Rangers news: Pundit wowed by 'sensational' Aaron Ramsey v Dundee United
Kevin Thomson was blown away by Aaron Ramsey’s play in the build-up to Rangers winning a penalty in their 2-0 win over Dundee United at Ibrox on Sunday.
Fashion Sakala won the penalty after he was brought down by goalkeeper Benjamin Siegrist but it was a superb pass into the box by Ramsey that the Zambian latched onto that won the plaudits from Thomson.
Of course, James Tavernier stepped up to take the penalty but it was Ramsey’s silky play that was on the pundit RangersTV pundit Thomson.
“It was sensational play, it really was,” said Thomson on RangersTV [8 May, 04:09pm].
“The right players are on the ball in the right areas of the pitch.
“It was a sensational wee flick from Aaron Ramsey. It’s the disguise on it and the weight on it.
“It’s brilliant and Sakala just gets there, he’s brave and is proper wiped out as well. It could have been a nasty one.”
We haven’t seen much of it from Ramsey in a Rangers shirt but that is why this player has been at Arsenal and Juventus in his career.
It was such a superb piece of skill to flick the ball into Sakala, who was completely wiped out by Siegrist.
If you get the ball in the box against teams who just clatter your players every week, you’re going to get penalties and we’re bound to hear from them lot across the city about the number of spot-kicks this season.
But there was no doubt about that one – Sakala could have been hurt.
As for Ramsey, we don’t see this enough from him.
The Juventus loanee has had an underwhelming time in Scotland in our opinion and we would not lose any sleep about him going in the summer and never coming back.
Ramsey’s on a lot of money, he’s injury prone and he doesn’t seem as invested in the club as we would have hoped.
It’s a massive shame but if he can help us to an unprecedented double of a Scottish Cup and a Europa League, then he’ll go down in history.
