Video: Rangers Loanee Jordan Thompson Scores Scandalous Volley v Dundee United

Rangers loanee Jordan Thompson scored a scandalous volley for Raith Rovers against Dundee United at the weekend.

The Northern Irish youngster joined the Kirkcaldy side on a loan deal until January earlier this month and has wasted no time showing his quality.

He’s started all four games since joining and got his first goal in Raith’s 2-2 draw with Dundee United at Tannadice at the weekend.

Rovers fans in attendance will have loved Thompson’s strike – and Rangers supporters will be delighted to see one of their young boys hitting a stunner out on loan.

The goal

It came in the 38th minute, with Raith trailing 2-0 after United took the lead through Will Flood and Cammy Smith goals:

Luckily, one supporter was recording as Thompson’s goal went in – catching some brilliant fan footage and the delighted reaction of the away support:

How good is that?

Breakthrough

Thompson signed for Rangers at the start of last season after leaving Manchester United’s youth academy, but has made just three top team appearances since then.

He’ll be hoping a successful loan spell out at Raith will help him return to Ibrox next year and stake a claim for a place in Mark Warburton’s team.

If he keeps scoring goals like this, we’re sure he’ll have no issue doing that.
