Rangers manager Steve Gerrard gave major credit to midfielder Glen Kamara for his performance in the 4-0 victory over Dundee United on Saturday.
The Light Blues produced a clinical display at home to brush aside their opponents and tey remain at the top of the table with 19 points from seven games, but most notably they are still to concede a single goal.
Ryan Kent, James Tavernier, Kemar Roofe and Scott Arfield were all on the scoresheet at Ibrox in a routine win, as they flexed their attacking muscles.
Gerrard did single out Kamara as a real bright spark from the contest and has suggested he’s now pushing for a spot in the starting XI after recently losing his position.
The 24-year-old was substituted onto the pitch after just 11 minutes due to Ryan Jack’s injury and certainly made the most of the opportunity that presented itself to him.
“I think he fits into our system like a glove. He could’ve started today without a shadow of a doubt,” Gerrard said, as quoted by the club’s official Youtube account.
“I thought he was very good when he come on. Over the course of the season Glen Kamara is going to get many appearances.
“Glen can do anything out there. He’s so comfortable as a six, in a three, in a two, he’s so intelligent and takes the message. As I say, he’s pushing to be in the XI for sure.”
Kamara started the opening four games of the league season and is firmly in the plans of manager Gerrard, despite the fact he’s been named on the bench for the recent three fixtures.
The Finland international was a real driving force in the centre of the park for his side and the manager’s comments should give him a real boost.
The Scottish side are going to have to rotate heavily during a hectic schedule of games, so Kamara needs to keep impressing whenever he’s on the pitch to try nail down a starting XI position.
