New man in town Ross Lyon is aiming to settle in quickly after signing on loan with Stranraer.

The deal to bring the teenager from Ibrox to Stair Park was only finalised a matter of hours before Saturday's draw with Queen's Park.
 
The 19 year old said the deal had been worked on throughout the week, with a quick meeting with what were his potential team mates on Thursday evening.
 
He said: "On Thursday night, I got a phone call at about 6pm and training was at 6.45pm.

"So, I popped along to training and showed face, met them and saw what they were doing for training.
 
"It was important for me to go along on Thursday and get to know the players and try to see what is in the team and how they like to play.
 
"I didn't want to turn up and not know anyone."
 
The midfielder came on for the impressive Cameron Elliott at Hampden Park and got the final seven minutes.
 
The scores were locked at 1-1 but Kyle Turner's strike with just seconds remaining seemed enough to secure all three points.

Unfortunately, there would be one last twist in the tale with Adam Cummins scoring a stoppage time penalty.
 
Lyon said: "It was a tough one - I thought we were on top for most of the game.
 
"You think we have gone and won the game in the last minute but obviously go and concede a penalty."
 
Lyon, who has been with Rangers for more than a decade, featured on the bench for the Glasgow side's first team on the last day of last season against St Johnstone.
 
He also featured in the Rangers under 20s side in the League Challenge Cup last term, alongside now first teamer Ross McCrorie and Wigtownshire's very own Ryan Hardie.
 
However, for now, Lyon's focus is very much on getting game time in senior football.
 
He said: "Although, it is a team game and obviously we are looking for three points but I've got to show myself on a better stage.

"It is first team football compared to playing under 20s or youth football.
 
"I think first team football is more about the result and doing anything to get the result in the first team games.
 
"In the under 20s, you can play well and kind of get away with it a bit but obviously you always want to win.
 
"It is more about getting the result in the first team games."
