With top-flight football now on a winter’s break, Rangers fans in the Borders have the chance to check out some of the club’s young talent when they face Vale of Leithen at Victoria Park tomorrow, with one name in particular attracting considerable attention on social media.

In their last game, Rangers’ B demolished Edinburgh University 8-2 with highly rated youngster Tony Weston bagging a hat-trick.

The Liverpool-born striker who moved to Glasgow from the Blackpool academy has been one of Rangers’ most exciting players at youth level this season.

He is now on 19 goals overall and although the 18-year-old is yet to feature for the senior squad, it may not be too long before Giovanni van Bronckhorst calls up Weston for the Rangers first-team given his form.

Rangers have a long history of bringing through players from the youth academy into the first-team, and striker Weston could be the next name off the production line.

Vale boss Grant Sandison is looking forward to the fixture and is under no illusion about the task ahead.

He said: “From what I hear there has been a lot of interest in the Rangers game because they have a lot of fans in the Borders. They have a few internationals in their squad although they don’t always play them but when they are at full strength they are good and hard to beat. They showed that by beating Bonnyrigg 5-1 and last weekend scored eight against Edinburgh University.”

The attendance is limited to 500 as per Scottish Government guidelines and tickets can only be purchased from Vale of Leithen FC.
