Most people around the world would see the turmoil in America right now and would want to steer clear… but for New England Revolution star Matt Polster, being back in the States is exactly where he wants to be.

An 18-month spell playing under Steven Gerrard in the Scottish top-flight for Rangers provided his first real experience of life outside of America and an invaluable opportunity to learn as a footballer in an unfamiliar environment.

Whilst, ultimately, the move didn’t pan out as anyone would have hoped, the versatile American looks back fondly on his stay in Glasgow and took the time to talk with us at the 4th Official about it all.

In the half-hour chat, we covered everything including his upbringing in Vegas, his experience of playing alongside Bastian Schweinsteiger, the thrill of playing for Rangers and the intensity of the Old Firm library. Have a listen!
