Steven Smith sees first action, wreaks havoc with free kicks

Steven Smith played his first minutes on Saturday for the new-look Rangers, starting and playing the full 90 in a in a 5-1 demolishing of Arbroath in Scotland's 3rd tier of football.

Smith lined up for a couple of dangerous free kicks, almost scoring with one, and causing enough trouble with another to set up a goal after Albroath were unable to clear beyond the edge of the box.

Manager Ally McCoist has added significant talent to the squad this year, and followed that up with the kind of high-pressing, dominant style of play that fans have been clamoring for, compared to the more cautious approach seen for portions of last year.

So far, the results have been stellar. After just four games, Rangers sit five points clear at the top of Scottish League One, having dominantly won every game thus far, beating their opponents by a combined score of 18-1.

Steven Smith may still have a long road back to the top. Promotion this year would still leave his club one league shy of the Premiership. But any fear of setbacks in the team's long journey is diminishing, and Smith has won the more immediate battle--finding his way into the lineup, and taking full advantage of the opportunity.

Alright guys, I don't believe I have to say this but, just in case, please do not submit anything racist, homophobic, sexist or otherwise not appropriate for even the younger Timbers fans.
