Steven Gerrard lavishes praise on Rangers star Scott Arfield

The 31-year-old scored the game’s only goal in yesterday’s 1-0 win over Livingston.

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has told Rangers TV that midfielder Scott Arfield epitomises the type of player he wants at the club.

The 31-year-old scored his ninth goal of the season in all competitions to give the Gers a massive three points against Livingston.

Sunday’s game was originally scheduled for Saturday but Storm Dennis causing havoc meant that playing 24 hours later was the only option.

The Light Blues were denied a pretty clear penalty and saw a goal disallowed for offside.

Arfield’s goal did ensure a big three points, however, and after a sticky run of form a win was badly needed.

 

Gerrard heaped praise on the ex-Burnley and Huddersfield Town man after the victory.

He told Rangers TV: “Scott epitomises what we want. Out of possession he shows grit, he shows fight, he’s there for you and in possession, he’s always available.

“He stands up to be counted at important times, so we’re extremely happy with Scott at the moment.”

Arfield arrived at Ibrox in 2018, signing a four-and-a-half-year deal with the club.

He has scored 21 goals during his 89 appearances and is considered a regular in Gerrard’s team this season.

Versatile

Although Arfield is hardworking, perhaps one of his bigger attributes to Gerrard is the versatility he possesses.

This season he has played as an out and out central midfielder, defensive midfield and also as a No.10.

His work rate is pretty much unrivalled in the Rangers camp and he will probably be called upon again this week when Braga travel to Glasgow in the Europa League.

Rangers are 10 points behind Celtic with a game in hand and they will need a few more memorable performance from Arfield before the season is out.
