Rangers centre-half Joe Worrall has revealed that he has enjoyed working with his Gers team-mates Gareth McAuley and Connor Goldson, and highlighted the camaraderie with the rest of the squad off the pitch.

It was unclear how regularly Worrall would feature when he moves to Ibrox, given the fierce competition for places in defence, but Steven Gerrard has given him game time.

The 22-year old, on loan from Nottingham Forest, has played an important role for the Gers so far this season, having started nine times for the club in the league.

Worrall pointed out that he has a good understanding with his fellow centre-backs and shares an excellent rapport with the rest of his team-mates, both on and off the pitch.

“They are both experienced players. Gareth more so, he’s obviously been around the block so he’s like a father figure”, Worrall told Rangers TV of McAuley and Goldson.

“Connor’s a good player. They are both good lads and there are players all across the pitch that I’ve got relationships with.

“Obviously fans don’t see that off the pitch, but on the pitch definitely you can link up with different players, get a partnership and get into the swing of things.

“Off the pitch, everyone’s great.

"We all have a good crack and I’m enjoying it."

The Gers are currently preparing for the second half of the season at a warm weather training camp in Tenerife.

Gerrard’s side are level on points with Celtic in the Scottish Premiership table and will hope to keep up with the Hoops when the league resumes in the penultimate week of January.
