Rangers have received a big boost after exit linked Ibrox star Glen Kamara set his sights on winning a second Premiership title with the club.

Kamara has been a strong performer for Steven Gerrard since joining the club for the meagre fee of £50,000 from Dundee in January 2019.

His 2020/21 campaign was extra impressive, though, as he starred in both domestic and European competition.

The Finland international’s exploits have attracted attention, with multiple Premier League clubs including Brighton, Southampton, Leeds United, Burnley and Watford all credited with interest in recent times [Daily Mail].

However, when asked about his future ahead of Euro 2020, he shut down the transfer speculation and suggested he has more work to do at Ibrox.

“I’m a Rangers player until told otherwise,” he said [Daily Record]. “I’m not focused on anything else, it’s been really good (at Rangers).”

“We just won the league unbeaten and had a good European run, so I’m not really focused on anything else. My focus is on Finland right now.

“The club’s on the up and everyone is looking forward to next season. We want to go and retain that title.”

These comments will be music to the ears of Rangers fans, as Kamara staying on at Ibrox would be a big boost to the club’s aims of winning a 56th top-flight crown and making further progress in Europe next season.

In late 2020, Gerrard expressed his desire for the silky midfielder to be tied down to a new deal and while that hasn’t happened as yet [Daily Record], the Gers are still in a relatively strong position regarding his future.

Kamara’s current deal runs until 2023 and given that he’s still only 25, he should command a substantial fee if and when the club decide that they are ready to cash in.

In other news, Rangers fans were left fuming on Tuesday following an official SPFL announcement.
