Glasgow Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has been mightily impressed with one of his January signings, former Dundee midfield star, Glen Kamara.
The versatile star was performing at an extremely high level with a lowly Dundee side, when the Gers manager spotted his potential.
Gerrard is said to be confident that the 23-year-old can become a first team fixture in his new Rangers side, especially if he continues to improve and develop his career at Ibrox.
Since arriving three or four weeks ago, he has worked hard on his fitness with the Rangers coaches, to get him up to speed with the rest of the squad.
So far he’s been involved against St Johnstone in the 0-0 SPFL tie and the 5-0 thrashing of Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup Ibrox replay.
His part in the Killie victory was overlooked as Alfredo Morelos scored four goals, but Kamara’s performance did not go unnoticed.
A talented, versatile player who is strong in possession, his use of the ball is exemplary.
Slim, fit, and with the great engine he possesses, I predict he will become a huge favourite in this good to watch, but inconsistent Rangers team.
I was also very impressed with his overall work rate and his willingness to be available and take a pass from his teammates.
He is a Finland international player and he performed like one.
A terrific footballer who plays with his head up, Kamara is always looking to be the player to connect the Rangers defence with the attack.
When Rangers lose possession, it is important that every player tries to win the ball back quickly. He is also good at that part of his game.
The 23-year-old is an aggressive midfielder who is comfortable in possession, and if he keeps improving there is no telling what his full potential will become.
With Gerrard praising Kamara so highly, it all augers well for his long-term Ibrox future, and his contract will be surely be extended.
He gives his boss a lot to work with and decide, if together, they can add to his talent.
If Kamara can add to his game by scoring goals and creating multiple assists, his reputation will escalate beyond all expectations.
One of the few successes in the St Johnstone tie when most were downright average in an extremely disappointing game, Kamara was the class act.
