Former Rangers player Matt Polster is on course to win a league title in the United States with current club New England Revolution.

Polster spent 18 months at Ibrox as a backup right-back after arriving in January 2019, making just ten appearances in all competitions.

The popular USA international was sold to the Revs in the summer of 2020 for a fee in the region of £300k [Scottish Sun] and it’s turning out to be an excellent move for him.

His new club came eighth in the Eastern Conference last season but they are transformed this year and Polster is playing a key role as a defensive midfielder.

The former Ger has featured in 24 of their 27 league fixtures to date, starting 21 of those matches.

The Revs have only lost one of their last 14, winning eleven of those, and as a result of that spectacular form, are a whopping 15 points clear at the top of the table, although most of the chasing pack have two games in hand.

The main prize in the States is the MLS Cup and the Revs will be eyeing that up after their outstanding regular season campaign comes to an end.

Yet, regardless, the Supporters’ Shield looks likely to be going to New England, given that the Revs also have 13 points more than current Western Conference leaders Sporting Kansas City, who also have two games in hand.

Polster left Ibrox before the season in which 55 was secured, but it may not be much longer before he gets his hands on the first significant silverware of his career.

Meanwhile, another former Rangers player is still showing prolific form despite missing out on an eight-figure summer transfer.
