Steven Davis’ Rangers link has been the talk of the day so far. But does Rangers’ apparent interest in him mean that Glen Kamara won’t be going to Ibrox?
All of a sudden, it seems to be a different player being linked with Rangers every day. International breaks tend to bring a bunch of rumors to the fore, but Rangers are apparently genuinely interested in one or both of these midfielders.
The one that stands out to Gers fans will be Davis. He had a highly successful period at Ibrox under Walter Smith and won three titles-in-a-row. Out of the two linked players, you have to imagine Davis is the one on Steven Gerrard’s radar.
Surely, if that is the case, then that puts an end to speculation regarding Dundee’s Kamara.
Rangers are far too stacked in that area of the pitch to start stockpiling more players in January. Whilst Davis would be expected to come in and immediately fight for a place in the side, you couldn’t say the same about Kamara. He would most likely join up with the squad and be a squad-player.
An unnecessary signing
Rangers don’t need another midfield squad-player, and therefore going for Davis should signal an end to Kamara’s Rangers hopes.
You also have to question the logic in going for someone like Kamara who has so many interested parties courting him. Celtic as well as several Championship clubs in England are apparently interested in the Dees midfielder. With competition so high, there’s no point in battling for his signature.
Meanwhile, you have Davis whose sights seem firmly set on a move back to Ibrox. His previous comments about why he left and that he wants to return one day make this a certainty to be done in January.
With Southampton not playing him anywhere near enough, their loss could be Rangers’ gain.
It’s also worth considering what the likes of Graham Dorrans, Greg Docherty, and Andy Halliday would be thinking. As if the arrival of Davis wouldn’t seem ominous enough, bringing in Kamara would raise their eyebrows.
Davis is the one Rangers fans want. He’s the one that Rangers arguably need. If it goes ahead, then it has to be bye-bye to the Kamara rumors.
