Chris Jack fires 'unforgiving' Todd Cantwell warning after Rangers January switch
The Herald’s Chris Jack has suggested playing for Rangers is a “very different prospect” for Todd Cantwell despite the former Norwich man making a positive early impression at Ibrox.
The 24-year-old has been eased into proceedings by Michael Beale after completing his January switch from the Championship club.
Jack has since suggested the “unforgiving” nature of the Scottish giants will be unlike anything the attacking midfielder has experienced before.
“Rangers is a club where the demands are incessant and the pressures unforgiving,” wrote Jack (The Herald, 16 February).
“For all that Cantwell achieved at Norwich, life here is a very different prospect and players with more established reputations than him have failed to live up to the expectations.”

The pressure and demands of Rangers are there for all to see, however, his quality should be a level above the Scottish Premiership. He was an accomplished Premier League player just over a year ago and could prove to be far too good for a number of the teams he will come up against during his time at Ibrox.
Furthermore, under Beale, the 24-year-old will be rejuvenated. He needed to move on from the Championship club, with his time at Carrow Road reaching its natural conclusion.
Cantwell will be desperate to feature in the cup final against Celtic. Old Firm games would’ve played a big part in his decision to move to Scotland and the fixture on 26 February could well see the former Norwich man makes his first appearance against the Gers’ fierce rivals.
The attacking midfielder will be looking to add to his one assist this weekend when the Light Blues travel to Livingston in the Scottish Premiership.
