Cammy Bell explains why Stuart McCall has been 'great' since his appointment

Rangers manager Stuart McCall has made a positive impression on Cammy Bell.

Rangers goalkeeper Cameron Bell has told the Daily Mail that manager Stuart McCall has been 'great' ever since his appointment.

Bell, a signing from Kilmarnock in 2013, has one Scotland cap to his name but has endured a tough season this term, having missed the majority of the season through injury.

Now back in the fold, Bell will be hoping to help Rangers to promotion through the Scottish Championship play-offs under McCall.

The new Rangers boss was appointed back in March after the departure of Kenny McDowall, and has so far lost just one of his ten games in charge.

With five wins in that spell too, McCall has made a bright start to life in the Ibrox dugout, but must now achieve his goal of winning promotion back to the top flight.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Rangers goalkeeper Bell says that McCall has been a breath of fresh air since his arrival, praising him for giving opportunities to fringe players.

"He has been great since he has come in," said Bell. "He has brought a new enthusiasm to players. It is always good when a new manager comes in. Players who haven’t been playing get an opportunity. It is a fresh start for everyone. He has been great."

"The previous manager was great with me, as well. He brought me to the club and I will always respect him for that. He was great with us, but obviously he has moved on and we have got a new manager. He has worked us hard and brought his ideas to us and the players are buying into it just now. It takes time for things to fall in place, but I think we have still got a great chance of going up this season," he added.

McCall has handed starts to youth products Robbie Crawford, Andy Murdoch, Tom Walsh and Ryan Hardie in midweek, with all four giving Rangers energy - and the quartet will be needed in the coming weeks as Rangers make their way through the play-offs.
