Nigerian forward Cyriel Dessers is burning up the Scottish Premiership with goals, extending his red-hot scoring streak to three games with a decisive strike in Rangers’ narrow 1-0 victory over St Mirren.
The Super Eagles’ star clinical finish after just 14 minutes proved to be the difference on a tough afternoon at the Paisley 2021 Stadium, keeping Rangers firmly in the title hunt just five points behind league leaders Celtic.
Dessers’ recent form has been nothing short of sensational, Footballrover reports.
He doubled Rangers’ lead in their 4-1 Scottish Cup win over Dumbarton before wrapping up the scoring in their 3-0 triumph against Hibernian.
This latest matchwinner against St. Mirren further extends it to three games in a row.
The 29-year-old forward, having bounced between Genk, Feyenoord, and Cremonese in recent years, has seemingly found a permanent home in Glasgow.
Since arriving in Scotland last summer, he’s not only become a fan favourite but also a key source of goals, netting eight in 19 Premiership appearances along with two assists.
His current scoring spree has propelled Rangers closer to Celtic at the top of the table, and fans will be expecting more of the same when the Gers host Livingston at home next Saturday.
Dessers’ red-hot form promises to be a key factor in Rangers‘ quest for silverware this season.
