Rangers star Matt Polster is excited to get going in Scottish football having made his debut against Hearts on Saturday.
The January signing from Chicago Fire replaced Steven Davis at Tynecastle to a brilliant reception from the Rangers away faithful.
Polster has recently been improving his fitness with the reserves, but was finally called up by Steven Gerrard and was able to play a part in the 3-1 win that saw Nikola Katic, Ryan Jack and Jermain Defoe all score.
And now Polster has explained what exactly he can bring to the game next season. He said, as quoted by The Daily Record: “I think I can do well, that’s why I made the jump when I did. I think my style of play suits Scotland. I’m aggressive, I like to tackle, I have a good engine and a good passing range.”
Polster didn’t have enough time to showcase what he’s about against Hearts, but his comments are sure to encourage Rangers fans ahead of next season.
Polster’s aggression will stand him in good stead given the physicality of the Scottish top-flight.
‘A good engine’ is also something highly valued by Gerrard and is something that could make him invaluable next term. Working off the ball is something that has improved significantly under the Liverpool legend and Polster could well buy into that.
Polster can also play right-back and in midfield, which could see him come in extremely handy in 2019/20.
