According to Sky Sports’ Charles Paterson (Transfer Centre, 04/01/2021, 13.55), Glasgow Rangers manager Steven Gerrard’s priority this January is tying Glen Kamara down to a long-term contract.
New Kamara deal the priority
Kamara signed for the Gers in January 2019 on a four-year deal, with his contract set to run out in the summer of 2023. Gerrard, though, is keen to see him put pen to paper on a new agreement.
So much so, securing the future of the Finland international is said to be Gerrard’s priority during a month in which the Ibrox outfit will be looking to hold on to all of their best players.
Hopefully sorted soon
In what has been a fantastic season for the Gers so far this campaign – they lead the Premiership by 19 points, are in to the Europa League round of 32 and have lost just one match all season – Kamara has been a key member of the first-team. He has played in all but four of their games in all competitions, scoring twice.
He was the subject of interest from Ligue 1 side Marseille during the previous transfer window, while The Athletic say that he is worth £10m at the moment. Previously called a “class act” by Gerrard, the last thing the 54-time Scottish champions will want is Kamara leaving any time soon. An enticing contract offer should convince the former Dundee man to stay put for the time being.
