The Italian also impressed when Rangers saw off fellow play-off hopefuls Cardiff two weeks ago, something which came as no surprise to Cook.
'Damiano Tommasi is just starting to play some games for us. I knew he was going to be a top player because I always signed him on Champ Man and he always did a job for me,' said the former Fulham winger on his personal blog.

'He's the best English speaker of all the lads who've come in from abroad and he's very easy to talk to.
