It was a slow week for Bayern Munich loanees — Ligue 1 was on a break, the Austrian Bundesliga and the German 2. Bundesliga are still on break, and some players were either left on the bench or didn’t make it onto the bench at all. Here is our summary of the limited action seen this week.

Malik Tillman - Rangers FC
Rangers FC faced Kilmarnock on the road in league play on Wednesday. Malik Tillman started on the bench, but made a brief appearance — coming on in the 78th minute. He had little time to influence the game, but did record one shot on goal in the 12 minutes played. Rangers beat the 10-man Kilmarnock 3-2.
Tillman got the start in Rangers’ cup tie away to St. Johnstone and played 71 minutes. He picked up a yellow before being making a pivotal pass in the build up to Rangers’ first and only goal.
