Jackie McNamara was blown away by the performance of Glen Kamara for Rangers in the weekend win over Celtic at Ibrox.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the Hoops legend claimed the central midfielder is good enough for Steven Gerrard to build the side around him next season.

Kamara played the full 90 minutes of Sunday’s 2-0 win against the Scottish champions as he provided further evidence of why his January signing was a bargain.

“He is a good player, Rangers will look to build the team around him,” McNamara said. “I didn’t think there were many weaknesses in the Rangers team on the day.

“Celtic were overloaded in the midfield area, and I thought Kamara played well. He has definitely come on since he moved to Scotland. Neil McCann really improved him at Dundee.

“Some players take time to adjust when they move to Rangers or Celtic. He seems to have taken to it quite quickly. His biggest asset is his mobility on the pitch and how he gets around. You saw that with the way he set up the second goal.”

Kamara was signed by Rangers from Dundee in January for just £50,000 after they brought forward a transfer initially agreed on a pre-contract deal.

The Arsenal academy product, 23, has made 15 appearances for the Light Blues and started 11 of their last 12 league matches.
