Rangers loanee Kai Kennedy admits his debut for Hamilton wasn’t ideal, losing 1-0 to former loan side Dunfermline but thinks the move to Lanarkshire will suit his style of play in the coming months.

Kennedy was a second-half substitute for Stuart Taylor’s side but couldn’t help them claw back Ryan Dow’s first-half opener and grab a share of the spoils at East End Park.

Having just been recalled from a loan spell with the Fifers, Kennedy explained that the plan was always for him to head back out rather than waiting around at Rangers to see if he would get a chance in Gio van Bronckhorst’s first-team.

“Having played against [Hamilton] this season I think they’ve played well,” Kennedy said after making his debut for Accies.

“The way they play football suits me. Obviously, Saturday wasn’t great but going forward it will suit me personally.

“It was simple, just get more games under my belt. I think that’s what I need. I just need to start adding some stuff to my game.

“I just got it done as soon as possible. We knew it was happening as soon as I got back. It wasn’t the sake of a recall and then see what happens. It was going straight back on loan.”

Kennedy has also had spells out on loan with Raith Rovers and Inverness CT over the last 18 months and the winger will be hoping he can impress a bit more consistently with Hamilton.

There are big hopes for him at Rangers but he needs to hit the ground running at Hamilton after being in and out of the side at Dunfermline earlier in the season.
