Video: Steven Gerrard Praises Lafferty and Worrall After ‘Terrific Start’ in Spain

Steven Gerrard has praised his Rangers squad, particularly Kyle Lafferty and Joe Worrall, after claiming a creditable 2-2 draw away to Spanish cracks Villarreal.

Lafferty and midfielder Scott Arfield both scored in the second-half to hold the fifth-best team in last season’s La Liga, with centre-back Worrall making his full debut for the Ibrox club.

Claiming a point in such difficult surroundings left the supporters absolutely delighted at the full-time whistle, and their manager was pretty pleased with his side’s efforts too:

And when speaking to the written press, the Gers gaffer made reference to specific players:

Rangers were nothing short of shambolic at times last season, but Gerrard has managed to bring in a defensive organisation that has been sorely lacking – but how far can he take his team in this competition?

Can they now seriously consider making the knockout stages a realistic aim?
