Rangers striker Ryan Hardie wrapped up a hectic weekend by scoring the third goal for loan club Livingston in their 3-3 draw with Queen of the South on Saturday – less than 24 hours after playing for Scotland Under-21’s in Andorra.
Hardie came off the bench after 57 minutes for Livi and fired his side into a 3-2 lead before Nikolay Todorov grabbed a last-minute equaliser for the Palmerston club.
While on Scotland duty, Hardie contributed the assists for Lewis Morgan’s goal in the 1-1 draw with Andorra.
Gers fans were blown away by the striker’s commitment to go from playing in Andorra on Friday night before making the trip back to Scotland to turn out for Livi.

Ryan Hardie on a run of form like no other at the minute, genuinely making me consider him as someone we should keep on. Hasn't had a run in the team – and clearly has the ability to finish well. 8 games and 6 goals at my count? https://t.co/AD9vo513oK

Another goal for @Ryanhardie9 for Livi, often wondered what this lad had to do to get a better shot at the first team at Ibrox. Keep it going Ryan, hopefully play a part for the Gers next season

Played 90 minutes for Scotland Under 21s last night and has just put the Lions in front on the hour mark. Take a bow Ryan Hardie.

Hardie has been in sensational form since joining Livi on loan at the start of the year, scoring six times in ten appearances for the Championship side.
The Scotland Under-21 star’s current Ibrox deal comes to an end in the summer although after his form at the Tony Macaroni Arena, the Light Blues hierarchy must seriously be considering handing him an extension.
Hardie has made 17 appearances for the Gers, scoring twice, and has had spells on loan at Raith Rovers, St. Mirren and Livingston as well as representing Scotland at every age group so far.
In other Rangers news, the club must blow Celtic out of the water to sign the next Moussa Dembele.
