WEYMOUTH star Jack Simpson was "delighted" after making his Rangers debut on Sunday.

Gers' boss Steven Gerrard introduced Simpson from the bench for the final 23 minutes during the 4-1 Scottish Premiership win over Dundee United.

The 24-year-old former Bournemouth centre-back donned the number four shirt at Ibrox.

Rangers are now potentially three wins from clinching their first title in 10 years - and could seal the trophy at enemies Celtic on Sunday, March 21.

Speaking to RangersTV, Simpson said: "I am delighted to have made my debut and the most important thing is three points.

"But, especially from the back four and goalkeeper's point of view, we are disappointed to concede a sloppy goal towards the end there as clean sheets mean a lot to us with the standards we set here.

"So I am pleased, but also a little disappointed.

"The standard is very high here. Just coming in to training, everyone is on it here and not even just on the pitch, but around the training ground and the gym, the standards are set very high and everyone is expected to do everything they can to be ready for matchday.

"So I have been very impressed so far. I feel like the more I learn how the team plays and the more gametime I get, the more comfortable I feel and I think I can add something.

"I feel comfortable on the ball and I want to bring the ball out and be aggressive defensively on and off the ball.

"So I definitely feel like I can add something to the team seeing the way they play."

Simpson was also on the bench for a rollercoaster 4-3 win at Royal Antwerp in the Europa League last week, and hopes to be involved for the return leg this Thursday (5.55pm).

He added: "Everyone wants to play European football when I was a kid so it was exciting to be able to do that.

"It ended up being a crazy game really so it was a positive to come away with the four away goals to bring it back here and I am looking forward to the game on Thursday and hopefully we can go through."
