Unsung hero: Glen Kamara the only Rangers player to emerge with any credit

Unsung hero: Glen Kamara the only Rangers player to emerge with any credit

Considering things are so tight at the top of the Scottish Premiership, it was imperative that second-placed Rangers beat opponents St Johnstone on Saturday – something they failed to do.

The home side provided very few legitimate opportunities for fans to get excited about and were clearly missing the goal-scoring efforts of Alfredo Morelos, who finds himself out of the team once again due to an episode of poor discipline.

Forget Rangers: St Johnstone looked the most likely to score on the day.

An early penalty shout came in the opening six minutes of the game after Chris Kane’s effort was apparently blocked in the box by James Tavernier’s arm.

Kane would later have another effort denied by the brave efforts of Wes Foderingham who was released by a well-placed Matty Kennedy ball in behind.

Blair Alstone was inches away from compiling the Gers’ misery in the final 10 minutes of the game only to see his lobbed effort hit the woodwork.

Kyle Lafferty had an opportunity to steal three points minutes after St Johnstone missed their own but failed to do so sending his shot way off target.

All in all, a day to forget for Rangers fans.

Wasn’t a great day for anyone other than Wes Foderingham really. However, if we were to pick someone for extra credit, Glen Kamara certainly deserves it.

Saturday was his debut for Rangers following his move from Dundee earlier last month and, although he was unable to help his team to victory, he can be proud of his tremendous efforts in the first-half.

A huge massive talent who’s clearly ready to make a name for himself in Glasgow.
