Jordan Campbell believes that the 2020/21 season could be Kai Kennedy’s breakthrough year at Glasgow Rangers.
The Athletic journalist has put together a piece looking at how the Light Blues’ squad could line-up next term, discussing where they need to strengthen. Kennedy is currently not part of Steven Gerrard’s senior setup but he has already attracted attention from clubs in England and Germany, showing that he is already well regarded even at the age of 18.
In the article, Campbell wrote:
“This could be Kai Kennedy’s breakthrough year. The messages have been positive from Gerrard as he has assured him he is in his plans for this season and it is believed that he seems his best position as a No 10, which makes him tailor-made for the system Rangers use.”
Kennedy was able to display his creative ability for the Light Blues’ youth sides during the previous season – he created two goals in six games in the Challenge Cup whilst he managed another three assists in five matches in the UEFA Youth League. He has also impressed at international level, scoring once in four matches for Scotland’s under-19 side.
Would you like to see Kai Kennedy feature regularly next term?
With Ryan Kent the number one option at left-wing, the teenager is unlikely to be a regular starter for the ‘Gers but he could prove to be a very useful backup option for Steven Gerrard. With veterans such as Allan McGregor, Jermain Defoe and Steven Davis still at Ibrox, this squad is not the youngest – Kennedy could give it a much-need youthful edge.
