Rangers loanee Kai Kennedy scored a superb first goal for Inverness in a 3-0 win over Queen of the South on Friday night.
The 18-year-old was demoted to the Gers B team during pre-season following a breakdown in contract talks and he looked to have no future at Ibrox [Daily Record] prior to heading off to the Highlands on a short-term loan.
The Scotland youth international still has a few weeks left at Caley Thistle, though, and he impressed on Friday night in a Championship fixture shown live by BBC Scotland.
Kennedy opened the scoring at Palmerston in the 21st minute, showing superb skill and confidence in possession.
Following a one-two with a teammate, Kennedy picked the ball up outside the box on the left, dropped the shoulder and went past QoS right-back Willie Gibson like he wasn’t there, before driving towards goal and sliding a finish in off the goalkeeper from a tight angle.
It was a piece of individual brilliance that gave the away side the lead and they never looked back, with second-half goals from Roddy MacGregor and Miles Storey sealing the win.
It was a fine first senior goal for Kennedy and the three points saw Inverness move up to fourth in the table.
