18-year-old youngster Zak Rudden is now back with Rangers following the expiry of his half-season loan spell out with Falkirk.

Whilst the striker is yet to debut for us, the Under 20 prospect headed out Falkirk at the end of August for some much-needed senior experience, and with Rangers rated him highly, he certainly hasn’t let anyone down as he more than adjusted to life in the Scottish Championship, scoring seven goals in 15 league games.

With the deal over, with a goal return like that, he’s going to be a massive loss for the side and manager Ray McKinnon has already confirmed to the Falkirk Herald that talks have been reopened with counterparts at Ibrox over whether or not they can get the lad back until the end of the campaign.

“He has been recalled but we are speaking to Rangers to see if something can be worked out. Of course he would be a big miss, he has done so well for us and scored eight goals, but he’s back in Glasgow now. As it stands he is out of Saturday’s match which is an important one for us. We’d love to extend his deal.”

Given how well he was doing it seems like a no-brainer to me to send him back out, and there will probably be a quick decision made here.
