A fortnight ago, two Rangers players linked up to outstanding effect to defeat Motherwell at Fir Park.
Scott Arfield and Jermain Defoe.
After all, many thought £1.8m-rated Defoe [
Even if that weren’t to be the case, at that time, the £2.25m-rated Arfield [
However, things have changed significantly since then. It’s clear that Steven Gerrard wants to play with one main striker rather than two.
Furthermore, Arfield has been shifted up the field, now playing off the striker.
More to come from £4m duo next season?
It remains to be seen whether or not Alfredo Morelos stays at Rangers this summer. We also don’t know what reinforcements the club will bring in and in which specific positions.
Come what may, when these two players get a chance to line up alongside each other with a clean slate next season, they could wreak havoc amongst SPL defences.
With a full pre-season behind him, Defoe should be razor sharp. Likewise, Arfield, for whom the summer will offer a chance to finally get over a niggling calf problem, should be able to hit top form.
Both players have had time to settle in and get used to the ways things are at Rangers. They will be keen to see out this campaign strongly, and after the summer, look to play significant roles in bringing silverware back to Ibrox.
