MATT POLSTER insists he has plenty more to show to the Rangers fans after making his competitive Ibrox debut on Thursday night.

The right-back was handed a starting spot for the Europa League clash with St Joseph’s as he replaced captain James Tavernier.

It was a comfortable outing in a defensive sense for Polster as the Gibraltarians caused Rangers few problems on a night where they succumbed to a 6-0 defeat.

After Joe Aribo netted his first goal for Steven Gerrard’s side, Alfredo Morelos hit a hat-trick to give the home crowd something to cheer on a straightforward evening at the office.

And Jermain Defoe then added a shine to the scoreline as he netted a late brace after coming off the bench to replace the Colombian.

Polster had a hand in Defoe’s first goal of the night as he provided a teasing cross from the right flank that the Englishman converted with aplomb.

And the American was pleased with his efforts as he produced a solid performance and helped the Light Blues to a comprehensive Europa League victory.

Polster said: “It was an incredible experience to see the place packed and just loud! It was some moment for myself and the team and I really enjoyed the day.

“I think the pre-season really helped me. I did well throughout and it was tough, and I think it helped quite a bit today. I did well in the second half though I could have done a little bit better in the first half, though I am pleased with the performance as a group and with myself.

“I think I have done well, but I think I can improve quite a bit. It was my first match and there are things I can build off of and I can clean up some mistakes.

“But I think for my first start in my Rangers career I think I did okay. We have a couple more pre-season games, and the competition is growing more which I think is good for us going into the new season.

“I think we will have a tough first month, but the tougher the games, the better we are.”

Polster moved to Glasgow in January as he was brought on board by boss Gerrard following a successful trial stint at the Hummel Training Centre.

Gerrard had faced Polster during his time with LA Galaxy and the switch to Scotland is the first time that the 26-year-old has played outside of his homeland.

He faces a tough task to dislodge Tavernier from his right-back berth in the coming months but he is pleased with life off the park as he settles into Glasgow.

He told RangersTV: “I think I have grown as a player. It is a bit of a culture shock for me not having friends and family over here with me – but that’s not an excuse.

“I still think I can cope a little bit better with the changes, but I think I have adapted quite well and I am settled-in a lot more this season.

“The group as a whole is close and I am getting close to a lot of my teammates now.”
