Pundit Kris Commons has told The Scottish Daily Mail (The Verdict, p16, 22/04) that he thinks Glen Kamara is a 'class act' in the heart of the Rangers midfield.

The Gers made the trip to Edinburgh on Saturday afternoon, and were looking to pick up three points after an extended break due to being out of the Scottish Cup.

Steven Gerrard's side were superb at Tynecastle, as Kamara played a great ball through for Jermain Defoe to open the scoring, before Ryan Jack made it 2-0 before half time.

 

Nikola Katic added a third from a Daniel Candeias cross, but Hearts did get one back on Steven MacLean headed home Jake Mulraney's delivery, meaning Rangers left with a 3-1 win.

The victory means Celtic's title hopes are still being delayed, and Gerrard will be delighted with how his side performed in such a clinical display.

One player who really caught the eye was midfielder Kamara, who controlled the middle of the park in yet another fine display since making a January move from Dundee.

Pundit Commons has now suggested that Finland international Kamara is the best signing Rangers have made this season, praising him as 'excellent' against Hearts and feeling that he's 'class act' in the Gers engine room.

Commons did though add that he thinks Rangers need to make another midfield addition this summer, as a technically-gifted playmaker is needed a little further up the pitch, believing Gerrard will have a fine midfield at his disposal if he can land such a player.

“The best bit of business Rangers have done all season is probably pinching Glen Kamara away from Dundee,” said Commons. “He really does look a class act in the middle of the pitch. He was excellent against Hearts at Tynecastle on Saturday and if Rangers could go out and purchase a really technical No 10 with a bit of vision, they’d have the basis of a good midfield,” he added.
