Derek Ferguson was awestruck by Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack after his wonder strike against Kilmarnock on Saturday afternoon.
The midfielder brought the ball down and volleyed home into the top corner when the away side started to frustrate the Bears.
Ferguson has always been a massive fan of Jack, who has recently returned to great effect since his injury over November and December.
Speaking on the Blues Brothers Podcast on Monday evening, Ferguson compared the strike to Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier.
“Jack’s goal – that’s just a thing of beauty,”
“It comes at an awkward height, and he just cushions it. A great comparison, what a striker of the ball Le Tissier was.
“It was brilliant technique, he doesn’t try to take the leather off the ball, it’s a clean strike. It was absolutely top drawer.”
Jack’s goal just screamed Steven Gerrard.
The gaffer scored plenty of those style strikes during his time with Liverpool, and he appears to have passed that technique down.
Ferguson may have compared it to Le Tissier, but surely there is more influence closer to home at Ibrox in Gerrard.
Either way, they’re great comparisons to have.
We’re used to seeing Jack have huge influences in his defending, but with these added attacking sprees to his game, he has finally become the total package.
This Bears midfield is one of the best we have seen in some time, with Glen Kamara and Steven Davis making it the perfect trio.
