Scott Arfield made a massive contribution to Rangers’ big win over St Johnstone on Sunday and fans have been left in no doubt exactly why he was brought to Ibrox this summer.
Arfield arrived on a free transfer shortly after Steven Gerrard was announced as the new manager and has been an integral part of the side’s excellent summer and autumn so far.
After netting his first goal for the club on Thursday night against Villarreal, he was again on the scoresheet in yesterday’s Scottish Premiership clash, also chipping in with two assists.
It was an all-round midfielder performance to be proud of and we are hopefully in the early stages of a prolonged period of form from the former Burnley and Falkirk man.
At 29 years of age, he’s hitting the prime of his midfield career and has the brilliant combination of experience and enough playing days ahead of him to be relied upon in the long-term.
These fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his Sunday performance…
I’d say that was Arfield’s best game.

Scott Arfield has been utterly brilliant in the last three games. Could possibly be seeing the start of something special out of him this season.

Arfield. Goal and two assists speaks for itself. Guy did not stop today. So many 10/10 performances though.
Well done rangers. Starting to gather momentum????????.

Back from the game . What a performance, ruthless aggression.
As for MOTM, so many to choose from but for me it was Arfield, just thought he did everything well.
Glad to see, as I hoped, we took advantage of the situation.

As good an attacking display for a long long time. Looked dangerous every time we went forward. Thought Kent was excellent again. Drifting off the wing and finding space. Had foster on toast. Arfield man if the match tho. Quality. ????????

My personal MOTM was probably Scott Arfield, I thought he was absolutely outstanding. Won so many second balls, particularly for his goal but throughout the second half. We’ve lacked that badly in the last few years.

If you put Arfield to score anytime every game this season you will be in profit by the end of the season! No question about it ????⚪️????#37
