Derby interest and Ejaria exit must prompt Rangers to step up Kamara chase

Central midfielder Ovie Ejaria has cut his Rangers loan spell short and returned to Liverpool.

After 28 games, Ejaria’s loan spell was terminated prematurely and now Rangers will be searching for a new central midfielder in January.

Dundee man Glen Kamara would be a perfect fit for the Gers and it would be a good move for him personally.

The ex-Arsenal trainee would have the chance to work with Steven Gerrard – one of the best central midfielders of his generation – and it would be a step up from his relegation battle at Dundee.

But Gerrard faces a battle for his services as The Daily Mail reports that Derby County and Rangers are ready to go head-to-head in this pursuit.

Former England team-mates Gerrard and Frank Lampard will scrap it out for Kamara, who has impressed scouts in the Scottish Premiership.

The 23-year-old has been at Dundee since 2017 after leaving The Gunners, racking up 61 appearances in total.

And despite him being a key player, Dundee are willing to sell Kamara this January to ensure they do not lose him for nothing in the summer.

Rangers must eye a cut-price deal for the impressive Finland international, who could be the perfect fit in midfield.

With Ejaria’s loan ended and Lassana Coulibaly’s temporary deal set to end in the summer, Kamara could prove to be a shrewd long-term acquisition in Rangers’ midfield.
