DUJON Sterling has expressed confidence that he will continue to feature regularly for Rangers thanks to his versatility and stressed that every player in the Ibrox squad will be called on in the remaining games of the season.

The 24-year-old, who has played at left back and in central midfield this season, replaced Scott Wright on the right wing against St Johnstone in Perth last Sunday and helped his side to win 3-0 and move to the top of the cinch Premiership table.

The former Chelsea player, whose preferred position before he moved to Scotland last summer was right back, is content to perform any role that manager Philippe Clement asks him to and he is sure that all of his team mates are exactly the same.

Rangers, who were yesterday drawn to face Benfica in the last 16 of the Europa League next month,  have a punishing run of fixtures coming up at home and abroad, but Sterling is confident they can cope with all of them and enjoy success.

“That's what you have a squad for,” he said. “You have to be able to trust everyone in the squad. To be fair to us, we actually have a good squad.

“You can see by the results it's not really impacting us having three games a week and we've been doing it since the start of the season really so nothing changes now.

“It's just taking it game by game and just trying to rest, recover, repeat and keep on what we've been doing so far.

The Herald: “I'm just happy to be on the pitch. Whatever the gaffer needs from me for the team, that's what I'm willing to do. For me, it's just normal.

“Circumstances helped me get into the team and since then I just made it my number one objective not to come out the team and to just keep my shirt.”

Sterling added: “The first time I came on in midfield was the first time I ever done it so it was just learning as I go. Since then, I just put it in my mind.

“With the gaffer speaking to me, I've learned these four or five positions because each game it could change where I play. Each day I've been working on what to do in this position and taking notes and keep learning.

“It's fine. I've got a lot of time to study and learn plus I've got players in training who I can also watch as well. For example, when I was playing in midfield I just watched Lunny (John Lundstram) who's a prime example in our team.

“I am just adapting to my style. I bring something different to what the rest of the midfielders bring. Throughout the team, we have a good balance so everything's been fine.

“I just think it's the way I've been coached and brought up. At Chelsea, you don't play in one position, you get taught to play in every single position. Every game you could play in a different position so it's just about learning that.

“I was at Chelsea since I was six until last summer so that's 18 years of developing and learning.”

Meanwhile, Sterling has stressed that he will not change his 100 per cent approach to tackling despite  his frustration at being sent off at the end of the Premiership match against Aberdeen at Ibrox earlier this month.  

The Herald: "I thought the red card was harsh," he said. "But it's not in my control, it's up to the ref and the SPFL. But now that I'm back I'm just trying to make a positive impact like I did at the weekend so hopefully, again tomorrow it continues.

"Watching it back, I can see why they think it's dangerous, but you can see I clearly slipped and I've only touched his toe and I haven't touched his ankle. But we move on, it's been done and there's nothing we can do. I've taken the two-game ban and now I'm just looking forward to the rest of the season.

"But it won't really affect how I tackle in the future. I'll still go in and try and win the ball 100 percent. If I catch him, I catch him and if I don't, I don't. It's just trying to balance it out and hopefully, next time not slipping."
