Potentially career-defining award given to Rangers rising star playmaker


While we’ve talked about the potential of young Nathan Young-Coombes to deliver on the senior stage for Rangers, it was not he but team mate Kai Kennedy who deservedly won the player of the tournament in Qatar for the entire Alkass trophy.

The 16 year old midfielder/winger/attacking midfielder had a stunning final and not only scored the winning penalty but had been showing his class throughout the match with a sequence of nifty touches, runs, assists and excellent passes, with a range of ability which belied his years.

The number 8 dictated play in most of his performances, and his goal against Kashiwa was especially impressive – it’s really no surprise this stellar playmaker was in such command of midfield and attack, and along with Young-Coombes Rangers have two players now at that level surely capable of going all the way within the capable hands of Craig Mulholland and David McCallum.

It bodes well for the future, and while Young-Coombes may have to work a little on his temper, he along with Kennedy are the stuff potential generations are made from.

Great stuff!
