Rangers goalkeeping coach Jim Stewart says that he is delighted with the way young goalkeeper Liam Kelly’s loan is progressing at Livingston this season.
The Glasgow giants loaned out the 20-year-old goalkeeper to the Scottish League One side in the summer and the youngster has impressed with his performances at the Almondvale Stadium.
Kelly has been a key player for the club and has been integral in their rise to the top of League One, including another fine performance in their 3-0 win over Airdrieonians last weekend.
Stewart has revealed that he watched Kelly in action against Airdrieonians and was impressed with his performance in keeping a clean sheet and helping his side to an important win.
The Rangers goalkeeping coach feels the youngster’s loan spell at Livingston is progressing well and he is hopeful that Kelly will be successful in helping them to earn promotion to the Championship.
Stewart said on the Rangers Podcast when asked about Kelly: “I managed to get a chance to go and see him at the weekend.
“I went to see them on Saturday in their top of the table clash against Airdrieonians.
“Liam kept a clean sheet and performed well in the game; it was good to see that this season his loan period is working out well for him.
“It’s a good challenge for him to be at Livingston; the fact that they are favourites to go up in that league and the fact that they have gained a ten-point advantage.
“So hopefully that will continue over the season and hopefully Liam will be successful.”
A product of the Rangers academy, Kelly also had a loan spell at East Fife before joining Livingston last summer.
