Glenn Kamara proved to be the thorn in his old team’s side in Glasgow as Rangers faced Dundee in the Scottish Premiership at a bitterly cold Ibrox on Wednesday as he starred in the 4-0 win.
Kamara, who joined Rangers in the January transfer window opened the scoring with four minutes on the clock. Unmarked in the box from a in-swinging free kick from skipper James Tavernier, Karama met the cross to volley past the goalkeeper in the bottom left hand corner of the goal and put Rangers in the driving seat.
Rangers skipper James Tavernier made his own mark on the game three minutes later with a right footed shot from the centre of the penalty area into the bottom left corner of the goal to double Rangers’ advantage.
The in-form Alfredo Morelos added a third 15 minutes later with a right footed shot from close range into the bottom left hand corner of the net, to the dismay of the Dundee team and supporters who could be seen leaving after the Colombian’s strike hit the back of the net.

Rangers continued the second half just like they started the first in control of everything on the pitch, hounding the Dundee defence for the majority of the second half with the Gers knocking on the door on multiple occasions.
In the sixty-fifth minute, Rangers made their second change of the game with Jermaine Defoe replaces Daniel Candieas.
With twenty minutes to go, the first yellow card of the match was shown to Darren O’Dea for a bad, late timed foul on Ryan Kent.
In the dying embers of the game, substitute Jermaine Defoe netted his first and Rangers’ fourth goal of the match. Running in behind the defence to meet Ryan Jack’s through pass, he held off O’ Dea and fired the ball into the top corner from a tight angle.
