'Easily the best player', 'Standout' – Fans react as Rangers 22-year-old plays blinder for country

Football fans have heaped praise on Rangers defender Declan John after Wales played Uruguay in the final of the China Cup.

The left-back joined Rangers on loan from Cardiff City in the summer of 2017 before the deal was made permanent in January.

And one fan can’t believe that Cardiff let him leave after his two performances for Wales, including the 6-0 demolition of China.

One Rangers fan joked that selling Declan John was the best decision Neil Warnock had ever made.

Ryan Giggs has re-introduced him to the Scotland set-up after he won his first cap in 2013, and fans are loving what he’s brought to the Welsh side.

He was substituted today after 59 minutes, after Uruguay took the lead through Edinson Cavani, but it didn’t dampen fans’ enthusiasm for him. The score remained at 1-0, with Wales unable to find an equaliser.

One fan said that John was easily the best player on the pitch for Wales today, although he was a Rangers fan!
