Yesterday’s 5-0 demolition of Oxford couldn’t have gone much better for Steven Gerrard’s Rangers and it included an impressive performance from 19-year-old academy graduate Lewis Mayo.

The young defender managed to get on the scoresheet as Rangers ran out comfortable winners just 48 hours before their trip to St. Joseph’s in European action. Mayo impressed during his 45 minutes on the pitch and Rangers fans are loving seeing one of their academy graduates take his chance in the first-team, even if it was a pre-season match.

The 19-year-old Rangers player and supporter bundled the ball into the Copland Road End at Ibrox- something every fan dreams of doing for The Gers. Mayo probably won’t be involved as Rangers travel to Gibraltar to face St. Joseph’s in the Europa League first qualifying round tomorrow but his goal and performance will have done his chances of staking a claim to be a part of Gerrard’s first-team squad going forward no harm whatsoever. Competition from Nikola Katic, Connor Goldson and new signing George Edmundson mean it’ll be hard for the 19-year-old to get a chance but he’s shown so far that he’s more than ready to impress.

These Rangers fans are loving seeing one of their own succeed and hope it leads to the breakthrough of one of their brightest stars.
