Immortalized in song at the Ibrox with Belinda Carlisle’s ‘Heaven is a place on Earth,’ Lundstram’s midfield performances and Europa League semi-final winner won the hearts – and voices – of Rangers viewers, who took time to cling to the ‘silks Scouser” to get used to. .
Now based in Glasgow and an integral part of Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side, alongside his versatility in defense and midfield there are parallels to Sands’ start in city life, where the Englishman set an example of what can be achieved with patience – and then with benefits.
“He’s quite a player to learn from. Even off the bench, if you see how he handles the game, he’s very calm and he has that switch when he’s off the ball that all the top players have,” Sands explained. “I certainly wouldn’t want to play against him.
“I think he’s a great example of how things also take time. In the first half of the season he wasn’t in the squad much and now he was the most important player.”
“I think that’s a good lesson to take with me as well.”
The catchy chorus isn’t just a sign of growing affection – it’s also an acknowledgment of recent performances, which have led fans to eulogize his name as “the best in the world.”
“There are a few good ones,” Sands added. “Diallo has a good and of course fashion. I would like a song. I still have to do a few gigs before that.”
