ALEX LOWRY savoured a 'dream come true' at Ibrox as he marked his Rangers debut with a Man of the Match performance against Stirling Albion.

The midfielder came off the bench to replace Ianis Hagi in the early stages of the Scottish Cup clash after the Romanian was forced off through injury.

And he would make the most of his chance to impress as he capped a fine individual showing with a clinical strike to open the scoring.

The performance of Lowry was one of the main positives for boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst to take from the fourth round clash as Rangers earned a 4-0 victory.

Lowry has been a stand-out for the B Team in the Lowland League this term and could now earn more match minutes for the champions in the second half of the campaign.

Lowry said: “It’s a dream come true, I have been here since I was 10 and it’s and scoring out there was just a dream.

“I never expected the opportunity tonight. As soon as Ianis went down I thought I might get something. When I got called over I was just buzzing.

“There were a bit of nerves coming on but when I started to relax I thought I did not too bad - a couple of sloppy moments but I can work on them on the training ground!

“It was just a dream. Since the day I joined the club this has been my goal, it’s just brilliant to do it now.

“The Lowland League has been good, challenging playing against tough teams week in and week out but it has set me up to play on nights like this.

“The manager has been amazing to be fair. All the staff have been brilliant. I am just thankful for them giving me my debut. I'll not be swapping my shirt!”
