“He wants to improve himself as a player and Rangers can help him do that,” Porrini told the Sunday Post.

“They are one of the most famous clubs in the world and as such are able to afford to bring in players of a higher level.

“The reason they will have recruited Florian is that they must have seen something in him which makes them believe he can elevate himself to that standard.

“But if things don’t go well for him there, and he has to go back to Hibs at the end of the loan, then I am sure he would give everything for the shirt.

“My own view is that he will do well enough to earn himself the chance to stay on at Rangers because he has a lot of talent.”

Kamberi has only made one appearance so far, coming off the bench against Aberdeen, but could come into contention against Kilmarnock in midweek.

The striker is unlikely to depose Alfredo Morelos as the number one striker but could have a big role to play from the bench in the coming weeks.

If he does have to go back to Hibs, it might be difficult for him given the over-reaction to his comments when he signed for Rangers.
