Rangers midfielder Alan Gow is determined to become a regular at Ibrox after making his competitive debut for the club on Wednesday.
The 24-year-old joined the Glasgow side from Falkirk in the summer and went from being a regular at his old club, to a bench warmer at best for Rangers.
However Gow has confidence in his ability and is hopeful that his debut - in the 4-0 CIS Insurance Cup victory over East Fife - will be a springboard for his Rangers career.
"I've had a bit of bad luck and I've missed a few games at the start, but the team has been doing well," he said.
"I've played a few 'bounce' games and friendlies, so it was good to play a competitive game.
"I'm getting fitter all the time and I hope I will be involved. I'm still keeping myself fit and need to be ready."
Patience wearing thin
However patient Gow has been, he issued a warning to Gers boss Walter Smith by stating he is not going to remain idle at the club.
"Obviously I'm not going to just sit back each week and accept not playing.
"I've done well in all the friendlies. Everyone knows Rangers are a massive club, and I just need to wait for my chance."
