Unsung Hero: Rangers’ Glen Kamara continues to quietly impress

Unsung Hero: Rangers’ Glen Kamara continues to quietly impress

Rangers eased past FC Midtjylland and booked their place in the next round of the Europa League competition with a 7-3 aggregate victory.

The Light Blues continued their fine form within European competition as they managed to record a 3-1 victory in front of an Ibrox crowd.

Alfredo Morelos managed to hit a brace whilst Sheyi Ojo continued his fine start to life at Rangers with a goal just before half time – leading to Steven Gerrard waxing lyrical about the Liverpool loanee’s performance on the club’s official website.

Although Jon Flanagan appeared to make a mistake for the visitor’s solitary goal, the Bears were hardly tested throughout the tie and dominated from the first whistle, seeing 58% ball possession (via Transfermarkt).

However, one man’s performances that appear to have gone under the radar for Rangers in recent weeks is those of Glen Kamara’s.

The Finland international may have joined the Light Blues in January for a bargain £50,000 from Dundee – a transfer fee that had been described by team-mate Scott Arfield as the “steal of the century” – but his contributions simply cannot go unnoticed.

The 23-year-old has impressed a number of his team-mates during his short stay with the Ibrox outfit whilst Rangers News have already noted that the newbie has quickly become a fan favourite.

Indeed, he put in another solid performance on Thursday night and had a number of different media outlets praising his contribution once again – although it did not appear as though his display was earning as much recognition as it perhaps should have.

Ibrox News may have felt he was “decent”, but there were plenty of others that were singing his praises a little more than them.

After handing him an eight, Rangers News wrote: “Pointing out the fact that Rangers got Kamara for £50,000 is becoming an over-used line – but the fact the Gers got him so cheaply is still ridiculous. Finnish international is such an intelligent player and makes everything look simple.”

The Scottish Sun appeared to share the same reaction to his performance as they wrote: “At just £50,000, he represents an incredible bit of business. Calm, composed and seemingly always in space, the Finnish international is one of those players who can make the game look easy. 8.”

The Daily Record noted that he had “another solid display”, whilst Football Scotland were impressed with his break-up play and his ability to make tackles.

As it has been mentioned, £50,000 is a steal for a player of Kamara’s ability but it is simply too hard to ignore just how good of a player Rangers have on their hands, especially considering he goes about his work extremely quietly.
