Rangers, on a run of three succes- sive wins, have the chance to move up to second in the Championship should they beat Leicester City 4-0 tonightandSimpsonislovingevery minute of it. The 20-year-old striker said: I am pleased with how I have settled in. Everyone has been really friendly and there are no cliques. That shows on the pitch. When you have the whole squad pulling in the same direction, then you are going to do well. Theres so much potential here and the best is still yet to come. Simpson admits he could have stayedwiththeGunnersandfought for his place in the first-team. How- ever, he says he benefited hugely from a similar loan spell at West Bromlastseasonandwantedtoplay regular football again. He added: I could have stayed to fight for my place but I got used to playingregularlyforWestBromand I wanted more of that. Ididntwanttogobacktoplaying for the reserves, so I was ready to go on loan again. I am here to play football matches, win football matches and score goals -- simple as that.
