Gers fans have sparked something of an online rivalry with their Gala counterparts in recent seasons and there was much chatter as the 26-year-old Finnish international was linked with the Istanbul side.
Interestingly, these claims appear to have originated in the ordinarily reputable Daily Mail sports desk who claim that Glen Kamara was the subject of £7m interest from Turkey.
The report suggests that this fee was considered “competitive” in Turkey despite the midfielder having only signed a new deal tying him to Ibrox until 2025 last season.
These claims were then backed up by journalist Graeme Bailey and 90min who believe that the player was actually subject to an official offer.
This report claims that the Galatasaray bid for Glen Kamara was actually £8m and that Premier League Brighton, Ligue 1 Marseille and Bundesliga pair RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt are also interested.
Reports linking Galatasaray to Rangers’ Glen Kamara rubbished
But for Rangers fans biting their fingernails over the prospect of losing their 50 grand man, club insiders and media partners Heart & Hand have since rubbished the interest.
Taking to Twitter – and invoking that aforementioned rivalry we spoke of – shots were fired as H&H claimed that Rangers are yet to receive any offer for the player.
The “small club” reference is in relation to a continuing online spat where Rangers fans bait their Galatasaray rivals with the jibe on Twitter.

Rangers fans will certainly have one eye on the situation with Glen Kamara and Galatasaray and will be hoping to keep the midfielder around after losing key player Joe Aribo.
A close teammate of Glen’s, Kamara is also set to lose another dressing room buddy in Calvin Bassey with the Nigerian international set to move to Ajax.
If the price is right then we suspect Rangers will do business for any one of their players but for £7m-£8m, Rangers likely won’t be dealing with Galatasaray when it comes to Glen Kamara.
Besides, we’re not even sure such a small club could afford the Finnish international’s asking price anyway…
Meanwhile, one young player linked to Rangers appears to have turned down the opportunity to move to Celtic, according to reports.
