Dujon Sterling Set for More Rangers Chancesas Phillipe Clement Applauds Impactful Performances

Rangers’ defender, Dujon Sterling, is poised to see an increased role in the team after leaving a lasting impression on manager Phillipe Clement with his recent standout performances. Despite having only two Premiership appearances, both absent under Clement, the 24-year-old’s versatility and commitment have caught the manager’s eye, prompting predictions of more playing time in the coming weeks.

Sterling’s recent cameos have showcased his adaptability and effectiveness on the field. Initially given just five minutes at full-back against St Mirren, he seized the opportunity and later enjoyed an extended run in his natural position against Hearts, albeit on the opposite side. The Englishman’s true test came when he was summoned to play in the center of midfield during a challenging match against Dundee, where he played a crucial role in helping the team secure victory with ten men after Jose Cifuentes’ dismissal.

Manager Phillipe Clement expressed his admiration for Sterling’s performance, particularly in an unfamiliar role in the center of midfield. Speaking to Rangers TV, Clement commended Sterling’s dedication and versatility, stating, “He played a really good game in a position he never plays. But I see what I see in training, he is working hard.” The manager’s comments reflect not only the player’s adaptability but also his determination to contribute positively to the team.

Highlighting Sterling’s diverse skill set, Clement emphasized that the 24-year-old is not limited to a single position on the field. “He can play right full-back and he can also play as a winger,” the manager added. Clement sees Sterling’s willingness to contribute in various roles as a significant asset for the team. The manager concluded by stating, “If he keeps pushing like that then he will get more minutes in the next couple of weeks, that’s clear because he deserves it.”
