We at Ibrox Noise would like some quick feedback on putting Stephen Kelly into the mix for the upcoming game against Alashkert.

He was only on the field for 10 minutes against Dunfermline, but after slipping into the defensive midfield slot there was far greater cohesion between the defensive line and the rest of the midfield

And aside from his speed on the ball, and his ability to go past players, he also gives a far greater attacking threat than Glen Kamara, who he replaced.

It is clear as day that just like Nathan Patterson his positional play is mature for his years, and as an option for Ryan Jack he is currently the best option we have.

And intuitive defensive cover, for the back line, is one thing we’ve been sorely missing in our last few games.

So what do you think…?

Should we shake the team up and put Stephen Kelly in for the upcoming Europa League play-off, or should we go for silky smooth Glen Kamara?

We would like to hear your thoughts on this one.

  1. I thing it would be better just too stick with Kamara as he has more experience in Euro games. Also think too see Patterson getting game time there as well.

  2. I thought Kamara was brilliant the other night however, does he not still have some of his ban to serve?
    Regardless, Kelly in my opinion was the stand out performer of pre season. I’d have no doubts that if the Gaffer selects him he will continue to show, just like Patterson, that sometimes it’s worth giving youth a chance.

  3. 5 days after Malmo kicked us out of the Champions League is no time to talk about taking gambles. Play your best and most experienced team. I think the players we missed most against Malmo were Kamara and Jack but unfortunately neither can play.
