Glasgow Rangers have now been backed to lose Glen Kamara by Frank McAvennie, despite him signing a new deal at Ibrox.
The Lowdown: Kamara deal
Steven Gerrard’s team confirmed on Wednesday that Kamara has signed a new contract, keeping him with the Light Blues until 2025.
Should Rangers sell Kamara?
However, sources from Ibrox have told Football Insider that the Gers have protected the value of the central midfield player with the new deal, but there is an agreement in place that he will be allowed to leave at a certain price.
The Latest: McAvennie on Kamara
Speaking to Football Insider, former Scottish Premiership striker now pundit McAvennie has now claimed that Kamara will still go in next summer’s transfer window despite his new contract:
“All this means is whoever buys him has to pay more money.
“That’s all it means. It makes no difference to whether he will stay or go. I’m sure he will go, maybe not in the winter, next summer.
“Rangers have done well to tie him down and Kamara is a class act for letting them do that.
“But in Scottish football, if the right money comes in, the player will go. Nothing has changed.
“Unfortunately that’s the way. Kamara is one of the better players and the Rangers fans will be delighted.
“He doesn’t do much wrong, the boy. It’s a great move by the club but it makes no difference to whether he stays or goes.”
The Verdict: Inevitable
Unfortunately for RFC fans, it is inevitable that Kamara will go eventually, especially if a club from the Premier League come calling.
Football Insider reported earlier this month that Arsenal made a move to try and re-sign him during the summer, and a number of other sides in the English top flight were interested in his signature.
At 25 years of age, Kamara does not have many big moves left in his career, and the chance to play in the Premier League may be too tempting to turn down.
Nonetheless, Rangers must keep hold of him for as long as they possibly can, and when the time comes, the new deal means that they can demand a reasonable transfer fee.
