‘Absolutely Terrific’ – Jeff Stelling Blown Away by What Rangers Star Has Done

Jeff Stelling expressed his astonishment at the exceptional clean sheet record of Rangers’ goalkeeper, Jack Butland, during the current season. Stelling, caught off guard by the statistics, hailed Butland’s impressive performance on air.

“I didn’t realize how good his record was,” admitted Stelling during the show. “19 clean sheets in 37 games.”

The sentiment was echoed by former Rangers player and current talkSPORT co-host Ally McCoist, who described Butland as “absolutely terrific” for the Glasgow-based club. McCoist went on to declare Butland as “one of the best signings Rangers have made in years,” emphasizing the impact the 30-year-old has had since his transfer from Crystal Palace last summer.

The praise continued as Stelling speculated on Butland’s improvement over the years. “I think it’s probably fair to say, and I haven’t seen him much this season, but from what you tell me, he’s probably a better keeper now than when he won his last England cap in 2018,” Stelling remarked. “He’s matured, and you can hear from talking to him what a very mature attitude he has, so good luck to him.”

Butland’s journey to Rangers was fueled by the desire for regular first-team football after spending several years on the bench at Crystal Palace and a loan spell at Manchester United last season. The move to Ibrox has proven to be a career-defining opportunity for the English goalkeeper, exceeding expectations and establishing him as a standout performer for the Light Blues this season.
