Alan Hutton backs rarely seen Rangers ace who 'could make a lot of teams better' for success elsewhere

Rangers utility man Matt Polster “could make a lot of teams better” if he moves to another side in Scotland this month, according to Alan Hutton.

As per a report from the Scottish Sun, it is understood that the American is eager to continue his stay in the Scottish Premiership off he leaves Ibrox in the coming weeks, as opposed to returning back to his home country.

And Hutton believes that could prove to be a wise decision.

Speaking to Football Insider, he said: “I understand where he is coming from that he doesn’t want to go home just yet, he’s probably enjoying being over in Scotland in that league, so I see why he’d want to stay and try to break into a team there

“So I don’t see why not, he looks a good player despite us not getting to see much, but from what I’ve seen he looks decent.

“Composed on the ball and things, and I don’t see why another Scottish team wouldn’t want to take a punt with him and bring him in.

“I think he could make a lot of teams better.”

Should Polster stay in Scotland?

There’s no reason why he shouldn’t.

After all, he has struggled to make an impact at Rangers this term, but by no means does that suggest that he’s a bad player.

Whether it’s a right-back – where he would have to compete with James Tavernier – or in a midfield three – currently dominated by Ryan Jack, Glen Kamara, and Steven Davis – competition for places is sky high at the moment, and Polster would have to be playing out of his skin to usurp any of those talents.

In that respect, he faces something of a catch-22, because he can’t play out of his skin if he’s watching from the stands.

It’s a vicious circle, but at a club with slightly less lofty ambitions, there’s no reason why he wouldn’t thrive in Scotland.
