Former Rangers winger Neil McCann thinks Glen Kamara is a “star in the making” and believes the Gers are signing a “class act” in the Finn.

Kamara joined the Gers last month after originally penning a pre-contract to move to Ibrox in the summer.

McCann, who managed Kamara at Dundee, thinks he’ll only continue to get better at Rangers under Steven Gerrard.

“If he gets into the side, I think it will be very difficult to move him,” McCann told BBC Scotland.

“He’s a real star in the making. He’s still learning the game but I just think he’s a terrific footballer. He moves so well and Rangers are getting a class act.


“He will continue to improve under Steven Gerrard and dealing with the expectation levels at such a big club.”

Kamara joins the Gers when they have a pretty stacked midfield.

Scott Arfield, Lassana Coulibaly, Steve Davis, Ryan Jack, Ross McCrorie and Matt Polster are all vying for a place in the starting XI.


The Finn has yet to make his first-team bow but has been involved in the last two reserve games for the Gers.

After being a regular in the Dundee side in the earlier in the season he was axed just after Christmas.

Kamara is now working on getting fit and trying to force his way into the side.

Since joining Dundee in 2017, he’s shown he is a classy player and the Gers look to be getting a real steal.

At only 23, time is very much on his side as he tries to make a name for himself.

Hopefully, McCann’s assessment of Kamara is spot on.
