Rangers star Scott Arfield has won Burnley’s ‘Goal of the Decade’ for a ‘special’ strike against Lancashire rivals Blackburn Rovers.

Clarets fans have been voting since the end of the year and it is the Canadian skipper’s goal that has come out on top, with 26% of the vote going his way.

After a David Jones free-kick wasn’t properly cleared, Ben Mee found Arfield who, despite plenty of bodies between him and the target, fired the ball expertly into the net to seal a 1-0 win.

Steven Defour’s strike against Manchester United came a very close second with 24% but Arfield’s winner over Rovers just pipped it.

The Rangers star’s goal came in what was a “momentous” season for the Clarets after relegation from the Premier League but Sean Dyche’s men turned things around quickly and won an immediate return by lifting the Championship title.

Since arriving at Ibrox from Burnley on a free transfer in 2018, Arfield has scored some vital goals for Steven Gerrard’s side and the midfielder could be set for a run of games with Ryan Jack looking at a fortnight on the sidelines.

Arfield will likely start against Ross County tomorrow at Ibrox and will be hoping to get the Gers back on track after defeat to Hearts dented their title ambitions.
