Rangers star Scott Arfield branded Nathan Patterson a ‘dafty’ after leaving him red-faced during training on Wednesday.

In a surprise treat for supporters, the Gers released a six-minute video at 18:00 from the final pre-Sparta Prague session.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst and his staff were the focus of much of the content, with the new manager and Roy Makaay both joining in for some of the drills.

Aside from some slick passing from the new boss, one of the highlights of the footage came from a rondo featuring only players.


The video cuts to the group when Patterson and Jack Simpson are in the middle and shows a moment to forget for the former.

When the high-quality round that followed eventually came to an end, Arfield looked towards the camera and shouted while pointing between his legs “I hope you’ve got that Andy! Got that Nathan Patterson – dafty!”

It was a brief light-hearted moment from an otherwise relatively intense-looking session ahead of a massive European tie.

Arfield will be hoping to retain his spot in the starting XI after scoring in the defeat to Hibs at Hampden on Sunday and plenty of fans have already made their feelings about Patterson clear ahead of the game.
