“Keep working extra hard” – Sakala’s excellent attitude shines through again

Image for “Keep working extra hard” – Sakala’s excellent attitude shines through again

Hunger, attitude, commitment, desire and talent. Fashion Sakala has all of those attributes and more.

Yet again, the popular Zambian showed his worth – coming off the bench today in Livingston to make a decisive contribution with the third goal to put the game beyonf doubt in Rangers favour.

It was a fine header, as much as Livi will be disappointed at how they conceded from James Tavernier’s corner. For his worth, Sakala had pinned Jason Holt who was holding on to his shirt, he was simply too strong for his marker and managed to make an impressive jump from a standing start to power the ball home, before the host’s goalkeeper Max Stryjek could do anything about it.

Even before he had stepped onto the pitch, that massive smile was beaming across the face of Sakala upon hearing the Rangers supporters singing the chant dedicated to him. After only a few months, he is settling in nicely and will definitely make an impact on the rest of the season.

With Rangers shift in focus up front to playing with more width, the former Oostende man will benefit, if not starting, from being used as an impact player like he was on Sunday afternoon. As a player, he is still honing his technique and will be improved under the guidance of Gio Van Bronckhorst and especially, Roy Makaay.

The blistering pace that Sakala possesses is priceless and will come to the fore when Rangers need it, those chances will come for the opposition to be exploited.

‘Fashion Junior’ just needs to continue what he is doing, with hard work and endeavour which is guaranteed from him there is much more potential to be unlocked.
