Former Rangers captain Barry Ferguson has come in for criticism from Gers fans for his valuation of Ibrox midfielder Glen Kamara amid links to the Premier League.

Finnish international Kamara, 25, has been extensively linked with a range of teams down south and across Europe over the last 18 months with his stock rising considerably after Euro 2020.

A former Arsenal Academy graduate, Mirror journalist Graeme Bailey claimed that the Gunners were considering a return for the player.

Premier League newboys Watford were also linked to the ex-Dundee player, who famously cost Rangers £50k after signing from the Dens Park club in January 2019.

But whilst Rangers fans don’t want to lose their best players there is an acceptance that if the price is right then the club’s best talent will be moved on.

For Barry Ferguson, this could be as low as £7m.

“Having snapped Kamara up for £50k – which might be the most ridiculous pound-for-pound signing the club ever made – it might be difficult to knock back offers of around £7m for a guy who walked into the Euros in a Finland shirt and looked as if he belongs at that level,” wrote Ferguson in the Daily Record.

With scarce context other than a comparison with Glen’s original transfer fee, many Rangers fans were disappointed to read a club legend lowballing the club’s top talent:

At the moment Glen has consistently reiterated his commitment to Ibrox whilst manager Steven Gerrard is eager to get the player tied down on improved terms.

But should the right offer come in for the Finnish midfielder, then there’s a £30m reason why it wouldn’t be a disaster if Glen moved on.
