RANGERS boss Mark Warburton believes wide-boy Barrie McKay has the ability to become central to his plans.
The 21-year-old winger has dropped out of the starting line-up in recent weeks after an erratic start to the campaign.
But he made an immediate impact in late, late show against Dundee on Saturday after replacing Josh Windass for the final 25 minutes. And Harry Forrester headed home the winner in stoppage time.img_2563.jpg
Warburton said: “Barrie came on and was superb. He drove us up the pitch and was bright, full of energy, was clever and looked to move the ball.

“Barrie is such a talented player and you know what I think of him and how good a career he can have ahead of him.

“But he has had a lot of games with Rangers, been away with Scotland and these couple of weeks have helped him to recharge the batteries.

“It’s a challenge for a young, attacking player like Barrie for his defensive responsibilities and when the ball breaks down where does he need to be and what areas he needs to fill.

“It’s making sure if a player does that they understand the role they need to fill.

“But he can play wide left, wide right, number eight or number 10 and he has that flexibility we have talked about so much in the past.

“I’m delighted for him to see him that way, and credit to him for working hard and I think he will have a very big career ahead of him.

“He has a great work ethic and great commitment and he took that into the game on Saturday.”
