David Templeton hailed his double against Clyde as the best of his career after stealing the show at Broadwood on Saturday.

The winger contributed with two superb goals as Rangers claimed a convincing 4-1 win to maintain their 22-point advantage at the summit of the Irn-Bru Third Division.

Templeton now has four doubles since joining the Light Blues from Hearts in August including two goals on his debut but he believes his latest efforts top the lot.

He said: "That's definitely the best double I've scored.

"I've not had many doubles in my career but that has to rank up there as my best one. "It's good to score nice goals but its more important to get the win."

Templeton's previous best goal tally for a season was eight in 2005-06 at Stenhousemuir nd he has already crashed through that barrier this term with 11 for Rangers and 13 all together.

Kevin Watt pulled a goal back for Clyde early in the second half but the outcome never looked in doubt with Andy Little also on the score-sheet twice.

The Northern Irishman has relished the opportunity to lead the line and also bagged a double against Queens Park last week.

Templeton believes wresting the jersey from Little will be a hard task when others return from injury.

He said: "If you're playing up front and scoring goals, there is no reason to change it.

"I'm sure that every time Andy gets chances, he will score.

"He's a good finisher and you could see that with his second goal. It was a great turn and finish from him."
