Kamara dreaming of Europa progress
Glen Kamara says he "could never have dreamt a year ago" that he would be on the verge of reaching the Europa League group stage with Rangers.
The Gers will head into the second-leg of their playoff round tie with Legia Warsaw at Ibrox on Thursday looking well placed to make it through to the group stage of Europe’s secondary competition for the second successive year following last week’s 0-0 draw in Poland.
A number of Steven Gerrard’s squad were involved in last season’s European exploits, but midfielder Kamara did not join until January and he admits he never could have imagined being in this position after spending the first half of last term battling against relegation with Dundee.
“I’d be delighted [to play in the group stages]. You want to be at Rangers and play in all the big games, like this week. I’d be excited,” Kamara was quoted as saying by the Glasgow Evening Times.
“I could never have dreamt a year ago I’d be part of this now. I’m delighted to be here now and hopefully I can contribute.”
The Finland international has featured in six of Rangers’ Europa League qualifiers to date this term and he feels there is enough quality within the squad to get the job done on Thursday night.
“I’d just say the team’s got stronger,” the 23-year-old added. “We’ve got a good few signings here and the competition’s strong. It’s a tough, good team.”
