Teenage midfielder Jamie Barjonas marked his Rangers debut with an appearance of the bench in Sunday’s 2-1 win over Partick Thistle – and Gers fans on Twitter were impressed by what they saw.

The Scottish giants made the short trip to Firhill where they took on a Partick side currently sitting in sixth place.

The team started poorly and a goal from Kris Doolan in the first 15 minutes gave Partick an early lead.

However, manager Pedro Caixinha used all three of his substitutes, which included Barjonas on the 71st minute and Rangers ended up achieving a 2-1 victory with goals coming from Barrie McKay and Joe Garner in the final 10 minutes.

The encounter marked a fine first game for Barjonas to make his bow for the Ibrox club and many supporters commented that they were impressed by the 18-year-old on social media after his limited time out on the pitch.

Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Barjonas was one of the three academy players to be have been named on the bench at Firhill with Andrew Dallas and Serge Atakayi also joining him.

Meanwhile, young duo David Bates and Myles Beerman started the match and fans will be hoping more academy players can make the step up to the first team in the future.
