Why Scott Arfield Will Instantly Make Rangers Better

Why Scott Arfield Will Instantly Make Rangers Better

Scott Arfield looks like he’s on the verge of signing for Rangers this summer – but why are the Ibrox club in for him?

The Scottish midfielder has been in England since leaving Falkirk for Huddersfield back in 2010, but his time there shows he can be a big signing for Rangers.

He made 119 appearances for Huddersfield before leaving them and joining Burnley, where he spent five years, helping them to the best spell in the club’s history.

Now that Arfield is likely to join Rangers and end his time in England, we look at why he could make the team instantly better:

His Experience

Arfield knows all about the Scottish Premiership from his time at Falkirk, spending three seasons as a top-flight player before leaving for Huddersfield. Then, with the Terriers, he had two campaigns in League One before earning promotion to the Championship and, despite being released by them, he went on to become a star player in that league with Burnley. Two promotions to the Premier League later and he’s arriving at Rangers as a player of significant caliber, having scored 22 goals in 194 total appearances for Sean Dyche’s men.

He Can Play a Number of Positions

Some may expect Arfield to arrive as a wideman on either side considering that’s where he’s played most for Burnley, but he’s really a central midfielder and you’d expect him to appear there most for Rangers. Added to that, he can operate at either full back so Rangers are getting a versatile player – and that’s always a big help for managers.
