Philippe Clement has transformed Rangers ever since he was appointed as Michael Beale’s successor at Ibrox last October.

Rangers were seven points behind Celtic when they parted ways with Beale and the situation has been drastically changed under Clement.

The Ibrox club are leading the table, two points ahead of Brendan Rodgers’ side. Belgian newspaper Gazet van Antwerpen says no Rangers fan would have dared to dream this, after a difficult start to the season.

They say ‘everything was bad’ at Rangers, including some of their summer signings. In short, it was a mess before the Belgian arrived at Ibrox.

Clement has managed 26 games so far and Rangers lost only once, which was against Celtic in December. The ‘mood has completely reversed’ following their impressive run under the 49-year-old in the last four months.

The manager’s ‘intervention’ also played a role in Todd Cantwell’s rise at Rangers. The report says the 25-year-old midfielder didn’t take discipline very seriously before.

The Rangers manager took him off after 36 minutes in the Europa League clash against Aris Limassol.

GVA believe this was the turning point for Cantwell, who has been a regular for Rangers since then. Philippe Clement has also shown he’s not to be messed with.

He’s already helped Rangers win the Scottish League Cup and the title could be next.

For what he’s done so far, the newspaper says Philippe Clement is ‘currently king in Glasgow’, and the Belgian media are clearly proud of their compatriot.
