Paul Robinson has hailed his former teammate Scott Arfield as an “outstanding talent” who is proof of Rangers’ much-improved recruitment under Steven Gerrard.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-England goalkeeper hailed former Burnley colleague Arfield as a top performer who is brilliant to have in the dressing room.

Robinson explained why Rangers did very well in persuading the Canada international to return north of the border on a free transfer last year.

Arfield has established himself as one of the key players in Gerrard’s SPL table-toppers as they look to end Celtic’s nine-in-a-row bid this season.

“A very, very good player and with an end product as well,” Robinson told Football Insider. “Can play anywhere across midfield left or right another one – I think Steven has recruited well with finding out players’ personalities and what players are like off the field.

“Scott’s another one, he is a true person, lives right, professional, trains hard, works hard and gives everything every game.

“You know what you’re going to get with him and I think he’s got outstanding talent, good delivery from set plays, he’s lively and is always going to work hard and I think it was a very good acquisition.”

Arfield has played 63 matches for Rangers since signing from Burnley, scoring 14 goals and supplying eight assists.

He has already racked up 17 appearances this season, 15 of which have been in the starting XI.
