Andy Little is hoping to get a run up front for Rangers

The Northern Ireland forward netted the pick of the bunch as the Light Blues fought back from behind to claim a 3-1 win at Berwick on Saturday.

Injury problems within the squad meant Little was recently handed his preferred role of playing through the middle up front and he has not disappointed so far.

And he hopes he is on the right path to convincing boss Ally McCoist he should stay there.

Little said: "It's always been my aim. But there are other players who can do that role.

"They've been unlucky with injuries and thankfully I've had a good run now.

"I've stayed injury-free and I'm playing reasonably well so I'm just happy with that.

"At the start of the season, 'Jig' (Lee McCulloch) was playing up there and he was scoring goals for fun himself so there was no need to change it.

"I was thrown in because there was nobody else to play the position at the time and I'm delighted with how I've done in the three games I've played up there.

"I just need to keep it going and keep my place."
