RANGERS duo Steven Gerrard and Scott Arfield have claimed the Ladbrokes SPFL Manager and Player of the month awards for April.

It’s the first time a Light Blues boss has claimed the prize since the club was promoted back to the top flight in 2016 and comes after Gers made it four wins from four matches in the league last month.

The form shown by Gers in those games was sparkling, hitting 11 goals and conceding just one, with Arfield a huge part of that success.

Moved into a more attacking role, Arfield has flourished, netting once against Hearts on April 3 before following that up with a superb hat-trick at Motherwell four days later.

His performances in the following two matches, again against Hearts and then Aberdeen, were also excellent, and he becomes the first Gers player this season to claim the prize.
