‘Thought he looked decent’: Some Rangers fans react as 27-year-old reportedly set for exit

A number of Glasgow Rangers fans have commented on the Herald and Times Sport claiming Matt Polster is reportedly on the brink of leaving Ibrox and returning stateside.

The 27-year-old right-back joined Rangers in January 2019 from MLS side Chicago Fire, penning a two-and-a-half-year deal at Ibrox.

At the time, Steven Gerrard said Polster was “a good professional, he’s in good shape, and I think he’s got the potential to be a first-team player here at Rangers” (Herald Scotland).

Polster made his Rangers debut against Hearts at Tynecastle last April in a 3-1 victory but has only managed nine appearances since, with just six of those games in the Scottish Premiership.

Back in March, Gerrard criticised Polster for his part in Bayer Leverkusen’s third goal in Rangers’ Europa League last-16 first-leg 3-1 defeat.

“Polster’s gone to ground. He’s got to take the man down and take a yellow card for the team,” Gerrard told Glasgow Live.

“If he doesn’t, he’s got to run all the way back. He actually gets back, does well. But you’ve got to be better in a one v one.”

According to Herald and Times Sport, Polster is now set for New England Revolution, with a six-figure sum apparently agreed between the two clubs.


Unable to dislodge James Tavernier from the Gers starting XI, Polster perhaps feels he’s unlikely to do so over the next season, after which his contract is set to end.

What has the Rangers fanbase made of the speculation? Below is some of the social media reaction:
