Michael Beale has confirmed that one or two more Rangers players could be leaving the club this summer with Glen Kamara the closest to the exit door.

The Finland international has barely been seen at Ibrox or Auchenhowie and has been the subject of intense speculation.

The Rangers manager was open in the pre-match press conference for the trip to Dingwall to face Ross County and explained what the situation was with Glen Kamara, as seen on Rangers TV.

Rangers boss gives Glen Kamara exit clarity

The 27-year old has been a good servant for Rangers and Glen Kamara is worth considerably more than the £50,000 it took to bring him from Dundee.

A valuation of over £5m is now said to be the number clubs need to hit.

Speaking ahead of today’s trip to the Highlands, the Gers boss said:

“We had an honest conversation when I first came back into the club about Glen’s future and where he saw it. I think 10 out of the first 11 games he started.

“In that time we signed Todd Cantwell and Nico Raskin but they came in after not playing for a period of time.

“They got in the team and done really, really well, so there’s been no fall out or anything.

“I think we were expecting Glen to move this summer and it was his wish as well.

“There’s no issue with that.

“He’s got to find the right club and it’s got to be the right valuation for everyone because we would be losing a very good player.

“When a player sees their future elsewhere then, as a coach, you have to move in a different direction and so wasn’t in the mood for persuading anyone to play for Rangers.”

Many Rangers fans probably would have expected to sell Glen Kamara last summer off the back of a good European Championships and then a series of fine performances in the Europa League.

A £10m link to Ligue 1 never came to anything and the stories at the time suggested that the signing of Nicolas Raskin was delayed because Rangers couldn’t sell Glen Kamara.

The frustration now is that Rangers are paying a good wage for a player who isn’t available and Michael Beale will be wanting the money in so he can consider strengthening in other areas.

The longer Kamara is at the club, the less time the Gers boss has to get who he wants.
