Rangers star could’ve played last game for club after Hibs snub

Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara was left out of the squad amid much uncertainty surrounding his future with Ligue 1 OGC Nice heading the list of clubs tailing the Finnish international.

That’s according to 90min, who claim that ex-Dundee star Kamara could be set to leave Ibrox after three-and-a-half years with the club.

According to that report, Giovanni van Bronckhorst opted to leave Glen Kamara out amid the speculation with the Ligue 1 club now “lining up” an offer for the player.

This comes amid links to Premier League Brighton with 90min claiming that the player was also subject to two bids from Galatasaray and that Besiktas and Salernitana are also interested.

With Kamara contracted to Ibrox until 2025, Rangers can expect to recoup a decent fee for the former Arsenal academy kid with Glen a 46-times capped international.

Interestingly, if the midfielder was to move to France, then he would be hooking up with polarising former Rangers star Aaron Ramsey, the Welshman moving to Nice after his release from Juventus earlier in the window.

With close friends Joe Aribo (Southampton) and Calvin Bassey (Ajax) also moving on in the summer perhaps Glen Kamara has his eyes on the exit door at Rangers.

The player has also not always been first choice under Giovanni van Bronckhorst and if the Gers can recoup a decent fee perhaps this would be a good move for everyone involved.

That said, on his day Glen Kamara is a player of wonderful talent and we can’t help but feel we haven’t got the best of him in recent months.

Kamara has previously spoken about his future in the press and suggested that if the right option comes along he would be open to it.

“When I played against Rangers at first, I thought the level was good, but I wanted to go to England because the level is even better,” said Kamara [YLE, via Daily Record].

“But when I came to Rangers, I realised that the level is really high and that this is the best place to develop.

“I would never say that I wouldn’t go and play elsewhere in Europe. I would like to play in the Premier League, but if there was somewhere else that would be good for me, I would go there.”

Meanwhile, do the Rangers board need to look at themselves for the mounting pressure that is on the club’s shoulders this campaign?
