Rangers midfielder Scott Arfield has revealed his delight at the team’s 7-1 victory over Motherwell, a win which puts the club back in contention for the Scottish Premiership title.

The Ibrox side have struggled in the past to put real daylight between themselves and defeated opponents, but Arfield, who opened the scoring and went on to add another to his name, was pleased with the way they managed to get the job done in style against ten-man Motherwell.

“I think we did similar against Hearts (last month in a 3-1 victory), particularly in the first half, it was high intensity but we came off it a wee bit in the second half…” he said, according to Daily Mail.

“Although we got the victory then we were quite disappointed in the couple of days after that, we thought we could have hit them more.”

“Thankfully we’ve done this here today. We put a statement down for everyone today. We were relentless in our intensity.”

“It’s another reward for us to keep going, to show people what we’re all about.”

Asked if the team still had thoughts of winning title, Arfield replied:

“At this football club we’re always thinking about that. It’s great to be as close as possible. Let’s see what happens.”

“This football club is built on success and tradition and that’s why I signed up – for this club to be as successful as it can be and to bring the glory days back to this club.”
