Rangers star man still needs to cut out the errors – view


We’ve touched on this before once or twice, and after last night’s ultimately superb win over St Joseph’s, the issue reared itself again, as Tom Miller and Peter Lovenkrands started moaning about it as well.

We are really, really, REALLY liking Glen Kamara these days. From a £65K bargain, this kid is developing into a serious multimillion-pound star – a true asset and someone special.

But we have pointed out in the past his big weakness is concentration, and the knock-on effect of losing the ball in important areas.

Well after two incidents in a row last night which drew ire from RTV’s finest, Kamara REALLY needs to learn to buckle up more, and keep full intensity throughout the 90.

Many times now the former Dundee man has scrappily lost the ball deep in the heart of midfield with a poor inside pass, failing to read the game around him and just losing focus in the process. It has cost goals as well.

Last night he did it twice, and one of them left him desperately trying to recover and having to concede a bad foul.

And if he can just tweak out those occasional errors, he really will be completely devastating and near-enough the most complete midfielder at the club.

He is already a remarkable player, a 23-year old rising star of the game who could be worth up to £30M in the future and beyond.

But for now, he has to learn the bread and butter basics a little better and stop cheaply giving the ball away in key areas.

And we fully back him to do so under the wisdom of the best man to teach him.


  1. Good article IN, I agree with most of it, just don't agree with the potential 30m valuation. But I do agree, he loses concentration and loses the ball in key areas. But then again, Tav is the worst for it!

  2. Relatively speaking, Kamara has immediately fitted in and performed to a far higher standard than VAST MAJORITY of other new arrival that I can think of in the past 30 years & Yes! moments of poor passing/decision making have been a minor on-going issue from day 1 but I honestly feel that these isolated incidents stick out like a sore thumb simply because he is extremely tidy with the ball 99.9% of the time.

    Other players around him have far more individual bad moments & we have basically become accustomed to accepting these errors as pack & parcel of an otherwise talented & productive player so we need to be careful that we don,t create a negative issue where it doesn't actually exist because I am sure the majority of our squad probably have a squint at these, and other similar forum pages, on a regular basis (I certainly would & so would you!) and while we all accept & applaud constructive criticism. I feel that over reacting & unnecessary/negative comments are the LAST thing we need at this particular time & is only doing the manky mobs dirty work for them

    The boys class & he has demonstrated that fact from day 1 in a Rangers shirt & we have a MAJOR MISSION to achieve this season so lets keep the ba" on the grass, bring home "55"
