'Wonderful', 'Proud' - Rangers fans react as former player recovers from serious injury

Rangers Academy coach Andy Little returned to first-team action with Stirling Albion on Saturday after spending ten months sidelined with a fractured skull – and Gers fans were delighted to see the former Ibrox striker back playing.
Little – who combines coaching at Auchenhowie with playing part-time with the Binos – is a popular figure with the Gers support after his time as a player at Ibrox.

The Northern Irishman spent eight years at Ibrox and scored 38 times in 89 appearances before heading south to join Preston North End in 2014.
Gers fans were delighted to see Little back in action after spending so much time out and even fearing his career could be prematurely brought to an end.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Little came off the bench in the 76th minute of the Bino’s win over Clyde at Forthbank and will be hoping to get some regular game-time under his belt before the end of the season.
During his time at Ibrox, Little lifted the Scottish Premiership, Scottish Third Division and Scottish League One titles as well as forcing his way into the senior Northern Ireland side and winning 9 caps for his country.
Little re-joined the Gers in  May 2017 as a part-time Academy coach alongside fellow ex-Rangers players Peter Lovenkrands, Steven Wright and Brian Gilmour.
