Rangers star included in special UEFA "showcase" after latest exploits

Rangers star Glen Kamara has been highlighted in a special UEFA skills showcase for a flick the on-form midfielder did in the 2-0 win over Lech Poznan.

Finnish international Kamara, 25, has been one of the stand-out performers for Rangers on the European stage this season and was once again fantastic in Poland.

The clip above – posted on the official UEFA Europa League Twitter account – highlights a deft little backheel flick to Ianis Hagi in the second-half of the match. You’ll see it about 12 seconds in.

It pretty sums up the confidence which is oozing out of Kamara this season as transfer talk heats up about his future.

As many as 13 clubs were previously linked with a move for the ex-Arsenal Academy kid including the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Everton and Southampton [TEAMtalk].

Since then the midfielder has also been linked with the likes of Premier League Brighton [Rincon Escoses] and Europa League group rivals Benfica [TEAMtalk].

It’s little wonder Rangers boss Steven Gerrard is determined to get the midfielder tied down on a new deal as soon as possible.

“I thought Glen Kamara, again, showed why everyone’s talking about him and why there’s a lot of fuss about him,” said Gerrard after the Poznan clash [RangersTV].

“I thought he was outstanding from start to finish and my advice to the club is to move that situation along as quickly as they can.”

Kamara famously joined Rangers from Dundee for a fee of around £50k in January 2019 [Glasgow Times] and over the last two years has developed into a midfielder of the highest quality.

Comfortable in possession, Kamara is always an option for the team and has a real ability at creating space, keeping possession and finding teammates.

Out of possession, the player’s off-the-ball intelligence is a huge factor as to why he plays pretty much every high-profile match for the club.

The Gers certainly don’t want to lose one of their key men in Glen Kamara but how do the club’s intentions match up with the comments of ex-chairman Dave King?
