The young playmaker has often been shunted out of his preferred central berth by boss Ally McCoist but, with Ian Black carrying an injury, he could revert to that position for the trip to Falkirk tomorrow.

Macleod, though, says he just wants to play his part no matter the job he is asked to do.

The 20-year-old star said: "Central midfield is certainly my position, but if I'm asked to play somewhere I'm not going to have any arguments.

"To be honest, I'm just happy I'm in the side and playing. Whether that's on the right, left or in the middle, I am pleased.

"I would like to play in the middle at some point, but the boys in there are doing relatively well. If I'm asked to go wider I'm happy to do so.

"I played wide a few times when I was coming through the youth teams so I just have to try to do the best I can whatever position I'm in, even if it isn't my strongest one."

Rangers head into the Bairns clash on the back of Sunday's 2-1 defeat to Hearts in their first game in the Championship.

Macleod is confident they'll get back on track at the first opportunity.

"I've no doubt we'll bounce back," he told "We were more disappointed with the result than performance but everyone knows we can do better.

"We just have to look ahead now and hopefully we'll get the three points at Falkirk."
