‘A must’, ‘crucial’: Some Rangers fans want £16k-a-week ace back in the starting XI tonight

A number of Glasgow Rangers fans are hoping Steven Gerrard names Scott Arfield in the starting XI for tonight’s Europa League clash at Ibrox.

The 31-year-old was on the fringes of the Rangers first team at the start of the season, mostly coming on as a substitute.

However, Arfield has come on in leaps and bounds in recent weeks thanks to his attacking intent and willingness to press unsettling opposition defences.

To date, he has made 16 appearances in all competitions this term, scoring three goals and registering three assists.

Arfield came off the bench in Rangers’ last game, the 2-0 Premiership win over Livingston, but some Bears think he’d be a great shout from the start against Lech Poznan tonight.

Here is what some Gers fans have been saying on social media:

 

Arfield has been superb for Rangers over the past few months, his runs from deep and across the opposition defence, not to mention his vision and his engine, giving Gerrard and the squad something they’ve been sorely lacking.

It’s not just about what he offers to the Light Blues though – his attitude, even whilst having to sit on the bench, has been superb, prompting the manager to not only give him the game time he’s rightfully earned, but also single the £16,000-a-week player out for praise.
