Former Glasgow Rangers manager Alex McLeish has suggested Glen Kamara could leave the Gers this summer for the Premier League.
The Lowdown: Kamara linked with exit
After playing an important role in Rangers’ Premiership title win last term, Kamara has attracted plenty of interest from south of the border.
The Latest: McLeish fears the worst
Speaking to Ibrox News, McLeish believes the £5.4m-valued 25-year-old (Transfermarkt) could leave the 55-time Scottish champions this summer. When asked whether the prospect of the Premier League would be too much to turn down for Kamara, he said:
“It would surprise me if he did get offered the chance to go to one of those clubs and he turned it down.
“Listen, we hope that he would. I’m sure he has a massive attachment to Rangers, he knows what they have done for him, but life is short.
“A lot of players won’t waste the opportunity to leave and go to a bigger league, and the Premier League is bigger.”
The Verdict: Difficult
There is no doubt it will be difficult for Ross Wilson and co to hold on to Kamara this summer, which they will surely want to do. Yes, they can offer the potential carrot of Champions League football, but they must get through two rounds to make the group stages – there is no guarantee they will be able to do that.
Will Glen Kamara be at Rangers next season?
After the last year or so, Kamara’s stock has grown massively, and that is only going to continue to do so after his Euro 2020 involvement.
Unfortunately, the Gers must prepare for the worse and plan ahead for beyond Kamara’s seemingly inevitable departure, whenever exactly that will be.
