BBC Pundit Stunned by Under-Fire Rangers Man in Win vs Kilmarnock

Cyriel Dessers showcased his brilliance as he delivered a game-changing assist, unlocking Kilmarnock and setting up Ross McCausland for the lead, earning high praise from former Gers striker Billy Dodds.

Commenting on the live BBC Sportsound broadcast on January 2, Dodds lauded Dessers for his pivotal role in the 41st-minute breakthrough. As Rangers faced a momentary dip in dominance and relied on Jack Butland’s save to thwart Kyle Vassell, Dessers seized the opportunity near the halfway line. His precise through-ball dissected the visiting backline, presenting McCausland with the perfect chance to race onto the ball and convert.

Dodds remarked, “The inexperience of David Watson got caught out there. It’s a brilliant pass from Cyriel Dessers. Ross McCausland showed maturity beyond his years to wait for the goalkeeper and buried it in the corner.”

While Dessers has faced criticism for a lack of end product since his summer arrival, his instrumental assist at Ibrox silenced any detractors. The Nigerian international’s impeccable timing not only led to the opening goal but also allowed Rangers to quash growing resistance from Kilmarnock.

The game-changing moment came just as Rangers seemed to be losing their grip on the match, with Abdallah Sima adding a stunning second goal soon after. This sequence of events put the home side well in control, turning the tide just when it appeared the game might slip away from them.

Despite previous criticisms, Dessers’ brilliance on the field at Ibrox demonstrated his ability to play a crucial role in securing victories for Rangers, leaving fans optimistic about his future contributions to the team.
