Inverness were in Championship action on Friday night, and they comfortably defeated Queen of the South 3-0 at Palmerston. It was an emphatic win for John Robertson’s side, who move up to fourth place in the league table.
One player who stood out for Inverness in the win was Rangers loanee Kai Kennedy. The 18-year-old showed composure and skill that many older players would be proud of when he scored the opening goal for Inverness.
Scored from difficult angle
Kennedy’s goal, which gave Inverness the lead was excellent. He beat Willie Gibson on the by-line then squeezed the ball into the net and through the goalkeeper’s legs from an acute angle for his first goal for the club.
It really was an excellent piece of play from the player. Kennedy does seem to be a very talented player. Indeed, the Daily Record reported that Premier League side Sheffield United were interested in signing him before the transfer window closed in October.
Player has plenty of potential
Arguably, that shows how much potential Kennedy has, that a Premier League team was interested in signing an 18-year-old who has yet to make the breakthrough into the Rangers first-team.
Still, at the moment the player is at Inverness. That can only benefit them in their push to return to the Premiership.
Kennedy is only on loan at Inverness until January. John Robertson will be hoping that the deal can be extended until the end of the season. That will be up to the player. However, if he is enjoying his football and playing regularly then there is no reason the deal can’t be extended.
