Rangers flop Kevin Kyle thinks that letting Glen Kamara leave Dundee to join Rangers in January for a paltry £50,000 was a “strange decision” and the Dens Park side might have avoided relegation this season.
Kamara penned a pre-contract to join the Gers this summer at the start of the year, leading to him being frozen out at Dens Park before eventually being sold to the Steven Gerrard’s side at a bargain fee.
Kyle believes that had the Dark Blues held on to Kamara until the end of the season they’d got that sum back by staying in the top tier.
“I Ioved the boy Kamara, which is another strange decision,” Kyle told Open Goal.
“I know the £50,000 or whatever it was they got for him, that £50,000 would have been better to stay if they had stayed in the league. In the long term, they would get that money back.”
Getting him for only £50,000 was an absolute steal and Kyle is absolutely bang on the money with his assessment.
Keeping the Finn could well have made the difference for Dundee but they saw a short-term chance to make a few quid and likely cost themselves in the long run.
