Barry Ferguson has told the Daily Record that he was laughing while watching Saturday’s Old Firm game over the thought that Rangers spent just £50,000 to bring Glen Kamara to Ibrox.
Steven Gerrard’s side produced a superb performance at Parkhead. Two goals from Connor Goldson saw the Gers take the early advantage in the title race.
Goldson was the match-winner. But you could understand why many Rangers fans may look at Kamara as their best performer in an outstanding team display.
The Finland international absolutely dominated the battle in the middle of the park. He was superb and Celtic could not get near him at times.
And his display left Ferguson reflecting on what a masterstroke it was to get him to sign from Dundee almost two years ago.
“Glen Kamara was the standout. How on earth was that guy only £50,000? What would you get for that now? That is the deal of the Century,” he told the Daily Record.
“I was actually laughing while I was watching the game thinking what a piece of business that was. And he is only going to get better too.
“Stick another two zeros on the end of that £50,000 and you’ll not be close to what he’s worth now.”
Kamara made a brilliant start to life at Ibrox. And after a slight dip in form, he looks to be getting back to his very best.
Of course, the 24-year-old still needs to prove that he can sustain this run of form over the course of the campaign. But it should now come as little surprise if he does just that.
Rangers previously had a squad who could, on their day, hold Celtic in Old Firm games. Now however, Gerrard has put together a side that has the ability to simply outplay their rivals – with Kamara establishing himself as one of their most important players.
