Sean Dyche Pays Tribute to Scott Arfield Ahead of Final Burnley Game

Sean Dyche Pays Tribute to Scott Arfield Ahead of Final Burnley Game

Sean Dyche has paid tribute to Scott Arfield ahead of his final game as a Burnley player tomorrow.

The Clarets manager is approaching the end of his finest season as a boss, with his side guaranteed seventh in the English Premier League and a European adventure next campaign.

With it being the final day of the season, some players will say their farewells – including Arfield, who is believed to be joining Rangers on a four-year deal as his current contract at Turf Moor will expire in the summer.

Arfield has played 194 times over five years at Burnley and will leave with the well wishes from Dyche, his teammates and the fans.

And Dyche has paid tribute to him ahead of his final game against Bournemouth.

Per burnleyfootballclub.com, Dyche said: “Scott and Deano [Marney] have been massive players for this football club. Deano before I was here and during my time and Scotty, of course, while I’ve been here.

“We wish them all the very best going forward and we’ll make a decision with them, which is important to remember, about Sunday because they’ve got careers beyond this.

“We’ve got to be careful that they are happy to be involved, or not as case they may be.

“We will be respectful and, fortunately, we are in a position to be respectful to that because of the situation we find ourselves in.”

Arfield is expected to be one of Steven Gerrard’s first signings at Ibrox as he looks to strengthen a squad that has struggled this season.

Rangers, under Pedro Caixinha, Graeme Murty and now Jonatan Johansson and Jimmy Nicholl, have never really been able to put together a consistent run of form and that’s led to their fight for second spot and poor showings in both cups.

But Arfield should be a signing that helps improve them going forward.
