There’s no question Alex Lowry’s performances since gently breaking into the Rangers first team have been completely impressive.
Quick, mature, with great vision and great composure, Lowry has already scored for the seniors and shown he’s up to that level.
What’s more, his one league appearance as a mere 18 year old against Livi in January was extremely productive.
Two shots, one on target, and one key pass as he began learning at that level, and certainly did himself justice.
His passing level in that one too was excellent – 83% for an 18 year old in the hammer throwers of the SPL is very impressive, and the potential of Lowry is significant.
There’s little doubt Joe Aribo’s form has been far from vintage this year, and Lowry is doing enough to get more minutes.
Indeed, he’s done extremely well in the cup, making 3 appearances already – and with Ianis Hagi potentially out till the autumn, Lowry has a chance to push Aribo all on his own, and he’s getting more and more opportunities to do so.
Let’s not forget he’s 18, literally a boy, and while it’s true if they’re good enough they’re old enough, well, Messi was too, and he as well did not just become a first team regular at 18. He was eased in. 7 appearances his first season, 17 his second, 26 his third and so on.
Lowry just has to keep doing what he’s doing and let the management take care of him.
But he’s on the right path.
