Two of Rangers’s January signings, Matt Polster and Glen Kamara, are yet to make their Rangers debuts.

Polster joined the Gers as a free agent, having last played for Chicago Fire in the MLS.

His last appearance for them was back in October, so he’s short of match fitness.

Kamara, is also short of game time.

His move from Dundee was a protracted one and so, he hasn’t played since a 2-0 defeat to St Johnstone on 29th December.


Acknowledging their situations, Steven Gerrard was quick to pour cold water on talk of them coming straight into the first team reckonings.

However, with over ten days of full training now under their belts, including double sessions, it appears they are getting closer.

Both players started for the Reserves during Monday’s 1-1 draw with St Johnstone.

Encouragingly, Kamara was directly involved in Rangers’s only goal.

He threaded the ball through for the impressive Glenn Middleton, who finished past Cammy Bell.


The Finnish international wasn’t deemed quite ready for the full 90 minutes, though, and instead, was withdrawn on the hour mark.

Polster, though, lasted the duration.

Perhaps that’s a sign that he’s the closer of the two players to being fully fit.

Could either player feature in the squad to face St Johnstone on Saturday?

That may come too soon. Yet, fixtures are coming thick and fast at the minute.

The Gers welcome Kilmarnock to Ibrox next Wednesday, before travelling to Hamilton. Perhaps Bears will get a first sighting of one of their new stars during that period.
