Matt Polster picks out his most influential team-mate

Rangers new boy Matt Polster has picked out Bastian Schweinsteiger as his most influential team-mate in his career following his move to Ibrox.

Despite Basti’s arrival pushing Polster into a full-back role, he thinks the German helped improve the MLS side.
“Probably my most influential team-mate, so far, has been Bastian Schweinsteiger,” Polster told the
Sunday Post.
“His understanding of the game helped us progress.

“We struggled in 2016, but when he came to Chicago in 2017, we won a lot more games.”

Polster has 83 MLS appearances and made his international debut for the US last year.
The 25-year-old is comfortable in central midfield or at right-back and will give manager Steven Gerrard a number of options.

It’s no surprise to see him pick out Schweisteiger as his most influential team-mate.
The German icon has had a big impact in Chicago since his move across the Atlantic in 2017.
Polster will be hoping he can put some of what he learned into practice in Scotland.

With another iconic midfielder now working as his club manager, there is plenty of opportunities for the American to learn.
It likely won’t be too long before we see Polster make his Gers debut – and hopefully he can have a massive impact in Glasgow.
