Arthur Numan raves about these three current Rangers stars after beating Hibernian

Rangers trio Jason Holt, Barrie McKay and Martyn Waghorn have been praised by Arthur Numan.

Former Rangers star Arthur Numan has told The Scottish Sun that he was impressed with Jason Holt, Barrie McKay and Martyn Waghorn's performances against Hibernian.

Rangers went into the match against Hibs on Monday - biggest game of the season so far - having only picked up eight points from the previous six games, with fans starting to feel a little nervous about their title aspirations.

However, Mark Warburton's men hit back in style, as two goals from Jason Holt, as well as later strikes from Nicky Clark and Martyn Waghorn, handed Rangers a convincing 4-2 win over their title rivals at Ibrox.

Fans went home happy from the game, and so did a former Rangers star who had returned to Glasgow in order to watch the match.


Ex-Rangers left back Arthur Numan played well over 100 times for the Gers having signed from PSV Eindhoven back in 1998, and he went on to win three Scottish Premiership titles, four Scottish Cups and three Scottish League Cups in a trophy-laden spell at Ibrox.

The Dutchman, who currently works for AZ Alkmaar as a scout, came back to Glasgow on Monday to watch his former club in action, and has admitted that three players caught his eye.

Speaking to The Scottish Sun, Numan singled out playmaker Jason Holt, winger Barrie McKay and striker Martyn Waghorn for praise, citing just how important they are to Warburton's team.

"Jason Holt burst forward well several times to support the attackers and scored two goals," said Numan. "Barrie McKay is full of confidence and he is an important player. Martyn Waghorn worked very hard, and as well as being a goal threat does a lot of unselfish work," he added

Rangers fans will have been impressed too, and now have to hope that Numan doesn't go back to AZ and try to lure any of them to the Eredivisie!
