Rangers fans react to signing of Glen Kamara from Dundee

Finally, Glen Kamara is a Rangers player.
It had looked to be a quiet Deadline Day at Ibrox, before an official announcement came last night.

Of course, there was never any danger of missing out entirely on Kamara.
He had already signed a pre-contract agreement with the club and was set to join in July.
Yet, clearly, both the Gers and Dundee wanted to get this one over the line early.
As is shown by the SPFL’s official list of transfers, The Dee have strengthened their squad numbers considerably this month. It looks as though they were keen to get the Finn off the wage bill.

For Rangers, it was already abundantly clear they wanted the player. Therefore, the sooner the better.
The Evening Standard had reported earlier in the week, that a deal worth £50,000 could go through before the window closed.
A club insider also Tweeted yesterday, to the same effect.
However, it wasn’t until much later that word came through.

Kamara signed a four-and-a-half year contract.
He is available for Rangers’ Scottish Cup run, which is an added bonus. Dundee excluded him from their squad against Queen of the South in the Fourth Round, to prevent cup tie.
Most Bears appear to be pleased with the new addition, and welcomed the 23-year-old to the club.
