RHYS BREEN has backed Kai Kennedy to make the most of his ‘scary’ talent at Dunfermline thanks to his Rangers schooling.

The pair came through the ranks together at Ibrox before Breen joined Dunfermline on a permanent deal in the summer.

He was quickly followed on loan by Kennedy, who lit up Saturday’s 3-3 draw with Queen of the South with a first goal for the Pars and two assists.

The winger has had to wait for his chance since the arrival of John Hughes as manager last month.

But Breen reckons his pal can flourish now he has broken back into the team.

The defender said: “Kai had struggled to get in the squad but we had a bounce game against Hibs and he got three goals.

“The talent that he has is scary. Not a lot of people have that kind of talent.

“I am happy for him to get the goal and then the two assists. I feel like he deserves it and hopefully he can keep himself in the squad.

“It is just that kind of spark that he has. There are only a handful of players that I have seen with that.

“It comes through in training. He is a hard working lad and I feel that is the mentality side that comes from Rangers.

“He has come here and shown a great attitude. It was hard for him to get into the squad but now that he is in I feel that he can do a lot more for us.”
