Rangers star insists Premier League giants can't offer what Gers have at Ibrox

Rangers star Glen Kamara has admitted that he’d like to test himself in England’s Premier League one day – but insists that Ibrox is the best place for him to develop.

Kamara has regularly been linked with a return to English football and confessed he had previously dismissed the idea of leaving Dundee to join one of the Old Firm before his move to Ibrox in 2018.

It was only once he moved to Ibrox that the Finland star realised the standards needed to succeed at Ibrox as he claimed that nowhere else has the same atmosphere as there is at Ibrox.

“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,” Kamara said in an interview with Finnish broadcaster YLE.

“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.

“A lot of my friends have come to Rangers to watch the games. They say they’ve been to Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool or Everton, but you can’t get this atmosphere anywhere else.

“If we win, we can go anywhere, but if we lose, we should probably stay at home.

“At this club, you have to win every match against anyone. If we were playing Real Madrid, the fans would say come on, you have to win. It’s pretty cool.

“The first reason I came here was because of manager Steven Gerrard. Everyone knows him as a player. I told my mates back then that I would never sign for Celtic or Rangers because I wanted to go back to London or England.

“But when Gerrard called, I got the feeling that this is the place for me.”

Massive season ahead for Kamara at Rangers amid Premier League interest

The Finnish international faces a massive 12 months ahead as the Light Blues aim to win back the Premiership title and secure qualification for the Champions League.

Having been used in a more attacking role towards the end of the season, we could see more of Kamara as a number 10 in the new campaign.

The emergence of the likes of Charlie McCann and Alex Lowry will provide even more competition for places in the side but Kamara’s quality should see him continue to be a key player for Gio van Bronckhorst’s side.

While Premier League sides continue to sniff around Kamara, hitting the ground running this season is vital for the Light Blues.
