Rangers have committed a stunning u-turn after giving controversial attacker Kai Kennedy a second chance after loan manager at Inverness John Robertson confirmed the youngster was to be getting a new contract under Steven Gerrard.
The controversy of many months ago, including a barbed slur aimed at the playmaker from Stevie G citing ‘ego’ as a problem, seems now to have been resolved and the 18-year old has impressed his current coach so much that Robertson fears losing him to Rangers’ first team before too long.
All the old issues from earlier this year have been effectively forgotten, most likely due to Kennedy’s part of seeing just how good Rangers are now and no longer wanting to leave.
Bayern and Man City were said to be interested in him, talk of which went quiet, but there was no denying the kid’s quality and now that he appears to no longer want to leave, Rangers may well see him as a future star given just how good he is.
We’re not sure when the new deal will be offered, but it’s good to get this monkey off our back.
