Former Leeds United and Rangers striker Ross McCormack is backing Glen Kamara to swap Ibrox for Elland Road before the transfer window closes in a fortnight’s time.

While Rangers boss Mick Beale this week played down reports suggesting that Glen Kamara was on his way south of the border, that does not mean that the situation will not change between now and September 1st.

As the always-reliable Fabrizio Romano explains, in conversation with Give Me Sport, Kamara is a player Leeds ‘appreciate’.

“It’s a name they have discussed internally at the club,” Romano adds. “It’s true (Leeds) have his name on the list.”

Leeds United like Rangers misfit Glen Kamara

Rangers certainly won’t stand in Kamara’s way should Leeds step up their interest. Beale insists that the one-time Arsenal man is ‘definitely going to move on’, and McCormack believes that a Leeds side crying out for some additions after a turbulent summer would be getting a superb £5 million addition (Yorkshire Evening Post).

“Every single game Glen plays he’s at least a 7.5 out of 10. He doesn’t give the ball away and he’d give (Leeds) great stability,” McCormack, who started his career at Rangers but enjoyed his best days in Yorkshire, tells the Daily Mail.

“He’s more than good enough for the level.”

17-year-old Archie Gray has been a bright spark in a difficult start to the campaign for Daniel Farke’s men. McCormack, meanwhile, believes the uber-talented teenager would only benefit from having a more experienced campaigner like Kamara alongside him.


“He’s got over 50 caps, and played regularly for Rangers in Europe. What he can pass on to young players like Gray is invaluable,” McCormack adds.

“Glen would be a great addition. He’d have a steadying influence; a good pro that could lead by example and help keep everyone together.

“Defensive midfielders aren’t really recognised as stars in the Championship but he can really help the young boys around the team.

“I thought he’d be perfect for Michael Beale at Rangers. But it’s obviously not working out there, and he more than deserves the chance to return to England after the service he’s given the club.

“If they get a few million, it’s a good deal for all parties. It’s definitely worth Leeds taking the chance.”

Kamara has not kicked a ball in anger so far in 2023/24. He is further down the pecking order than ever before at Ibrox; Kieran Dowell and Jose Cifuentes joining January recruit Nicolas Raskin in Glasgow.
