Rangers will do well to hold on to flying star with stock rapidly rising

As Rangers edged out a 1-0 victory at Easter Road, all of the post-match talk might’ve been focused on Alfredo Morelos.

Such is the nature of Scottish football coverage anything like this involving Morelos will take precedence over the football and his resultant charge from the media campaign is unsurprising.

But had some taken the time to properly analyse the game then there would’ve one player above the full 22 on the pitch who’d have been the subject of much greater praise.

Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara is one of the club’s standout performers and is emerging as one Rangers’ most reliable and talented players.

There has probably been no player who has developed more at Ibrox over the last 18 months than Kamara – no mean feat given how much the entire team has progressed.

Against Hibernian, this was the type of progressive, aggressive, athletic, intelligent Kamara performance which is becoming a weekly treat for Rangers fans this season.

The player’s performance was perhaps best summed up by a move in the second half where Kamara’s silkiness was clear as he bobbed and weaved through the Hibs defence.

That close control had him dragging them left to right, with the now infamous Kamara turn a polished attribute which swings momentum from one direction to another.

Swapping the ball between himself and Kemar Roofe, the ball would be eventually worked to Ryan Kent who struck it well by was denied by Ofir Marciano.

But it was the base of that move with Kamara which made it so superlative and if anything it is further evidence that Rangers will do very well to keep the flying star with his stock rising by the game.

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has previously pleaded with the club’s board to sign up Kamara on a new deal with over 10 clubs being linked to the player already this season.
