Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to heap praise on Scott Arfield, after the attacking midfielder netted a treble against Motherwell to help his teammates to a resounding 3-0 win.
The 30-year-old – who joined the Ibrox ranks last summer – grabbed his eighth, ninth and tenth league goals of the season to earn all three points for the Gers, where his link up with Jermain Defoe in attack was particularly impressive.

The win sees Steven Gerrard’s side move onto 66 points for the season, although they are still someway behind bitter rivals and league leaders Celtic.
Specifically, however, Arfield’s performance was a display enriched by clinical finishing, whilst his all-round game and decision making up top helped contribute to a very easy-on-the-eye victory for the Gers.
Some fans may have been fearful of a result in the absence of Alfredo Morelos, but Arfield stepped up to the plate as Rangers’ star man missed out through suspension.
Let’s see what the Rangers supporters have been saying on Twitter about Arfield’s performance…
Scotty Arfield was outstanding today. Great vision great link up play and GREAT well taken goals ??????

As I’ve said before…Scotty is our player of the year. Without a doubt. Most consistent outfield play this season. It’s shocking he is not on the shortlist. Sort that out! Px

Double figures for Arfield this season, will be a big player for us next season when we add more quality players.
