Former Rangers star Matt Polster has earned rave reviews for his second performance as a New England Revolution player during a 2-1 win over DC United.

The versatile 27-year-old featured mostly at right-back in his 10 appearances in Light Blue but his new manager, Bruce Arena, is giving him a run in his preferred defensive midfield role.

He played the full 90 minutes on debut against Philadelphia Union last Friday and later expressed his disappointment that his side only managed a 0-0 draw [].

Three points were picked up on the road at DC United on Wednesday, though, with first-half goals from Gustavo Bou and Teal Bunbury giving the Revolution a comfortable lead at the break.

The ex-Ger once again played the full game in midfield and despite the hosts pulling one back through an Ola Kamara penalty in the 72nd minute and Polster’s teammate Scott Caldwell picking up a late red card, Revolution held on to triumph 2-1.

It was another impressive outing for the USA international, who appears to be thriving on the extra responsibility placed on him at his new club.

After 18 months as a bit-part player at Ibrox, he’s hit the ground running as a key man for the Revolution and is earning rave reviews from their supporters.
