Scott Arfield can bring a new energy to Rangers midfield

As reported by The Daily Mail, a former manager of Scott Arfield has backed the player to be a success at Ibrox if he signs for Rangers this summer.

What’s the story?

Arfield has been linked heavily with a move north of the border to Ibrox this week after years of English Premier League and Championship football.

Former Huddersfield boss Lee Clark was the manager who brought him to English football, signing him from Falkirk in 2010, and he’s backing the player to be a huge hit at Rangers.

As quoted by The Daily Mail, the former Killie man said:

He’s just an outstanding lad and a tremendous footballer.¬†For me, it would be an outstanding signing for Rangers.

He’s very much a modern-day midfield player in terms of being box to box. His energy levels are ridiculous because he’s got tremendous fitness.

He did the business for Huddersfield and they got promoted to the Championship. He went on to Burnley and played a huge part in getting them promoted to the Premier League. He became a regular in their remarkable success story.

Is Arfield the midfield option that Rangers need this summer?

A good signing?

Arfield is exactly the kind of signing Rangers need to make if they’re to enhance their squad to the levels required to compete with Celtic consistently over the course of a season.

The midfielder has excellent experience and has been playing Premier League football for two seasons now, likely giving him an edge in his game beyond most players in the Scottish Premiership.

Also possessing great versatility, regardless of who the new incoming manager is at Ibrox, they’d likely find plenty of use for the Canadian international.

He has a consistency to his game that makes him a perfect option too and, as noted by Lee Clark, his energy and fitness would really freshen up a dull Rangers midfield.

It’s a deal that they must get over the line.
