Rangers star snapped in Brondby training after short-lived B Team stint

Rangers star Stephen Kelly has been spotted back in Ibrox training ahead of the trip to Copenhagen to face Brondby in the Europa League after a stint with the B Team.

This comes after the 21-year-old midfielder dropped down to the B side last week for the SPFL Trust Trophy clash with Alloa Athletic.

Kelly started the clash against Barry Ferguson’s side as David McCallum’s team triumphed in a five-goal thriller at Recreation Park.

The youngster was snapped being put through his paces as part of the club’s training session before heading off to Denmark for the match against the nation’s Champions.

Rangers decided to keep Stephen Kelly at the club this season after a series of successful loan moves around Scotland.

Highly rated by the club, Kelly spent a season on loan with Ayr United in the Scottish Championship before spending the last campaign on loan at Premiership Ross County.

But despite much interest in the player for this campaign, Rangers have opted to keep him around this season.

No doubt learning from the experience of playing with Rangers’ talented squad, there is something to be said for developing Kelly’s talents at home.

Rangers fans hoping to see more of the youngster have been left disappointed with Kelly’s appearances limited so far this campaign in what is a competitive midfield.

In fact, the player’s only appearance this season came in the Europa League, as Kelly came on as a late substitute against Alashkert in the away leg of the competition’s Playoff round.

This was with Rangers ravaged by a Covid outbreak in the squad which had a series of key first team players missing for the clash in Armenia.

Rangers have also been boosted by the news that the Ibrox side could have a key player back in the squad for the clash with Brondby.
