Kenny Dalglish Lauds Rangers’ New Signing Sam Lammers

In an exclusive interview with The Sunday Post, former Liverpool and Scotland legend Sir Kenny Dalglish expressed his admiration for Rangers’ latest acquisition, Sam Lammers, hailing the Dutch striker as a “talented” addition to the team. Lammers, who previously played for Atalanta, recently completed a £3 million transfer to the Scottish club on a four-year deal, a move that has been met with anticipation and excitement among the fans.

Dalglish, renowned for his astute analysis of the game, voiced his confidence in Lammers’ ability to make an immediate impact at Ibrox. He also speculated that Rangers’ manager, Michael Beale, would likely make further changes to the squad, aiming to create a formidable team capable of dethroning their arch-rivals Celtic.

“Sam Lammers has just put pen to paper on a £3 million transfer from Atalanta,” Dalglish wrote in his column. “The talented Dutchman is expected to spearhead the Gers attack, but can also operate just in behind the main striker.”

The football legend went on to praise Beale’s proactive approach in the transfer market, emphasizing the importance of early signings in building a competitive squad. Dalglish’s remarks echoed the sentiments of the Rangers faithful, who have expressed their delight at the club’s recent signings, including Jack Butland, Dujon Sterling, and Kieran Dowell.

However, Dalglish acknowledged that with the arrival of new faces, certain players may need to depart to maintain squad balance. Notably, the departures of key figures such as Allan McGregor, Filip Helander, Scott Arfield, Ryan Kent, and Alfredo Morelos following the expiration of their contracts have left voids that need to be filled.

“Michael will be pleased with the early moves, and he will feel they are ready to really challenge and, ultimately, take the title away from Celtic,” Dalglish remarked. “But there may be one or two departures from the first-team squad, so it remains to be seen how the exact make-up of what he has to work with looks like.”

While Lammers’ goal-scoring record at Atalanta may raise some eyebrows, with only two goals in 33 Serie A appearances last season, Dalglish urged the fans to trust the manager’s judgment. He emphasized that Beale’s knowledge and expertise should not be underestimated when evaluating the potential of new signings.

As the new season approaches, Rangers fans can anticipate an exciting and fiercely competitive squad, combining established talent with fresh faces like Sam Lammers. With the guidance of astute minds like Kenny Dalglish and the unwavering support of the Ibrox faithful, the Gers aim to reclaim their position at the top of Scottish football.
