Moment Rangers star signs off at training with one last signature move and fans can’t handle it
RANGERS fans will miss Scott Arfield’s passion, eye for goal and commitment to the club.
But most of all, they might miss his anniversary celebration — and he gave them one last look at it.
Arfield is one of several Rangers players who will not sign new contracts for next season.
Allan McGregor, Alfredo Morelos, Filip Helander and Ryan Kent will also leave the club and all five were honored at the Light Blues’ final home game of the season against Hearts this week.
The quintet received a guard of honor at the Ibrox in front of the home fans, all five of whom knew they might never come back.
Arfield hopes to return “in a way” one day, but for now he’s hoping to keep playing.
He said: “I will hopefully be back with this club in some capacity in the future.”
“I’m open to everything, I want to be happy.
“I want to keep playing. When I was 16 I said I wanted to keep playing until I was 40 and that hasn’t changed.”
He showed he still has what it takes with an impressive performance in training which the Rangers team caught on camera – followed by his iconic salute cheer.
The Light Blues side are preparing for the final opener of their Premiership season, a trip to Paisley to take on St Mirren.
At the end of the training session, the players faced the challenge of scoring a goal blocked by another goal.
Arfield stood up to show everyone how it’s done.
The 34-year-old shot the ball perfectly over the first goal, hit the opponent’s goal and then spun away jubilantly as his team-mates chased him.
He ran straight for the media team’s cameras and made sure to perform his trademark salute one last time.
Fans couldn’t take it in the comments, and after seeing the video footage on Twitter, there was a mix of emotions.
One said: “I’m disappointed he’s leaving. I wanted him to get another year or so, but all the best to him. A final shout out to you Scotty, thanks for the memories.”
Many fans said they were “saluting again,” as this person summarized, “Everybody’s greeting again. Such a character contributes to the team spirit.”
“Damn, I’m going to miss this celebration so much,” came another reply.
“I love Arfield. I lived the dream and won a championship title. Thank you for the memories. Greetings,” said another.
While this supporter replied, “I’m not emotionally ready for this.”
Many fans asked a similar question to this player, who said, “Give him another year.”
