Rangers surely rue £10m transfer opportunity amid player controversy

As news spreads of a bust-up between Rangers star Glen Kamara and manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst, might the Ibrox club regret not selling the player to OGC Nice in the summer?

According to reports which originated in the Athletic, Gers midfielder Kamara had a fall-out with Van Bronckhorst after the Finnish international was hooked at half-time in 1-1 draw with St Mirren.

Rangers boss Gio has a penchant for changing things at the interval – a sure fire sign of a manager under pressure – but once again it failed to herald the result.

According to the report, Glen Kamara watched Van Bronckhorst and his side toil from the inside of the tunnel in Paisley and had it out with the manager at full-time following yet more dropped points.

With Rangers now nine points behind in the title race and out of Europe already, Giovanni van Bronckhorst appears on the verge of the sack as rumours of him losing the dressing room reach fever pitch.

What Van Bronckhorst and Kamara have said about Rangers bust-up

Speaking about Glen Kamara at full-time, a spiky Van Bronckhorst said:

“I had to substitute him because I think the team needed a change with Scotty and more runs from midfield in the right position. That is all I had to say about him.”

It’s worth noting that Glen Kamara’s lawyer Aamer Anwar denies the allegations regarding a bust-up with Van Bronckhorst, saying:

“Glen Kamara is the utmost professional and has always respected the decisions the manager makes — his position is that there was absolutely no disagreement.”

As Giovanni van Bronckhorst and Rangers lose grip on an ageing squad who have consistently let the club and fans down over the last four-and-a-bit seasons, might the club rue holding onto the likes of Glen Kamara?

As reported in the likes of the Scottish Sun, the French Ligue 1 club OGC Nice had late summer interest in the Finnish international to the tune of £10m.

Having only signed a new contract last season, Rangers have the player tied down until 2025 but might now rue not cashing in on the fee when they had the chance.

With the likes of Standard Liege star Nicolas Raskin lined up as a replacement, the move eventually collapsed and Glen Kamara – a player many fans believe looks unhappy at Rangers – remains at Ibrox.

As Van Bronckhorst loses his grip on the Rangers team and squad, might he regret not taking the opportunity to move the likes of Glen Kamara on?

Meanwhile, one reported summer Ibrox target could be on the move to the tune of £8m this summer.
