Dream de­but­for Fur­man

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BYDANNYCARO

MID­FIELDER Dean Fur­man de­scribed his Rangers first team de­but as an “un­be­liev­able ex­pe­ri­ence” fol­low­ing the 3-1 vic­tory over Dundee United.

The 19-year-old from Edg­ware has turned heads in Glas­gow this sea­son and on Satur­day, he came off the bench to re­place Kevin Thom­son 52 min­utes into the Ibrox en­counter.

Hav­ing cap­tained the club’s re­serve team for most of the sea­son, Fur­man was de­lighted to fi­nally get his big chance. “It was a great ex­pe­ri­ence and I loved ev­ery minute of it. I’ve been buzzing since as play­ing in front of more than 50,000 fans at Ibrox is some­thing that will live with me for­ever.”

The South African-born mid­fielder was in­el­i­gi­ble for Wed­nes­day night’s Uefa Cup fi­nal against Zenit St Petersburg but hopes to be in­volved in the team’s re­main­ing fix­tures. Th­ese in­clude the Scot­tish Cup fi­nal against Queen of the South on May 24 as the team con­tinue their search for sil­ver­ware with four matches in eight days.

“Now I must keep my head down and keep work­ing hard and when the chance comes again I have to take it,” he said. “I hope Satur­day was just the start. It will be an almighty slog to win our re­main­ing games but we have shown an un­be­liev­able re­silience this sea­son.”
