Rangers star Sean Goss has revealed that his former Manchester United teammate Paul Scholes is the person who helped him to become the player he is today when it comes to set-pieces.
The QPR loanee only arrived at Ibrox early in the January transfer window and scored his first goal for the Light Blues in the home defeat to Hibernian – curling in a sublime free-kick effort.
Speaking in The Scottish Sun, the 22-year-old revealed that it was the one-on-one sessions with former Red Devils legend Paul Scholes which helped to develop his skills on dead-ball situations.
He said: “It was a pleasure to train with Paul. There were a few times in my early period at United where I was in rehab and he was at the same stage.
“We’d have a few sessions just doing ball work then progressing on. His technique was unbelievable.
“All the senior pros at United were great. There’s a tight bond between the first team and youth players, they want to help you out.
“Paul gave us a bit of a head start as well, because he was our Under-19s manager for the Champions League too. I’d try to copy him and also David Beckham when I was really young.
“I’d go out after training to practise my free kicks.”
After wowing fans in the club’s trip to Florida, Goss has taken his form back into action in the Scottish Premier League where he became an instant hit in front of the Ibrox faithful, following the Gers’ 2-0 win over Aberdeen back when the league resumed.
It is likely the 22-year-old will be part of Graeme Murty’s side to head to Ayr United on Sunday as the club attempt to end a number of years in the footballing wilderness by winning the Scottish Cup.
