Newcastle Striker Can't Stop Scoring

We've not got much to overreact to as we're basically playing out the string, so let's get carried away!

Newcastle United are stuck in a firmly unexciting end of the season once again in the Premiere League, so any little bit of excitement counts, right?  While Sunderland were busy getting played off their own pitch by Aston Villa (!) 4-0 today, Newcastle fans were silently receiving something else to get carried away about.  Haris Vuckic scored a goal for Rangers.

He is the only one of the five Loan Rangers currently playing for the Scottish Championship third-place side, but don't let that deter you.  Not only has he scored in Rangers' 1-1 draw with Livingston today, he is now on 2 goals in 2 matches, having scored against Queen of the South in his last match as well!  The goal against QoS was a useful one for Rangers as Queens are in fourth place behind Rangers as they jockey for promotion play-off positions.

What's that you say?  Scottish Championship?  Competition level?  Livingston 5 points adrift at the foot of the table and 14 from any sort of safety?  I'm not having it.  He's scoring, and we're going to get excited just because.

Haris is scoring.  How do you feel today?
