Rangers loanee Kai Kennedy looking forward to televised Fife derby

He’ll get to show what he can do in front of the television cameras – but Rangers loanee Kai Kennedy insists goals and assists are his key aims at Raith Rovers.

The attacker signed a new contract at Rangers before heading out on loan to Raith Rovers in the winter. He has been in good form for John McGlynn’s side, playing a key role as they moved second in the Championship with a 3-1 win over Alloa Athletic on Saturday.

Dunfermline come next at Stark’s Park in a huge match in the race for a Championship promotion play-off spot at least. It’ll be broadcast live on the BBC and the Rangers loanee is hoping to build on his performance against the Wasps.

He said: “It’s been easy coming into the squad. They are a bunch of boys who help and they are all lads who help. I think I have settled in quite well and you can tell why the team wins. I’ve settled in quite well.

“I want to get goals and assists to get my stats up. I am happy with the assist but a goal would have been better. I am always looking to do my best and that is why I came here, to help the team hopefully go for promotion.

“I think the boys played excellent against Alloa and I was always looking to take players on. I got the assist that I wanted. Every game we take it as it comes and we know Dunfermline will want to bounce back from defeat (against Queen of the South). It’s going to be a tough game and I will be ready. Hopefully I get a few goals and assists.”
