If ever a Rangers exit was justified with the benefit of hindsight, it’s the departure of Albanian Swiss striker Florian Kamberi.

Many fans advocated a bigger role for the former Hibs man, and were impressed by what they saw from the forward, Ibrox Noise included.

Indeed, many expected the loan signing to be made permanent even though he scored just the once with two assists during his time in Govan, but if ever Stevie’s judgement was justified, this subsequent flop would be it.

Now at Aberdeen, following his return to St Gallen, since his leaving Ibrox (and even including), the hitman has a diabolical return of two goals in 30 appearances with three assists.

If ever numbers justified not signing a player permanently, it would be these.

At Aberdeen Kamberi has just one goal and one assist in 12 Dons outings, while his return at St Gallen delivered literally nothing.

We admit it – we saw something in this player – we were impressed by that corking goal at McDiarmid Park and his overall workrate, but the proof is in the pudding, and Steven Gerrard and Rangers’ management are in the position they’re in because they make judgements on players like Kamberi.

He’s another one they definitely got right.

  1. Add Kamberi to the ever increasing list of players that we should’ve kept according to (more than) some fans, e.g. McCrorie, Docherty, Jones, Hardie to name a few. Maybe we should just accept that the management team know what they are doing.
