Rangers TV pundit can't believe what he's just spotted from Alex Lowry
Alan Hutton was dazzled by Alex Lowry’s substitute cameo for Rangers in Sunday’s 2-0 win against Dundee United.
The former Gers defender and Rangers TV pundit, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, lauded the 18-year-old’s vision and awareness when in possession.
Lowry came on for the final 25 minutes at Ibrox to replace Scott Arfield.
It was the teenager’s first league appearance since his Premiership debut against Livingston back in January.
Hutton, who was at Ibrox for Rangers TV’s coverage of the game, admitted he was thrilled with what he saw from the young attacking midfielder.
Hutton told Football Insider’s Russell Edge: “Alex Lowry was outstanding. He only passes forward. That’s the thing that stuck out to me.

“Every time he gets the ball, you see his head is up, he’s scanning the pitch and he wants to play that killer pass. More often than not, it comes off.
“For a boy that’s so slight, he’s only 18-years-of-age, he’s got the presence to move the ball. He doesn’t need to be physical with people because he understands space and what’s round about him.
“It was excellent.”
Lowry has made five first-team appearances for Rangers since breaking through the youth ranks at Ibrox.
The teenager signed a new contract on Saturday (7 May) after this site revealed the Light Blues were in advanced talks over a deal.
Lowry’s emergence at Ibrox has caught the eye of Premier League clubs.
As detailed by Football Insider last month, both Manchester City and Newcastle United held talks over a possible move before his new Gers deal.
