Kamara says he had offers to leave Rangers but he wasn't interested
Glen Kamara has admitted he had offers to leave Rangers during the summer transfer window.
However, the Finland international seems to have committed his future to the club.
Speaking to Finnish media (as reported by The Scottish Sun), Kamara said his focus has always been on the Glasgow giants. He also steered clear of interest from other clubs by saying he ‘was not very interested’.
Kamara’s stock rose after a good Euro 2020 with his home country. Newcastle United, Arsenal and Spartak Moscow were among the interested parties in the midfielder.
He was a key part of Steven Gerrard’s side last season, making 28 appearances as the club lifted the league title.
When talking about the offers, Kamara said: “I know there has been interest from different leagues but my focus has always been on Rangers.
“I myself was not very interested in it. Mostly I thought that if something happens, then it will happen. But nothing happened in the end.”
Rangers need to retain Kamara
With just two years left on his current contract, there is a real danger of Kamara leaving the club in the near future.
However, Rangers need to retain Kamara beyond the next two seasons amid offers for the ace.
If offers arrived in the summer, you can expect them to come again in the January transfer window.
But, with Celtic looking very competitive in the Scottish Premiership this season, selling the midfielder is not an option. He will prove a vital cog for Gerrard in the title race this season.
No Gers player, to start a game, had a higher pass accuracy average than the Finn (90.7%) last campaign. Meanwhile, he was the fourth-most fouled player in the team.
His use of the ball makes him one of the club’s biggest threats, to sell him would be a bad decision.
