Andy Webster is finally taking a central role during Rangers pre-season preparations.

Andy Webster is finally taking a central role during Rangers pre-season preparations.

Injuries and loss of form meant the 28-year-old has only made one competitive appearance for Rangers since his arrival, initially on loan from Wigan, in January 2007.

But his fortunes were rejuvenated last season as a loan spell at Dundee United helped him return to the Scotland fold and win a Scottish Cup winner's medal.

The former Hearts defender has started all three pre-season matches Rangers have played so far to give him encouragement that his Ibrox career is finally lifting off.

"Having done all of the hard work in pre-season, it has been nice to be involved when the games have come around," Webster told rangersfc.co.uk.

"I hope this is me finally getting there now. Everything that has gone on before is in the past and I'm looking forwards and making sure I'm ready for the start of the campaign.

"At this stage, it's all about getting a level of fitness and with the squad we've got, a lot of the boys have played in the majority of the games so far.

"The more you play and the more involved you become, the more comfortable you then get with your surroundings and I'm happy to be in the side at the moment."
