Glasgow Rangers’ on loan attacker Florian Kamberi has declared he is ready to go, should he be picked for the huge Europa League second leg clash with Braga on Wednesday evening.
The Gers will head over to Portugal with a 3-2 lead after an incredible night at Ibrox last week, and with every chance to make it into the last 16 of the secondary European competition.
One problem Rangers have though is a shortage of attacking options, with Jermain Defoe out injured and star striker Alfredo Morelos is suspended.
That leaves Gers boss Steven Gerrard having to choose from on loan Hibernian man Kamberi and Greg Stewart to lead the line in the crunch clash.
The Albanian changed the game when he came on in the 2-2 draw with St Johnstone on Sunday afternoon, and he hopes that he did enough in those 45 minutes to get the starting berth against Braga.
“I try every day to give the manager something to think about to play me. I will respect any decision he makes. It’s about Rangers, it’s not about me. It’s about what is best for the team, and I will be ready whenever he gives me a chance.” FourFourTwo quotes him as saying.
“I have that responsibility also for two years at Hibs. But I know it’s something different at Rangers in the Europa League away in Portugal. It’s not going to be easy, everybody knows this, but we have the quality to win.”
Although Rangers head to Portugal with the advantage in the tie, Braga do have two away goals to their name, meaning they will only need to win 1-0 in the second leg to progress to the next round.
That means there will be a lot of responsibility on who leads the line for the Gers, with all eyes being on the team sheet to see who Gerrard selects for the key role.
