Rangers loanee Flo Kamberi has claimed he would have started in the Old Firm clash earlier this month if it hadn’t been cancelled by the SPFL – and pleaded for his temporary switch to be made permanent.
The Albanian has impressed in his handful of performances since moving from Hibs and admitted he was left annoyed at missing out on the biggest game of his career.
Despite that though, he confessed there are more important things than football just now with the UK on lockdown.
“Rangers are an incredible club. Everything there is the finest there could be. The infrastructure is outstanding and the staff are great,” Kamberi told Sonntags Blick.
“When I moved to Scotland two years ago, my second game was against Rangers and since then I have dreamed of playing for them myself.
“I really want to stay here long term. Playing in front of 50,000 fans every other week is just awesome.”
“It would have been the biggest game in my career. I think I would have played in my Old Firm game from the start.
“Obviously, the postponement has really annoyed me, but now there are more important things than football.”
Kamberi has done well at Ibrox since his deadline day arrival from Hibs and had offered something different in attack for Steven Gerrard’s side.
The Albanian is due to return to Hibs this summer but could stay at Ibrox with Greg Docherty turning his Easter Road move into a permanent one too.
That will all have to wait though as clubs figure out how to deal the Covid-19 pandemic which brought football to a halt.
