COWDENBEATH’S new loan striker, Kane Hemmings, has pledged to show Ally McCoist he is worthy of a place in Rangers’ first team.
The 20-year-old has joined the Blue Brazil on loan for the rest of January as he looks to get his career back on track after knee surgery, making his debut in the 1-1 draw with Morton at Central Park on Saturday.
With the likes of Lee McCulloch, Andy Little, Kevin Kyle, Kal Naismith and Francisco Sandaza all ahead of him in the battling for striking spots, Hemmings thinks the move to Cowden will give him the ideal chance to shine.
He said: “It’s exciting for me to go and get games because I think I need them at this stage of my career.
“I’ve had a difficult time with injuries and I’ve been out of football for the best part of a year, but I’m fully fit again and my knee feels as good as new so this will be good for me.
“There are four games while I’m at Cowdenbeath and, with there not being a lot of scope for bounce games at Rangers, I felt it would be best to go out on loan for a while.
“I’ve not played much competitive football and I just want to play, so hopefully I can go and do that over the next few weeks.
“I want to prove to myself I’m fit and that I can still play football.
“I’ve no doubts I can but it’s just a case of getting out there and doing it again.”
