Rangers

Frank McAvennie has been amazed by the transformation of four Rangers midfielders.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the Celtic legend has been hugely impressed at how Steven Gerrard and Gary McAllister have guided the “drastic improvements” of the quartet.

Gerrard and McAllister both enjoyed successful careers as midfielders and they played together as Liverpool won the FA Cup in 2001.

They both have several major honours to their names after glittering careers and it is no coincidence that there are currently some excellent midfielders at Ibrox.

Glen Kamara, Joe Aribo and Steven Davis have had especially impressive seasons as the Gers marched to their 55th Scottish Premiership title.

McAvennie claims there is no one better for the Rangers’ midfielders to learn from and this explains the improvement we have seen this season.

“If you can’t learn off Steven Gerrard and Gary McAllister you are doing something wrong,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“They are two of the best midfielders to ever grace the game, especially the British game. You’re clearly not watching them in training if you’re not learning.

“They are the boys who will teach the midfield players, like Kamara, [Ryan] Jack, Aribo and [Ryan] Kent to an extent, they’ve all shown drastic improvements. 

“That’s clearly what they’re doing because those midfield boys are so confident in what they’re doing this season.”

Rangers have the chance to go the full league season unbeaten as they sit just three games away from achieving a so-called ‘invincible’ campaign.

Celtic, Livingston and Aberdeen stand in Gerrard’s way as he chases the unbeaten record while St Johnstone await this weekend as Rangers look to progress in the Scottish Cup.
