Rangers breezed past Cove in their Scottish Cup third round clash at Ibrox last weekend.

But not all of their loan players enjoyed the same sort of success at their clubs. There were defeats, victories and some players didn't even manage game time in a somewhat mixed weekend of fixtures.

Here our Glasgow Times Sport writers take a look at each and every one of the Ibrox side's players at other clubs and keeps track on how they got on.

Glenn Middleton (St Johnstone)

Middleton may only have played around 15 minutes of St Johnstone's third round victory over Dundee at Dens Park, but he did what Callum Davidson sent him on to do, which was to manage the game.

Coming on for Stevie May, Middleton ran down the clock well but could have scored the second of the afternoon in their 1-0 win, only to drag a shot wide of the mark with seven minutes to play.

Jordan Jones (Sunderland)

Played 70 minutes of the Black Cats' draw against Peterborough away from home. He was unable to make the most of the start under manager Lee Johnson and was replaced by Lynden Gooch with 20 minutes to play.

Glasgow Times:

Jones was also not on the pitch when former Celtic star Aiden McGeady curled in a terrific free-kick equaliser after Siriki Dembele - brother of Hoops kid Karamoko - opened the scoring.

Stephen Kelly (Ross County)

It was a disappointing afternoon for young midfielder Kelly who was part of the Staggies side who lost 3-1 in their Highland derby against Inverness.

Of course playing 90 minutes in a game of that magnitude for the 20-year-old was vital for his development, but victory would have made it even sweeter. It started well when Billy Mckay opened the scoring for the hosts but former Rangers winger Neil McCann - interim boss at ICT - saw his side blast back.

Goals from Nikolay Todorov, Daniel MacKay and Shane Sutherland saw the visitors seal their place in the next round of the cup.

Brandon Barker (Oxford Utd)

Barker played the full 90 for his club but could not make the difference as they lost 2-1 at home to Accrington Stanley.

Playing slightly further forward than perhaps usual, Barker created some opportunities for his side going forward and unlucky not to score when a decent effort was deflected over the crossbar.

Ben Williamson (Arbroath)

It was a big weekend for the impressive Williamson who continues to put in terrific performances in the Championship. Arbroath were squaring off against Alloa in a vital bottom of the league crunch match, and it was Williamson's men who came out on top.

Glasgow Times:

Jack Hamilton gave his side the lead before Alloa's Alan Trouten levelled. It looked like the game would be heading for a draw but David Gold popped up and nicked the win for Dick Campbell's troops and Williamson took to social media after the game, beaming at the victory. He said: "What a win," with applause emojis.

Josh McPake (Harrogate Town)

The tricky winger could not provide the spark for his side as they succumbed to Port Vale at home.

It would have been a frustrating afternoon for the former Greenock Morton loanee but, to take positives, was another 90 minutes.

Lewis Mayo (Dunfermline)

Mayo did well in a Pars side who managed a goalless draw at home against Championship leaders Hearts. The Jambos may well be in the midst of a sticky patch but Mayo put in a shift against the likes of the experienced Peter Haring and Andy Irving to ensure his side did not end up empty handed against Robbie Neilson's men who are currently 11 points clear at the top of the table.

Kai Kennedy (Raith Rovers)

Wide man Kennedy was subbed off as Raith Rovers fell to Premiership opponents Livingston.

Glasgow Times:

The 19-year-old will undoubtedly be pleased to have started at the Tony Macaroni Arena against top tier challengers. And even although it ended in a 2-1 win for the Lions, the added minutes will do Kennedy the world of good.

Ciaran Dickson (Queen of the South)

Part of the starting XI alongside two of his Rangers teammates in their 3-1 defeat against Hibs in the Scottish Cup last night.

Did well enough against Premiership opposition, which will sit very well with Steven Gerrard and Rangers as, obviously, that is the long-term goal with this type of loan move.

Glasgow Times:

Rhys Breen (Queen of the South)

Had a relatively quiet game in front of the BBC Scotland cameras. Was kept on his toes but, like Dickson, will be glad to have been handed game time against higher-ranked opponents.

James Maxwell (Queen of the South)

Maxwell looks the real deal at left-back. Put in a brilliant shift against a really tricky Martin Boyle as well as new Scotland cap Kevin Nisbet and got forward enough to provide an attacking threat for Queen's down the other end.

Scored, too, after a terrific piece of skill to get beyond his marker Paul Hanlon.

Glasgow Times:

Dapo Mebude (Queen of the South)

Didn't get enough time to inject life into Queen's, in fairness to him, coming off the bench with 15 to play and already 3-0 down.

Did not play:

George Edmundson (Derby County), Jamie Murphy (Hibs)
