Rangers might be sitting at the top of the table and playing with confidence, however it seems they will not be getting ahead of themselves any time soon.
The Light Blues are leading things in both the Scottish Premiership and their Europa League group after sealing an impressive win against Standard Liege. Bettors can look to find all the best potential odds on the Glaswegians being successful this season by visiting https://www.online-betting.org/at/ as they will be made aware of all the best bookmaker offers available.
However, the approach remains very much the same, as Scott Arfield has revealed the club will continue to chase the others, rather than them being chased.
The Canada international has admitted that it is important for his side to keep their feet on the ground – something that Steven Gerrard is keen for his players to as well – and that the season is still in its infancy.
However, he has also revealed that there is no mental shift as they still have the same hunger as they would have if they were the chaser.
Arfield revealed to The Daily Record: “We can’t get too high, and certainly can’t get too low when things don’t go for us. We are in a good place, mentally and physically, and playing good, fluid football.
“The bigger picture is to be successful come the end of the season. The mentality is always the same, whether you are in front or chasing. Nothing changes for us.
“If you watch the football we’ve played, all the way through pre-season, we’ve taken it in to league and cup competitions, I don’t really think we’re going to come unstuck at the minute. We’re playing fantastic football and everyone is full of confidence. The mentality is always the same at this club.”
In addition to the great start, there is a confidence that the squad can keep things at the level they are playing at the moment as they have a number of great options available in all areas of the pitch.
Arfield said: “It was a good result, but it was only the first night in a big competition for us.
“We’ve started strongly, away from home with two goals and a clean sheet. You can’t do much better than that, but you need to back it up next week against Poznan and then against Benfica. We’ve started well but we’re always striving for more.
“The strength in depth is fantastic for us at the minute. As players you want options to come off the bench when games are not quite going for you. You want players who are hungry. We have that all over the pitch now because of the strength in depth. Long may it continue.”
Indeed, should they be able to keep things going as well as they are at the moment, Gerrard could be lifting his first piece of silverware as a manager whilst putting himself into Ibrox folklore.
