Steven Gerrard made four changes to his Rangers team to take on Hearts last night.
Two of those were enforced, with Jon Flanagan and Jermain Defoe coming in for the suspended Andy Halliday and Alfredo Morelos.

The two other alterations, though, were tactical changes by the manager.

Steven Davis came in for Daniel Candeias, while Glen Kamara replaced Ross McCrorie.
The manager praised both players as ‘outstanding’ on the night, but the fans were particularly taken by the latter.
Kamara signed for the club on January’s Transfer Deadline Day, for a
reported £45,000.

Thats’s a minuscule fee by today’s standards, yet it looks like Rangers have themselves an absolute gem of a midfielder.
Ever since making his debut against St Johnstone in February, he’s looked the part.

It takes a special talent to keep young Ross McCrorie out of the side. Furthermore, the supporters love Kamara despite the fact he’s keeping a homegrown player out of the side, and that says a lot.

He strutted his stuff once again last night, in his familiar deep-lying role.
Far from overawed by playing at Ibrox, he seems to relish the chance to perform on the big stage. That’s exactly the type of player Rangers should be after and it seems as though they’ve pulled off a blinder of a deal.

Here’s a selection of reactions to the midfielder’s display against Hearts:
