There was plenty of concern on Thursday evening when Rangers confirmed that on-loan Nottingham Forest centre-half Joe Worrall would make his debut in the game against Villarreal.

Having come in over the summer, everyone knows that the 21-year-old England youth international is incredibly highly rated and he has good experience with over 50 appearances to his name at his parent club in the English second tier, but it was a hell of a game for manager Steven Gerrard to throw him into.

Many thought it might be too deep a game to ask him to swim in but come the fulltime whistle, fans were raving about his showing as he was in the mix for Man of the Match after his efforts.

Having performed like that in such a game, carrying the magnitude it did given our absence from the Group stages of the Europa League in recent years, well, it’s a credit to the mental strength of the lad himself and it’s not like Valencia are walkovers.

The kid clearly has a future and plenty want it to be with us.
