Image for Rangers: Journalist praises player for ‘making up’ for underwhelming season

Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara has been praised for his performance in the Europa League semi-final after an ‘underwhelming season’, according to a journalist Joshua Barrie.

The Finnish midfielder joined the Glasgow team back in January 2019 and has struggled with his form since joining, with the worst of the bunch coming during their 1-0 defeat to Sparta Prague in the Europa League back in October 2021, which resulted in the player being sent off and subsequently booed by Rangers fans.

Should Rangers stick with Kamara?





However, in Ranger’s latest game against RB Leipzig in the Europa League semi-final Kamara was praised by journalist Joshua Barrie for his form and for “making up” for an underwhelming season and possibly reminding the fans of why they bought the midfielder in the first place.

He wrote on Twitter, “Glen Kamara making up for an underwhelming season tonight, a welcome reminder of why there was such excitement last year about his new contract”.

How well do you remember where Rangers' signings came in from down the years? Take our quiz to find out! First up, Carlos Pena was the Gers' most expensive arrival during the summer of 2017, but where did he join from?

TIF Thoughts on Kamara’s form…

It is no secret that Kanara has struggled for consistent form since his arrival at the Ibrox Stadium but last night’s game showed Rangers fans what he is capable of and the level he can achieve with some consistency. according to Sofascore, Kamara achieved a 7.3 rating after scoring one goal and completing 72% of his passes with one key pass, two successful long balls, two ground duels won, three aerial duels won, two interceptions, one tackle and one clearance.

However, his form throughout the season has been questionable, only racking up three goals and three assists in his 28 league appearances as well as only averaging 0.4 shots, 1.1 key passes with 1.5 bad controls per game and 0.9 times dispossessed. He also managed one tackle per game while averaging 0.8 fouls per game with 0.1 blocks, 0.4 clearances and 0.1 crosses. (Whoscored)

Kamara evidently has the ability to become a good player in Scotland but without finding consistency, having only managed 18 goals and assists in his 154 appearances for the Gers. he will struggle to reach these heights.
