I dont know whether Rangers insistence on sticking to their playstyle is admirable or stupid

Doak might leap ahead of Kaide Gordon at this rate.

Isn't he small?

Compared to Cannonier he's a giant.

Doak looks a class above everyone out there.  Some very promising looking players on display today, hope a few of them get a chance with the first team some stage of this season (cup or bench).

Bad decision from our centre back, will be good to see the team 10 vs 11.

Bet the ex Celtic boy loved that! Probably ropey defending in there but talk about delivering for the team when most needed. Looks a real talent.

Doak takes the piss every time I see him play. Hard not to be excited about him. He would have got meaningful football for Celtic this season you'd imagine. Cannonier as well, top scorer and he didn't even manage the first half today.

Imagine some of these will be involved in the League Cup match next week, he gave Elliot and Gordon debuts at 16 in the same competition so I wouldn't be surprised to see a couple more get their first appearances. Get them alongside some more experienced players and it should be a good watch.

It’s really impressive how well Tyler Morton has took to senior football at a high level(Championship) where many of his peers are going to league 1/2 for their first loans, Mortons gone straight into first team football for a team chasing promotion to the PL not to dissimilar to Elliott spell at the same club.

From his recent performances he looks a step above technically, passing obviously, but his dribbling and the way he’s had neat footwork to sidestep opponents aka Busquets has impressed me also and not what we quite got to see a lot last year for our first team but the way he’s always played for the u23a and 18s.

More impressive is physically he is coping fine as well which was always the biggest question mark for me, he has all the technical ability in the world but could he meet the physical requirements of being a midfielder at this club long term, so far he looks to have a bit more physically than I have him credit for I think last game he won 6 tackles which is impressive at any level.

Ironically for all the talk about us needing midfield reinforcements from the ages of 22-26 which is true, I can’t remember a time where we’ve had such an array of talent in the the CM position 22 and under starting from Jones and Elliott, I think below them Morton Balagizi Clarkson Bajcetic and possibly Clark are all midfielders who can have decent careers in top flight football.

Doak is moving closer and closer to involvement I'd think with these attacking injuries.
If he's being asked to head the ball too frequently - which isn't exactly his specialty - it could affect his ear and cause an infection. Especially if the ball hits him on the ear directly.

Could do with Kaide Gordon being fit too. Our attackers in the youth set ups seem injury prone too, some of them have had lengthy injuries. Stewart for example, and thinking back Brewster was the same.

No Bobby Clark for the 21’s tonight, so imagine he’s with the first team. Bajcetic playing, interestingly.

Watch a bit of the first half of the Blackburn game and Morton is a smart, smart midfielder. You watch him play and he has that presence of a player who has his next move already planned out. He may still be quite slight in frame but he isn't afraid of a battle for the ball and he isn't hiding. Constantly showing for the ball and his range of passing is something to behold, if any of you get a chance lads i'd seriously consider taking in a Blackburn game or two.

I have pretty high hopes for him in all honesty and having gone top (early days I know) it's good to have a positive relationship with Blackburn moving forward, could continue to be a good place to loan youngster, they played some nice stuff in the minutes I saw last night

Morton has a good level of confidence and he is definitely someone whos playstyle I think our midfield would benefit from right now.
