Rangers legend Barry Ferguson believes Glen Kamara and Ryan Jack have taken their games to a whole new level this season, in quotes reported by the Daily Record.

Despite ending the season trophy-less, Rangers have made great strides in their first campaign with Steven Gerrard at the helm and, boasting a mix of experience and youthful talent, they look set to pose a threat to Celtic’s domination next season.

The Gers might already have one of the league’s most impressive midfield partnerships in Kamara and Jack. The former has shone since arriving from Dundee in January while the latter, who joined on a free from Aberdeen in 2017, scored a winner against Celtic back in December.

 

And Ferguson, who knows what it takes to succeed in the Rangers engine room having enjoyed two successful spells at Ibrox, believes Kamara and Jack have gone from strength to strength alongside more experienced players like Steven Davis and Jermain Defoe.

“I’ve seen the likes of Ryan Jack and Glen Kamara taking their games to a different level. That’s what happens when younger or less experienced players have someone around they can look up to,” Ferguson said.

“You can almost see them thinking, ‘Wow! I want to go with these guys (Davis and Defoe). I want to operate on the same level as they do’.”

Rangers paid a combined £100,000 for Kamara and Jack (Scottish Sun), intelligently moving in to swoop as their contracts at Dundee and Aberdeen ran down.

It remains to be seen whether Gerrard and director of football Mark Allen will be looking to raid any more Premiership rivals this summer.
