Rangers: Van Bronckhorst must unleash Ibrox gem Glen Kamara tonight

Rangers ended their Premiership campaign with a convincing 3-1 win at the weekend and now Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side face the prospect of a UEFA Europa League final tonight.

The Gers have travelled from Ibrox for this gigantic European clash in Seville, with a trophy and Champions League football awaiting the winner of the match.

Rangers come into the game off the back of smashing Hearts with a much-changed team on Saturday as a host of first-team players were rested.

They will now need to be brought back into the side for this clash and one player who must be unleashed is Finland international Glen Kamara.

The central midfielder was not involved in the win over Hearts and must now come into the side in the middle of the park, with John Lundstram and Ryan Jack either side of him.

Should Glen Kamara start?

Yes

Yes

No

No

He was phenomenal in the second leg of the semi-final clash with RB Leipzig and proved that he can have a major influence in this competition. As per SofaScore, he won three of his five aerial duels, made two interceptions and one tackle and created one chance in 90 minutes.

The gem also produced a fine piece of skill after shrugging off two challenges to set Ryan Kent away before James Tavernier’s goal and scored a sensational strike himself, as he stroked the ball into the corner with his weak foot from 20-yards.

His former Dundee United boss Neil McCann previously hailed him as “lightning-quick” and also said: “He isn’t a big, physical lad but he’s made of iron and really strong. I knew immediately that he could handle the ball under pressure and not give it away, so he was perfect.”

What nationality does Mateusz Zukowski represent?

Rangers will need his strength in what could be a tight, cagey, affair in Seville tonight. A major European trophy is on the line and this means that both teams should be putting everything on the line to come away with the win, with these comments from McCann showing that Kamara has the requisite attributes to thrive in this type of match.

Therefore, Kamara – who has been tipped to be worth up to £10m this summer – must start in the final tonight as he has the quality Rangers need to win the match.

His performance against Leipzig shows that he has the technical proficiency to make a huge impact in the final third, whilst the quotes from his former boss prove that he has the mentality and physicality to handle a competitive clash with Frankfurt.

He can be the match-winner for the Gers with these qualities and that is why van Bronckhorst must unleash him from the start.
