Could Nicky Law be Stuart McCall's most important player at Rangers?

Rangers FC

Nicky Law has been reunited with his former Motherwell boss Stuart McCall at Rangers.

Rangers confirmed the appointment of Stuart McCall as their new manager on Thursday, giving the former Motherwell boss a return to football - and a return to Ibrox.

McCall, 50, played over 250 games for Rangers as a midfielder during the 1990's, and is now reunited with a club where he is still highly thought of.

McCall is also reunited with midfielder Nicky Law at Ibrox, having managed the 26-year-old at Bradford City and at Motherwell - so could the Englishman be McCall's key player now?

Law can play as a winger or as an attacking midfielder, and McCall will be keen to get the best out of him having had so much success together previously.

Under McCall at Bradford, Law hit five goals in 45 games during two loan spells at Valley Parade, before McCall brought him to Motherwell in the summer of 2011.

In two years at Fir Park, Law bagged 13 goals in 86 games, becoming a key played for McCall before leaving for Rangers in 2013.

Already Rangers' top scorer with seven goals this season, Law can now expect to be the focal point of the Rangers side under McCall - especially after these comments from the new Rangers boss on the club's official website.

"I know there is more to come from Nicky Law; I know he is the top goal scorer but he can certainly do more and he knows that," said McCall.

"He looks inhibited and he is in his shadow but he showed in training on Thursday in two or three flashes of what he is capable of and that is what we want him to go and do. He’s gone past people like he can do, I don’t want him getting the ball and playing safe but it takes courage, especially when you have fans there that aren’t happy with recent results," he added.

Under McCall's tutelage once again, Law could be on the verge of his best football for Rangers yet - and that's something fans should be excited about.
