Rangers fans are expecting big things from Scott Arfield, after the former Burnley man grabbed two goals in the Gers’ 6-0 friendly win over Bury.
Steven Gerrard had a very happy start to his managerial career on Friday as his side romped to a 6-0 win in front of over 41,000 fans at Ibrox.
League Two side Bury were on the receiving end, and there were plenty of impressive performances from Gerrard’s men.
18 year-old Zak Rudden drew praise from his manager for his late goal, and Nikola Katic bagged a goal on his debut.
No one was more impressive than Arfield though, who followed up a close range effort by capping off a lovely team move shortly after the break.
The 29 year-old, valued at £2.7m by Transfermarkt, made the move up north this summer, after making nearly 200 league appearances at Turf Moor.
Fans are delighted with his performance in the friendly, and they’re excited to see more from the 12-cap Canadian.

Arfield is gona be a massive player for us. His energy in the middle of the park is exactly what we need. Katic and Goldson look solid. Great first half performance ❤️⚪️?

Arfield looks the type of player we thought Dorrans was.

Arfield outstanding in the middle. McCrorie looking like he’s played DM for 10 years. A back 4 who look composed and confident in each other. An exciting crop of young talent getting game time (Middleton is going to be sensational)
