TODD CANTWELL has thanked boss Michael Beale and Ibrox stalwarts James Tavernier and Connor Goldson for helping him settle into life at Rangers.

The 24-year-old made the move to Glasgow last month after leaving boyhood club Norwich to sign a long-term deal with the Scottish Cup holders.

A debut in the win over St Johnstone has been followed by outings against Hearts, Ross County and Partick Thistle and Cantwell is now in line for a place in the Viaplay Cup final clash with Celtic.

The pressure to deliver success at Ibrox can take time for some arrivals to get used to but the process has been made easier thanks to Beale's approach and the help of skipper Tavernier and vice-captain Goldson.

Cantwell said: "It was different. At Norwich, when we were in the Championship, we had that responsibility as well and we were touted to win every game, really.

"Being here and being in all the cup competitions and stuff like that, it is a bigger weight. But it is something that I personally love. I want to win games.

"They (Goldson and Tavernier) have been massive, to be fair. I sit next to Connor in the changing room and he put his arm around me quite early and let me know the way around here and what is good and what is not. I can only be thankful to be honest and it has been a smooth transition.

"For him to take the time, he obviously thinks a bit of me to do that because he doesn’t need to. Like I say, I speak about all the senior boys and they have been brilliant with me so far.

"I do owe a lot of that to the manager because I have come in and he has made it really easy for me. There have been multiple opportunities to put an arm around me and I have felt it.

"As a player, that can be honestly so important, to feel like you are supported and feel like they understand you away from football as well. I think that is what has made it so smooth for me."
