Rangers are yet to hit top gear this season but Todd Cantwell’s performances against Servette and Livingston suggest that there is much to be encouraged by.

The 25-year old playmaker looked rusty in pre-season but not starting against Kilmarnock on the opening day cost Michael Beale.

Never one to shy away from the limelight, Rangers number 13 enjoyed his Sunday afternoon and one result in particular in true Todd Cantwell fashion after taking to social media.

Posting on Instagram, it’s pretty clear who Cantwell is trolling.

For some members of the Light Blues faithful, they would rather that he did his talking on the pitch though.

The thing is, as he proved in Rangers last derby, Todd Cantwell can do both.

He can talk the talk and he can walk the walk.

Rangers can have best of both worlds with Todd Cantwell

Modern football is short of characters and Rangers fans haven’t seen this sort of antagonistic behaviour since Paul Gascoigne was in town, Todd Cantwell is already winding them up.

Of course, Cantwell is putting his head on the chopping block by being so obvious about who he is trying to wind up but will he care?

Not one bit, he wears his heart on his sleeve and on his Instagram profile.

Rangers can’t expect a player to be charismatic on the pitch and play the way that he does without having something about him.

Playing at such a big club demands a certain mentality and the problem here isn’t that Cantwell might be made to look stupid, it’s that his teammates won’t be able to back him up.

There is nothing that a player can say in the press or post on social media that will affect the outcome of the next game.

There are too many variables like team selections, refereeing decisions or the lucky break of a ball.

Rangers saw Todd Cantwell at his best towards the end of last season, a happy Todd is a productive Todd.

He was only posting what we were all thinking.
