Pundit Thinks £6M Rangers Player Is Now Becoming Clement’s ‘Main Man’ at Ibrox

In a recent victory for Rangers against Hearts, Philippe Clement has shown confidence in his attacking setup, consistently relying on Brazilian striker Danilo to lead the line. Despite a somewhat challenging start at Ibrox due to a facial injury sustained against St Johnstone in September, Danilo is now hitting his stride, becoming a genuine force for Rangers.

Notably, it was Danilo who won the crucial penalty leading to Rangers’ opening goal against Hearts and later provided an assist to Scott Wright for the second goal. This performance has led to increasing recognition from pundits and fans alike.

Pundit and Queen of the South boss Marvin Bartley is among those who have been closely following Danilo’s progress. Speaking to Viaplay, Bartley praised the Brazilian’s recent displays and boldly asserted that Danilo has now become the “main man” in Clement’s attacking setup.

“For me, he’s now the main man, the number nine so to speak, for Rangers,” Bartley remarked. “I think, for the first few weeks of the season, people were saying ‘Dessers or Danilo, we’re not sure who’s really going to be that top striker for them.’ I think we can see it now. His all-round game is brilliant, I think he offers something different for Rangers up front, and I think the more he plays and gets used to the league, the more goals he’ll score,” Bartley added.

Bartley’s assertion reflects the growing consensus among Rangers supporters that Danilo’s contributions are pivotal to the team’s success, as they continue their campaign for silverware in the upcoming final against Aberdeen. Danilo’s blend of skill, strength, and footballing intelligence appears to be making him an integral part of Clement’s attacking strategy, and his ability to influence matches and score goals is becoming increasingly evident as he adapts to Scottish football.
