Rangers star Scott Arfield insists it is a “good time” to be playing for the Gers as he lauded the strength in depth Steven Gerrard’s squad have this season.

Arfield has started the last nine games after injuries to Ryan Jack Joe Aribo and admits that nobody is spitting their dummy out over not being selected.

The Canadian international is adamant that he wants to keep his place in the side after a run of impressive performances and wants to play in every game.

“It’s a good time to be playing in this team. Since pre-season, we have been strong,” Arfield said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.

“The players have been hitting form at the right times.

“Ryan Jack and Joe Aribo picked up injuries earlier on.


“Joe was out for some time, so once you get the jersey you want to keep it.

“It speaks volumes for the character and the strength in depth of this squad.


“If someone comes in, I don’t think the team gets damaged much by that person coming in.

“No matter what stage of your career, you want to play every game. But at no point do you ever spit your dummy out.

“I’ve played with a few players who do it the wrong way and that’s not in my make-up. I don’t see many players doing it the wrong way here.”

The Rangers star seems likely to keep his place in the side for tomorrow’s Premiership clash with Livingston at Ibrox as the Gers look to maintain their lead at the top of the table.

Arfield has added something different to the Gers midfield since coming back into the side and it is hard to see how Gerrard could drop him given his recent form.
