There is one thing that Rangers fans can agree on about the season so far and that is that Jack Butland has, comfortably, been the best signing of the summer.

A series of fine performances have immediately endeared him to the Light Blues support and it is only a shame that the 30-year old didn’t arrive a couple of years earlier.

Writing in The Rangers Review, Chris Jack has revealed that Jack Butland’s form has been that impressive that there are feels already that he might not be at the club for long.

The biggest concern about the England international keeper arriving to replace Allan McGregor was that he has been out of regular action for a couple of seasons.

Those doubts were put to bed pretty quickly with fine displays in Europe and in the Scottish Premiership.

Rangers get it right with Jack Butland signing

In his review of Rangers transfer window, Jack picks out the signing of Jack Butland as the one to really hit the ground running but that it might be a double-edged sword.

“Butland has been the standout thus far, both in terms of the manner in which he has conducted himself and the way that he has performed.

“At 30, his best years are certainly ahead of him and there is already a belief that Rangers may have to fend off potential suitors sooner rather than later.”

Every interview that Butland has given has been impressive.

He’s not just an experienced player but has been around enough England camps and time at a big club like Man Utd to know what expectations are.

The biggest problem, is that too many of his fellow new recruits have not been able to match his immediate impact yet.
