Report: New contract imminent for Rangers talent Steven Gerrard thinks is ‘outstanding’

Glasgow Rangers prodigy Kai Kennedy is set to sign a new contract at Ibrox, according to the Daily Record.

The 18-year-old broke into the Rangers first-team setup last season but an alleged disagreement with Steven Gerrard over playing time saw him change clubs in October.

Kennedy, whose Gers contract expires next summer, linked up with Inverness Caledonian Thistle on a loan stint until January, making 10 appearances in all competitions.

Given this alleged falling out between Gerrard and Kennedy, there were fears that the player could potentially have been looking to leave Ibrox at the end of the season.

 

However, speculation became more positive in November, Glasgow Live reporting that productive discussions were ongoing between Kennedy and Rangers.

And now, the Daily Record has claimed that Kennedy’s future will be settled imminently, with an announcement from the club apparently due soon.

TBR View:

Kennedy is a very highly rated young player, who Gerrard previously described as “outstanding” and a “fabulous little player”.

It was worrying to hear earlier this year that he was apparently out of favour at Ibrox and looked like he was potentially heading for the exit door permanently.

However, the latest report seems to suggest that he’ll commit his future to Rangers, and if all goes well, he could be one of their stars of the future.
