Rangers look all but set to announce the departure of Glen Kamara from Rangers as the midfielder’s rumoured exit nears.

Leeds United have long been considered as the favourites to land the 27-year old in a deal which looks like being an outstanding one for a player who was no longer considered a regular starter.

Officially, it isn’t quite over the line, however, Heart and Hand’s reaction to the news that Rangers are finally selling Glen Kamara and The Sun’s claims that negotiations are at an “advanced stage” suggests that it is almost a done deal.

Writing on X, David Edgar of the fan media outlet said of the Finland international’s impending departure:

“£5.5m for Glen Kamara is a good bit of business. I think he’ll do well for Leeds, he’s a good player. It’s just been clear for a while his heart isn’t in it up here.”

Great deal for Rangers as Glen Kamara gets set for exit

If this transfer does anything, it’s prove that player valuations shouldn’t purely be based on what they are currently offering the club.

Rangers might not want him but Glen Kamara has over 50 caps for his country and nearly 60 in European competition – £5.5m is the going rate for players of this calibre.

What is also forgotten sometimes is that he rarely missed a game through injury other than the odd niggle here and there – a quality that is often overlooked.

If Michael Beale was to target a player with a similar pedigree, we wouldn’t be surprised at being quoted such a fee, even for one who is out of favour.

At his best for Rangers, he would pivotal in providing balance in midfield and on the run to the Europa League final.

It was just a shame that he got a nose bleed whenever he got near to the opposition box in the SPFL, apart from McDiarmid Park that is.
