McCann full of praise for 'star' Kamara

12th February 2019, 16:17 by Bobbie Jackson

Former Rangers winger Neil McCann believes new signing Glen Kamara is a "class act".

McCann worked with the 23-year-old during his time in charge of Dundee before the midfielder agreed a pre-contract move to Gers on January 5.

However, his switch to Ibrox was brought forward on January 31 after the two clubs came to an agreement, which has seen Rangers part with £50,000.

Kamara turned out in a reserve match against St Johnstone on Monday, getting 60 minutes under belt, and McCann feels he will soon be involved with the senior side.

"If he gets into the side, I think it will be very difficult to move him," McCann told BBC Scotland.

"He's a real star in the making. He's still learning the game but I just think he's a terrific footballer. He moves so well and Rangers are getting a class act.

"He will continue to improve under Steven Gerrard and dealing with the expectation levels at such a big club."
