Talented Rangers kid Kai Kennedy continued his fine form whilst out on loan this season by putting in a MOTM display for adopted side Raith Rovers.
Kennedy, 19, spent the first half of this season on loan impressing at Inverness and has slotted in seamlessly at Stark’s Park in the second half of the campaign.

The youngster inspired Rovers to a 1-2 victory away to Alloa in the Scottish Championship which has helped keep the club’s Premiership promotion dream alive.
Despite falling 1-0 down in the first half courtesy of a Kevin Cawley goal, Raith rallied in the second with Gozie Ugwu and Dylan Tait securing the three points.
The result secured a playoff place for Raith whilst it relegated Alloa and Kennedy – who signed a new deal at Ibrox earlier in the season amid links to the likes of Man City – will be hoping to inspire a late charge to the top tier.
Kennedy wasn’t the only Rangers loanee impressing in the Scottish Championship over the weekend either.
Ibrox kid Ben Williamson continues to impress on loan with Arbroath and the midfielder scored his first ever professional goal in the 4-0 win over Ayr United at Gayfield Park.

Rangers have a host of loan players out across the UK and these two Academy kids weren’t the only impressing over the weekend.
Another Ibrox youngster was scoring a late winner for his adopted side as he continues to make his mark south of the border.
