'Best decision made this year' - Rangers fans react to Under-20s result v Copenhagen
Rangers fans have had a nightmare few days since the 4-0 Old Firm humiliation at the hands of bitter rivals Celtic – but a win by the club’s Under-20s over FC Copenhagen has given the Gers fans something to smile about.
The young Gers hosted the Danes at the club’s Auchenhowie training centre and fell behind to an early goal before strikes from Zak Rudden and Lewis Mayo gave the Light Blues a 2-1 win.
FULL TIME: Rangers 2-1 Copenhagen (Rudden 22' Mayo 43' | Winters 9')
A dominant performance from @RFC_Youth against a physical Copenhagen side.

As part of the club’s ongoing Games Programme, the Danish giants were the latest European side for the young Gers to test themselves against after facing the likes of Bayern Munich, Feyenoord, Liverpool, both Manchester giants and Valencia so far this season.
Gers fans were hoping to see some of the Under-20s promoted to the first-team in time for Sunday’s Scottish Premiership clash with Hearts – with one fan saying they should have been involved against Celtic last weekend.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

70 minutes into Rossiter is positive. Hopefully the boy gets a good pre season into him and we see him out there at Ibrox

The former Liverpool ace has spent much of his time at Ibrox out injured but could finally return to the first-team before the end of the season.
