Glasgow Rangers fans were delighted with the performance of Stephen Kelly during the Gers’ pre-season friendly with Partick Thistle on Monday.
The Gers started off their pre-season preparations with a match against local Glasgow side Partick, and they picked up a 1-0 win thanks to a goal from Cedric Itten. With a few of the Gers players recovering from or still competing at the European Championships and the Copa America, Steven Gerrard fielded a younger side that included plenty of his fringe and up-and-coming players.
One of those was midfielder Kelly, who made 29 appearances in all competitions for Ross County last term while on loan (Transfermarkt). Given his chance to impress against Partick, he shone in the middle of the park, and perhaps gave Gerrard something to think about.
Does Stephen Kelly deserve a place in the Gers' starting XI?
The Gers supporters were absolutely delighted with what they saw from the 21-year-old, and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Kelly below
“Stephen Kelly strolling it as expected”
“Stephen Kelly will be our next Davis.”
“Stephen Kelly is the heir to Davis’ throne”
“He’s a class act, I’d keep him with the squad and get him game time in cups and sub appearances up until January and re assess then.”
“Yeah did not look out of place. Wanted the ball, tenacious and always available. He can be pleased. Would like to see more of him.”
