Rangers youngster Ross McCausland was delighted to get his first goal for the club despite Aris Limassol getting a point at Ibrox.

The 20-year-old winger grabbed a second-half equaliser after replacing Todd Cantwell in the 1-1 draw on Thursday night.

Philippe Clement men’s Europa League hopes now hang by a threat going into the last game of the group, however they have secured European football after Christmas.

Rangers face a tough trip to Real Betis on matchday six and if they don’t win they will be hoping Aris will do them a favour against Sparta Prague in Cyprus.

But if they fail to beat Betis and Sparta win then they will drop into the Europa Conference League knockout stages.

After the game McCausland, who had a goal chopped off against Livingston three weeks ago, described his strike as a “bit of a blackout moment”.

He said: “It was a bit of a blackout moment when the ball hit the back of the net, after I hit the shot Tav turned round to me and I don’t think he realised it had hit the net either.

“Obviously it’s my first senior goal for Rangers so I am delighted with it.

“The away tie in Limassol was obviously my first senior appearance to come here on my third European appearance and get my first Rangers goal is frightening.

“After my goal against Livingston was chopped off it was frustrating for a few days after because that would have been my first goal, so I think that gave me a wee bit of drive to finally get that Rangers goal so I was delighted to get it tonight.”
