EASTER Road wasn't big enough for the two of them when they worked together.

Florian Kamberi now finds himself on the other side of the Old Firm divide to former Hibernian boss Neil Lennon.

It is one of the twists of fate that football often throws up. This time, there really can only be one winner as Kamberi looks to inspire Rangers to the Premiership title this term.

Lennon was the man that brought Kamberi to Scottish football two years ago as the Swiss forward made the move from Grasshoppers.

There is plenty of water under the bridge in Leith and now the 24-year-old is focused on delivering success at Ibrox.

“The football world is very small and it’s funny how it works sometimes," Kamberi said after making his Rangers debut in the goalless draw with Aberdeen on Saturday.

"At one time Neil Lennon was my coach and I was scoring goals for him.

“But now he’s on one side and I’m on the other and we are trying to do the best for our respective teams.

"What I had with him is now in the past - we had a successful time together - but now I’m here and fully focused with Rangers and Steven Gerrard as my manager.

“I can’t complain about anything and I’m just delighted to be here at Ibrox."

Kamberi and Lennon enjoyed plenty of good times together at Easter Road but it was the bust-up between the pair that would set the wheels in motion for Lennon and assistant Garry Parker to leave Hibernian by 'mutual consent' last January.

Speaking about the incident earlier this year, Kamberi struck a conciliatory tone. But he is now ready to go head-to-head with his former boss in the heat of an Old Firm Premiership battle.

And asked if it would be it sweeter to win the title with Lennon in the opposite camp, Kamberi said: “Yes, of course. It is the dream of everyone to bring title number 55 home to Ibrox and every player is motivated to do that. We just have to keep believing because it would be amazing."

The move to Ibrox has given Kamberi a chance to take his career to the next level as he sets his sights on the Premiership title and the Scottish Cup this season.

His first outing ended in disappointment but he has faith in the squad that he joined on Friday evening to deliver under boss Gerrard.

Kamberi said: “At a club the size of Rangers there is much pressure and the expectation is always high because we have to win every game.

“The fans create an amazing atmosphere and we have to give them something back for that and the best thing we can do is win games and if you don’t do that then they are disappointed.

“I’m confident I have the mentality to cope with the demands at Rangers. Everyone in the dressing room is a top player and has that mentality and if they didn’t then they wouldn’t be at the club.

“We just have to keep believing in ourselves and going game per game.

"This is an opportunity for me to win medals.

“I’m a guy who loves to win and Rangers is exactly the place I want to be because there’s a lot of winners here, a lot of trophies won and it’s a chance to win titles."
