Joe Worrall of Rangers looks on prior to the UEFA Europa League Group G match between Rangers and SK Rapid Wien at Ibrox Stadium on October 4, 2018 in Glasgow, United Kingdom.

The on-loan Rangers defender Joe Worrall has been likened to Colin Hendry - one of his predecessors at Ibrox - by a former colleague.

Christian Doidge, who played with Worrall at Dagenham & Redbridge, made the comment in response to an Instagram post made by the Nottingham Forest-owned player after Rangers' 3-1 win against Rapid Vienna at Ibrox on Thursday. But Worrall replied that he was "fuming with that shout".

Rangers paid £4 million for Hendry, who helped a Gers side then managed by Dick Advocaat to a domestic treble in 1998-99.

But the former Scotland captain was sold Coventry City the following campaign, having entered the twilight of his career, and later turned out for Preston North End, Blackpool and Bolton Wanderers - Doidge's current club.
