Rangers lost ground in the title race over the weekend after they were held to a 0-0 draw by St. Johnstone at Ibrox.
It was not a game without a single positive, however, with midfielder Glen Kamara making his debut and impressing.
All things considered, the 23-year-old might just end up being the player supporters thought Jordan Rossiter would be.
Much was expected of Rossiter in the middle of the park following his arrival from Liverpool following some promising cameos for the Merseyside club, but the 21-year-old failed to make much of an impact and now finds himself on loan at Bury for the rest of the season.
Kamara, on the other hand, looks the real deal with manager Steven Gerrard struggling to hold himself from waxing lyrical about the 23-year-old.
“He’s a natural footballer who plays with his head up and connects the defensive side of the game with the attacking,” Gerrard was quoted as saying by the Scottish Sun. “He’s been well coached at Arsenal, but I also have to mention Neil McCann [Kamara’s manager at Dundee], who has done an excellent job in taking him from academy football to the next level.”
As already mentioned by his Rangers boss, Kamara is a midfielder who links both sides of the game well with the Finland international possessing the power and strength to make himself a real presence in the engine room.
It is early days, of course, but Gerrard looks to be onto a winner with Kamara, who could be set for a big future at Ibrox.
