Ex-Rangers star makes winning return to MLS side after brutal head knock

Former Rangers star Matt Polster has returned to action for MLS side New England Revolution after a worrying head knock sustained last month.

The versatile defensive midfielder made his return to action from the bench as his new side defeated Ronny Deila’s New York City FC 2-1.

There were real fears for Polster, 27, after he was end of a nasty knock as D.C. United star Yordy Reyna caught him in the head with a stray heel back on September 28th.

After recovering from the nasty knock, likeable American international Polster took to Twitter to reveal he’d been diagnosed with a “concussion”.

The ex-Chicago Fire man described the incident as a “scary moment”, thanking the medical staff for taking care of him and congratulating his teammates for securing a 2-0 win.

The likeable former Ibrox midfielder’s return to the New England Revolution side will come as a major boost to manager Bruce Arena and a relief to Polster himself.

The player had been settling into life in New England very well prior to the incident with his performances earning good reviews from the Revolution’s supporters.

The only real blot on Polster’s copybook came against Philadelphia Union where the player picked up an unfortunate red card in a 2-1 defeat.
