Philippe Clement has praised Rangers goalkeeper Jack Butland, saying the former Crystal Palace player is the "best" he has worked with along with Simon Mignolet.

The 50-year-old coached his fellow Belgian while at Club Brugge and he feels the Englishman is right up there in terms of quality.

Butland has been a revelation since arriving at Ibrox last summer, playing an important role in Rangers topping their Europa League group and winning the League Cup.

And Clement has nothing but good things to say about the 30-year-old. He said: "As a player and manager/ assistant manager and all my other experience, I would say he is the best along with Simon Mignolet.

"That is the reality. If people are talking about him being in the England squad, that says enough I think as England will be one of the favourites for Euro 2024.

"He is a really top goalkeeper and a top personality. He and Simon are quite similar but with some different qualities.

"They are both leaders in a way with a lot of authority but also natural. I like both personalities."

While Clement feels the shot-stopper is more than deserving of an international recall, he admits it is up to England boss Gareth Southgate.

"As I said already that is up to someone else in Mr Southgate. He knows all the other goalkeepers, but I do not watch all those games so cannot make that comparison.

"All I can say is Jack is totally ready and that is what I see every day. He is a top-class goalkeeper. "
