FC Midtjylland wonder-kid Nikolas Dyhr hopes he has played his way into contention to face Rangers following a dream debut for the Danes. 

The Denmark under-19 international was handed his maiden start for his boyhood club on Sunday and shone as Midtjylland claimed a 2-0 triumph over AC Horsens. 

While Sory Kaba was the man who bagged a brace to secure all three points, Dyhr has given boss Kenneth Andersen food for thought as they seek to overturn a 4-2 deficit in Glasgow on Thursday night.

Dyhr said: “I know there are a lot of strong players in the squad but, now I have played in the starting line-up, I will fight to stay there. You always want more. 

“I have dreamed of making my debut for a long time - but you don’t like to talk about it, in case it doesn’t come true! 

“It was really special to make my debut, play alongside such talented players and to get the win. It was a perfect day. 

“I was nervous before the game but thankfully there is not too much time to think about it. Once the game starts, you just do your job and play the game. Hopefully, it is the first of many.”
