Newcastle loan player makes it 8 goals in 12 starts

6 years ago

Newcastle loan player Haris Vuckic made it 8 league goals for Rangers despite only having started 12 Championship games for the Glasgow club.

The latest goal on Saturday came with a power header from a corner as Rangers trailed Falkirk 2-0, the Newcastle man scoring with seven minutes to go and Nicky Law scoring a last gasp equaliser.

Ironic that this latest Vuckic goal came from a corner, on the same day that Newcastle gave Swansea the freedom of the box whenever they had a corner but United looking their usual clueless selves when they won any.

With only a draw against Falkirk, Rangers now look destined to finish third and that will mean an extra two matches in the play-off process than if they finish second. Hibs a point clear in second place with only one match to play.

These extra matches may yet see some other Newcastle loan players show their faces, yesterday only Haris Vuckic was involved in the squad, with Bigirimana, Mbabu, Ferguson and Streete all absent.

Haris Vuckic

“I think their goalkeeper was the man of the match today, he was excellent. We had so many chances but we have to score if we want to win.

“We were not so good in the last pass but they were organised and it was hard to break them.”

Strong bench:

“I think we are prepared (for play-offs) because in 10 days we had four games in a row and we have a good squad as well. The bench is good so we can rotate and some of our fresh players can come in and do the job as well.

“If we are going to be third we have two extra games so I think our whole squad is going to be needed to get through.”
