Report claims Rangers fear losing midfield linchpin in January

Rangers ‘fear’ losing midfield star Glen Kamara in January when the transfer window opens, according to a report.

TeamTalk claim that Gers boss Steven Gerrard is ‘desperate’ to secure  new contract for the 24-year-old after his recent stunning from with Leeds United, Dinamo Moscow, Dynamo Kiev, Burnley, Brighton, Newcastle, Sheffield United, Brentford, Everton, Southampton, Monaco, Lille and Borussia Dortmund all named as suitors.

Kamara has been excellent this season and has wowed fans with his performances in recent weeks as Gerrard’s side have opened up a six-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership and kicked off their Europa League campaign with four wins and four clean sheets.

The Finnish international has two years left on his current contract and Gerrard has spoken publicly about wanting to get a new offer on the table for him to extend his stay at Ibrox, emphatically stating that he was “not going anywhere.”

“Glen Kamara is not going anywhere,” the Gers boss said, as quoted by the Glasgow Times. “We are going to offer Glen a new contract when the time is right. The plan was always to get this window out of the way before we spoke about that. Glen is aware of that.”

“We love Glen Kamara here. He is a fantastic player. We believe Glen is capable of playing for most teams out there at any level. He is that talented. In terms of what we think of Glen, we want him to stay and be part of this in the short and long term.”

After joining the Light Blues for £50,000 from Dundee, Kamara’s value now must be through the roof after his performances for both Rangers and his country.
