Gordon Dalziel and Kenny Miller have both wore the Rangers jersey and bore the brunt of its responsibility.

Selfish' Rangers star'plays for himself' but he can still fire Ibrox club to the title

Despite contributing in separate eras, the two strikers who played at Ibrox were entrusted with finding the back of the net.

The two required the proper support to accomplish this successfully, and there were plenty of inventive names to support their Rangers prospects.

However, Dalziel and Miller concur that Todd Cantwell, a great player for the Rangers, needs to do more to help the Ibrox team succeed.

It features both of the former Rangers players gushing over Cantwell’s double-assist effort that won the game at Hampden against Hearts.

’Selfish’ Cantwell had ‘best game for Rangers’ v Hearts


It’s safe to assume that Gordon Dalziel has conflicting feelings towards Todd Cantwell.

Although he isn’t usually the offensive midfielder’s greatest fan, the 26-year-old stole the show against Hearts, according to the former Rangers striker, who spoke with Clyde Superscoreboard.

The former Rangers striker, who gives Cantwell “all the credit in the world,” says it’s a difference from his sometimes “selfish” displays at Ibrox.

Dalziel stated, “I felt Cantwell was the best player on the pitch against Hearts.” I’m not always a huge admirer of his. I believe he acts in self-interest.

“He adopts postures that would make you extremely, really irritated with him if you were playing with him.

He has supporters since everything revolves around him, but I have to admit that I found him to be (amazing).


“I am aware that the goal scorer was named Man of the Match, but Cantwell was outstanding.” I stated as much in the beginning.

“I didn’t understand why Hearts didn’t make an effort to block the balls from entering him. He was gaining some excellent situations while playing in between the defenders and the midfield.

“He set up Dessers for both goals, and I’m going to give him all the credit in the world because I thought his effort rate for the team was excellent.

“For me, it was probably his best game wearing a Rangers jersey.”


’Influential’ Cantwell urged to be Rangers difference-maker


Alongside Gordon Dalziel as a co-pundit on Clyde, Kenny Miller repeated the criticism of Rangers star Todd Cantwell.

Miller asserted that Hearts never managed to contain the midfield player and said that Cantwell “got the run of Hampden” during Rangers’ 2-0 Scottish Cup triumph.

The Rangers playmaker assisted both goals, but Cyriel Dessers’ lethal double took centre stage.

Todd Cantwell, the former striker for the Rangers, has now been challenged by Miller to do this more reliably and lead the Ibrox squad to victory in the last six games.

Miller remarked, “Listen, sometimes things come together.” “After three minutes, it was evident to me that Cantwell was taking up excessive space at the game, where I was present.”

“It is somewhat surprising that Steven Naismith never made the necessary adjustments to stop it, as Cantwell must have had the ball in that area of the pitch fifteen times, driving it.

“I truly believed that he was, there’s no denying that he was the most important player on the pitch.

“I thought Todd Cantwell could have done more in those situations with what he had.”

For me, it’s between him and Balogun; they are the two finest players in addition to the goal scorer, of course.

The most important player was Todd Cantwell, who not only scored two goals but also created two others. Hearts couldn’t stop him, which made him a continuous danger.

“They made an unsuccessful attempt to put pressure on the centre backs by pushing Jorge Grant up next to Shankland.

“Lundstram was left for Devin and Baningime to handle, while Diomande and Cantwell had free reign over Hampden, which he exploited to the fullest.”

“What he must do is keep it up to date. It has been consistency, not only with Todd Cantwell but with many other players on the Rangers squad.

It’s imperative that he be the one at this point in the season.

“He’s the one person you believe should be that player when you’re thinking about creative players that maybe don’t create enough opportunities.

“Maybe he’s a player who comes into his own at this stage of the season because he finished the season really strong around this time last year.”

Todd Cantwell signed a £1.5 million contract with Rangers from Norwich City in January 2023. Since then, he has made 59 appearances for the team, contributing 12 goals and 11 assists.

Is it now the midfielder’s turn to take the pitch and lead the Ibrox team to championship glory?
