SCOTT ARFIELD was thrilled to take his goal tally for the season to five after his fine double against Motherwell at Ibrox.

The midfielder opened the scoring against the Steelmen on eight minutes when he controlled an excellent pass from James Tavernier before beating Trevor Carson with a cool finish.

And Scott was again on target in the second half when he scored Rangers’ fifth goal with a curling left foot shot with 61 minutes on the clock.

Speaking to RangersTV post-match, the 30-year-old Canadian international said: “Me and Tav kind of see the opportunities that arise.

Tav has got the delivery and the ability to play the passes. He’s played it perfectly for me, I took a good touch and thankfully it has gone in.

“I think the game, we owed them one so to speak, when they scored in the last minute [at Fir Park in August].

“We know when we get teams here it’s going to be completely different game. We can dominate the ball and what we do at Ibrox, we need to do that more professionally when we go away from home and be diligent within our work.

“We did it last week at St Mirren and we nearly done it at Spartak, a couple of dodgy goals took it away from us. But going forward we are a force and on a special day like this for all the fans to come, it’s a magnificent day for everybody.

“The sending off kind of makes it a little bit easier but you can only beat what’s in front of you and with a 7-1, nobody remembers the performance, they remember the high intensity and that we got seven goals and put smiles on plenty of people’s faces.”
