Robbie Fraser reveals Rangers message from Philippe Clement before dream debut

Robbie Fraser has lifted the lid on the message Philippe Clement gave to him before sending him on for his dream Rangers debut.

The young left-back is a product of the Ibrox club's academy and has captained the B team but has had to be patient until the age of 21 to get his first team bow. That came last night during the comeback thumping of Dundee, with the youngster getting the last half an hour in place of Ridvan Yilmaz.

Fraser was pleased with how he acquitted himself but admits he can definitely still keep improving. And being sent on knowing he had the belief of the manager seemed to stand him in good stead for his first run out in the Premiership.

He told Rangers TV: "The manager said that he believed in me, he liked what he saw of me and he told me go on and just be positive and do what I've been doing. I felt like I did that, but, of course, there are moments that I can look at in my game and hope to improve.

"I was pleased [with my performance], I felt good when I was on the ball, communicating with the backline, I felt good but again there are always moments to get better."

It was a moment he has worked towards with 14 years of graft. But the hard work is certainly not going to stop now.

Fraser added: "It's something you dream about as a young boy, coming on and playing at Ibrox, three points in front of the fans. It doesn't get much better than that.

"[From here] I'll keep chipping away like I've always done. Being patient is something that I've always prided myself on, I'll keep working hard.

"We've got a huge couple of games coming up now. We'll obviously try and finish off our league business with a win, and then we're heading into a huge cup final next week."
