Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara has spoken out amid reported transfer interest from multiple Premier League clubs, as quoted by the Daily Record.
Kamara joined the Gers for a meagre fee of £50,000 a year ago and is contracted at Ibrox until 2023.
“The manager hasn’t spoken to me about the speculation at all,” he said, as quoted by the Daily Record. “I’m a Rangers player, so until told otherwise that is my focus. Coming up to Scotland was definitely one of my best decisions.”
“I wanted to get game-time under my belt and it has worked out well.
“We are trying to win the title. We are looking forward to that and it is an exciting time to be a Rangers player.”
Kamara stopped short of guaranteeing that he’ll still be a Ger by the end of the transfer window, but these comments are encouraging.
There has been no dialogue with Steven Gerrard, but the player is clearly happy with how things are going at Ibrox, and why wouldn’t he be?
Of course, the lure of the Premier League is strong.
Yet, the 24-year-old is already at a massive club, who are eyeing up the Scottish Premiership title and are still competing in the Europa League.
If he were to leave for a Brighton or a Crystal Palace, there’d be no potential silverware, no European football. If he headed for Arsenal, despite all their recent struggles, there’d be no guarantee of playing time. With Euro 2020 on the horizon, the latter is a risk he certainly can’t afford to take.
Rangers have made it clear they won’t be in the business of offloading key first-team players this month [Scottish Herald] and based on these comments, it looks as though Kamara will be happy to stay in Glasgow.
