When Glen Kamara signed for Rangers on deadline day, few would have thought he would be a key man just a month later.

Especially, as it reportedly cost the club just £45k to release him from his previous contract.

Yet, here we are.

It took a while for the Finland international to build up match fitness, having not featured for Dundee since before the winter break.

However, when a first opportunity came against St Johnstone – he took it.

Since then, he has proved undroppable.

Against Kilmarnock and ironically, Dundee, he was particularly impressive, earning rave reviews from fans.

In scoring against his former club at Ibrox, he proved any remaining ties with the Dee were well and truly severed.

He’s a Rangers player now, and boy does he look like one.

 

Key Kamara

On Friday, Steven Gerrard’s men travel to Easter Road to take on Hibernian.

There has been a changing of the guard there recently. That doesn’t make it an easy place to go and win, though.

The Gers are yet to pick up a league win against the Hibees this season.

Yet, they didn’t have Kamara to call upon in either of those matches. Since he made his first team bow, Rangers have scored 15 and conceded just once.

Obviously, there are other factors at work here. Still, though, his impact has been impressive.

With fitness concerns lingering over Ryan Jack, the 23-year-old is near guaranteed to start in the middle of the park.

If he can step up and control the game once more, the Gers have every chance of leaving with all three points.
