Former Rangers player Greg Stewart scored a stunning free-kick for Indian Super League side Jamshedpur FC against fellow title hopefuls Kerala Blasters in a 1-1 draw.
Stewart, who signed for the Indian team on a one-year deal in September, has enjoyed life so far at Jamshedpur.
He has scored five goals and registered four assists in the first eight matches of the Indian Super League campaign [SofaScore], excellent form for a player who arguably wasn’t given enough game time to really show his true potential at Rangers.
After scoring a delightful hattrick against Odisha in just a sixth start for his new club, many Rangers fans lauded the performance on Twitter.
Jamshedpur took the lead through the brilliant freekick, which was scored from 34 metres and cracked in off the post leaving the keeper with no chance before Kerala Blasters equalised 13 minutes later.
Stewart was also booked during the match, but it didn’t take the shine off his wonderful goal and the former Rangers player looks settled in India and playing the best football he has played in a long time.
Steven Gerrard signed the 31-year-old on a free transfer after his contract at Birmingham City expired in the summer of 2019. Although featuring 16 times in the league and scoring three goals, Stewart only made three league starts and his contribution dipped heavily during his second season.
With Rangers strolling to the title, the forward only featured in five matches and registered one assist, this was enough for him to earn a winners medal at the end of the glorious campaign, and he moved on with good wishes from the Rangers faithful.
It looks like he is thoroughly enjoying life in the Indian Super League.
