With Rangers going through their final preparations for the opening competitive game of the 2018/19 season on Thursday, one new arrival at Ibrox is exciting supporters more than the others – midfielder Scott Arfield.
Supporters got the chance to see Steven Gerrard’s Rangers in action for the first time on Friday night, with more than 40,000 fans rushing to Ibrox to see the side in friendly against against English lower league side Bury.
It will not prove to be the toughest test of the summer, but the 6-0 thrashing has certainly maintained the feeling of positive momentum for the Gers and given fans a glimpse of what the many new signings will bring to the club.
Arfield scored a double on the evening and excelled in midfield generally, producing the kind of industrious display that has become his trademark over the last decade.
Now some fans reckon he could be the signing of the season, believing he has what it takes to be the club’s outstanding talent in the coming campaign.
All attention now turns to Thursday’s fixture against FK Shkupi. Can the Gers rack up another big win?
These supporters took to Twitter after Friday night to share their thoughts on Arfield’s potential in a Rangers shirt…
Arfield seems like everything I wanted Dorrans to be

Buzzing to see what Scott Arfield can bring to the season, looked like a fantastic player also bagging 2 goals against Bury.
