‘Reminded Me Of A Young Barry Ferguson’ ‘Looked Good Again’ Fans Impressed With Rangers Ace Despite Friendly Loss

Rangers were pretty poor in their 1-0 friendly defeat to Tranmere Rovers at the weekend, but midfielder Stephen Kelly was one of the few bright lights.

The 21-year-old impressed after coming on as a second-half substitute at Prenton Park and supporters on Twitter were keen to point out his performance after the game in their post-match analysis:

Kelly did catch the eye despite playing in a struggling Ross County side last season during a loan spell and he has obviously come back to his parent club this summer having gained valuable experience.

However, it is one thing being able to do it in a friendly, and quite another when you are asked to perform in a competitive match. With Champions League qualifiers coming up very soon, it will be interesting to see whether Kelly is handed an opportunity or whether manager Steven Gerrard feels he isn’t quite ready to make the step up.
