Former Rangers star and Sky Sports pundit Neil McCann has tipped Glen Kamara to make a big contribution to Rangers when he joins the first-team squad at the end of the season.
Kamara signed a pre-contract with the Gers this weekend, joining for four years after his final six months in a Dundee shirt this season.
McCann was the man who signed the Finnish international for the Dark Blues and has revealed he was blown away within minutes of seeing him in action when initially checking him out in training.
As quoted by The Daily Record, McCann said: “He was like a mini Patrick Vieira the way he got about the pitch. He’d fling the big leg across, he’d change direction, you couldn’t get the ball off him. He was strong, he took the ball anywhere he wanted to really. I thought, ‘Right, let’s get this deal done!’. So we took him in and got it done. Ten minutes was all it took.”
Also going on to state he could be playing in the English Premier League right now and one day could make a lot of money for the Gers, McCann is clearly looking forward to seeing him in action at Ibrox.
A product of the Arsenal youth system, Kamara has had an unconventional route to Rangers but is well placed to immediately contend for a starting position in Steven Gerrard’s first-team.
He’s an exciting acquisition and at just 23 years of age has plenty of room to improve too.
All Rangers eyes will be on how he performs for Dundee in the second half of the season.
