Former Rangers boss Steven Gerrard may well have eyes on Glen Kamara after Aston Villa midfielder Marvelous Nakamba could miss the rest of the season with a serious knee injury [TheAthletic].

Nakamba has been in excellent form for Villa since Gerrard took over the side in November, featuring in the first five matches of the new era in which they won three times.

The player will miss the upcoming African Cup of Nations following his injury and this is a massive blow for the club as they look to continue moving in the right direction.

Could this injury prompt Gerrard into moving for Kamara? The Finnish midfielder was arguably one of his finest signings whilst at the Ibrox side and he can thrive in the English Premier League.


This is not the first time Kamara has been linked to Villa. He was already attracting interest from down south prior to the Englishman moving to the Midlands [DailyRecord].

After this latest injury blow, the 41-year-old will see Kamara as the perfect replacement for Nakamba and could well be enticed to move for him in the January transfer window.

The midfielder recently signed a new contract at Ibrox until 2025, therefore if any move was to materialise, Giovanni van Bronckhorst can command a high transfer fee which may well put Villa off.

There is no doubt the 26-year-old will eventually move on from Rangers. With the new project being installed by van Bronckhorst at Ibrox, there is hope he can stay and remain a key figure as we enter a new era.

In other news, a former Rangers captain has backed Gio and his team to go on and win title number 56 this season.
