DOMINIC BALL has set his sights on a silverware haul at Rangers in the coming months to give him a shot at first team glory at Tottenham next season.

The 20-year-old has become a key part of Mark Warburton’s Ibrox plans this term as he has impressed in central defence and midfield berths for the Gers.

Ball got to the brink of the Spurs first team in the last couple of years but will have to wait until the summer for a chance to impress boss Mauricio Pochettino as he bids to finally make his mark at White Hart Lane.

But, before he returns to London in search of a big break, he is determined to end the campaign on a high by helping Warburton’s side to Championship glory and cup success.

Ball said: “Before I came here, I spoke to the gaffer at Spurs and he told me if I was ready then I would play.

“I was training with their first team for a few months before I went on loan to Cambridge last year.

“Hopefully coming back in with a number of games under my belt, it gives you a bit more credit when you say you want to play.

“I think that will help me massively and it’s good to know he will give me a chance if I am good enough.

“We are in a cup final, and playing in games like that is also one of the reasons I came here. We’re also hoping to go well in the Scottish Cup.

“Winning the league, the Petrofac Cup and the Scottish Cup while playing at one of the biggest clubs in Europe would be a great thing to have on my CV.”

If Rangers are to enjoy a successful end to the season, Warburton will rely on his tried and trusted stars to maintain the standards they set in the first half of the campaign.

Ball has had to compete with Danny Wilson and Rob Kiernan for a starting spot this term but has also shown his adaptability by playing as the Gers’ midfield anchor man.

And the England youth international is thankful for the advice he is receiving from his team-mates and Ibrox legend David Weir as he strives for further improvement in the coming months.

“David has played hundreds of games, both here and in the Premiership, and that’s obviously what I want to do as well,” he told RangersTV.

“I speak to him on a regular basis and there are so many things I can learn from him, and that shows in his coaching as he is always talking to me and giving me tips.

“Likewise Rob and Danny have been great. They have both played in England and up here in Scotland, so there are little things you learn from them in training and in games.

“I’ve got loads of things I still need to improve, otherwise I’d be at Barcelona! Even the things I’m good at, I still like to work on – things like my sharpness and my agility.

“In defence, I could maybe be a bit more vocal, I need to work on my heading too and my long, diagonal balls – they are the things I look at every day and after every game and know they are not good enough and need to be better.

“But I come to training and want to work on those things, and in the games hopefully the improvements are starting to show.

“Concentration is one of the main things, and with the way Spurs play this will help me massively for going back there too as you can have five or 10 minutes where you don’t have anything to do, and then suddenly you’re called into action for a counter-attack.”
