Rangers star Glen Kamara has insisted that it is “important everyone sticks together” ahead of a massive week for the club with the first leg of the Europa League clash with Bayer Leverkusen on Thursday, followed by Sunday’s Old Firm clash.
The Finn was pleased to come away with a 1-0 win over Ross County yesterday and admits the Gers weren’t at their best as Ryan Kent’s goal proved the difference.
Kamara hopes the Gers can use the win to build on ahead of the crunch game and admits they are fixtures that the squad are all looking forward to.
“We had a talk about things after the Hamilton game and all the boys and staff were there,” Kamara said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“It is important everyone sticks together when things are tough and we did that.
“This is a hard place to come to and it takes character and fight to win here. We weren’t at our best but we will take the win.
“After the results we have had recently there was pressure on us in this game. We just had to stay focused and get the win and we have done that. Hopefully, this result can silence some of our critics and we can go and build on it.
“We knew we had to concentrate and deliver and we have done that. We want to keep the momentum going.
“Now we want to keep delivering on the pitch for the rest of the season.
“It is a huge week for the club but it is one we are all looking forward to and we want to deliver good performances in Europe and in the Old Firm game. Some people write us off in Europe and they don’t expect us to get results, so hopefully we can prove them wrong.”
Kamara has featured in all but one of the Europa League games, watching the second leg against Braga from the bench, and is likely to be involved on Thursday.
With Ryan Jack and Scott Arfield both struggling with injuries, Steven Gerrard may have little option than to start Kamara alongside Steven Davis and Joe Aribo.
Hopefully, the win against Ross County is a turning point though and Rangers can continue their fantastic Europa League run a bit further.
