James Tavernier, Ryan Kent and Glen Kamara have been named in World Soccer’s 500 Most Important Players in the World.

The Rangers stars all featured in the list, compiling not necessarily the ‘best’ players on Planet Earth, but the most significant.

Who had the most impact? Who made a real difference? Who stood out?

In each case, there are strong reasons.

Tavernier had an absolutely ridiculous season from right back last season, with his July to January making him arguably one of the most in-form players in Europe. As captain, he got to lift 55 first.

In Kent’s, he had ‘mixed results’ (to quote World Soccer) before he got to Ibrox, but has kicked on, and his goal in Braga earned Rangers at least £7M from that UEL campaign. He’s also had major impact v Celtic and has a market value well in excess of the fee Rangers paid for him. His form for 55 was stellar.

Lastly, Glen Kamara may not have been in sparkling form of late, but his global status is big, ‘thanks’ to what happened v Slavia. But there’s no denying the £50K fee looks like the most ridiculous bargain.

The most lavish praise the list has is definitely for Tavernier, with their comments on his absurd stats that 55-winning season suggesting how impressed they were by him.

The list, incidentally, is in no order, and the closest we get to any kind of ‘priority’ is some players are featured in a full-page spread.

Just shows how much good Steven Gerrard has done with this club.
