BBC Confirmed: Reported £6m striker News Report: Rated the Leading Star After the Impressive performance Against Hearts….

Rangers fans have needed a new hero for some time and, after his dramatic winner against Hearts a week ago, Danilo put his hand up to be counted.

The Brazilian may have cost £6m, as his song goes, but he is starting to make the sort of impact on games that we all hoped he would.

If Rangers are to win silverware this season and catch Celtic at the top of the league, then Danilo will have to show more of the form that he has from the last seven days.

That, is exactly what a Rangers centre forward should be doing on a week to week basis.

More importantly, they should still be making a contribution even if the aren’t playing well or scoring goals.

Against Hearts, Rangers were knocking on the door before James Tavernier’s penalty opener with most of the first half chances falling to Danilo.

An attempt to curl one effort into Zander Clark’s top right hand corner was followed up with a header that he mistimed and knocked over the bar before a well-worked move with Todd Cantwell saw a volley flash narrowly wide.

On another day, you would expect Danilo to take at least one of these chances.

The difference, is that he is making these opportunities by how clever his movement is and his speed of thought.

Rarely does he take more than one or two touches in and around the box.

Danilo might not have had his shooting boots on but his reaction to get to the ball before Clark and his awareness to play in Scott Wright decided the game.

Two influential moments that gave Rangers a two goal lead to defend.

Never mind the Oasis song, it’s Danilo that’s been electric in recent appearances – no wonder he was enjoying himself at full-time..
