CAMMY PALMER reckons Rangers will continue to reap the rewards of their continental challenges at youth level this season.

The Light Blues earned a number of impressive results last term as the likes of Valencia and Bayern Munich were beaten in their Games Programme at Under-20 level.

The Colts have been in fine form once again this season and were 5-0 winners over Hamburg at the start of the month as Palmer and Serge Atakayi netted and Andy Dallas hit a hat-trick in Germany.

And midfielder Palmer is delighted with the progress that Graeme Murty’s side are making as the Auchenhowie kids look to make their Ibrox breakthroughs.

He told SportTimes: “The way we played, we were so clinical, and that was a big thing because we have struggled with that sometimes. We have dominated against teams and really passed them off the park but then not had the goals to show for it.

“So I think that was the main thing against Hamburg. We played well and got the goals to go with it, and the clean sheet as well.

“At the start of the season it was quite hard to adapt to the different styles but I think the Games Programme really helped us and we have changed the way we can play against teams. Some sit off, some have a high press.

“Hamburg was an example of us pressing and it really benefitted us. These games have given us experiences that we can use now so that we can play against any opposition.

“I have really enjoyed the season so far and I have played a lot of games, which is a big thing. I have the games under my belt and I have played some European teams.”
