The Lowdown: Underwhelming impact
The 22-year-old returned to Glasgow earlier in the summer following a loan spell with Salford City, but has since failed to make an impact on the senior first-team.
The maestro is yet to make an appearance under Giovanni van Bronckhorst which has now seen him being linked with a move away, and it sounds like there could be a potential suitor closer to home than expected.
The Latest: Kelly set for Rangers exit
According to Daily Record, Kelly is ‘wanted’ by Livingston after failing to make GvB’s plans, with boss David Martindale having ‘made his move’ to ‘rush through a deal’ before the end of the window.
He is also ‘on the radar’ of several other Scottish Premiership clubs, with a host of League One and Two sides said to be ‘keeping tabs’.
It’s stated that he would be ‘allowed to leave’ if the ‘right deal’ could be negotiated with Gers.
The Verdict: Correct decision
Bronckhorst clearly doesn’t see Kelly as part of his long-term plans, so whilst it’s a shame it hasn’t worked out, it’s definitely the right decision to let him go.
Do you think Rangers should sell Kelly?
Kelly will need regular game time if he wants to be successful at an international level with Scotland, and a Rangers exit in the final 24 hours of the window might be what he needs to do just that.
