Reported Glasgow Rangers target Florian Kamberi might be incredibly fond of Ibrox but that’s not to say it’ll be easy for the Light Blues to get their hands on him again in wake of interest from other potential suitors.
The Hibernian striker spent the second half of last season on loan with Steven Gerrard’s side and angered his parent club’s fans with his comments upon joining Rangers, claiming Ibrox was his “dream” move and calling Bears “the best fans in the world”.
Kamberi, 25, made nine appearances for Rangers, scoring once and claiming two assists, but with the Scottish Premiership season being suspended in March and ultimately curtailed, he eventually returned to Hibs.
According to a report in the Daily Record from mid-June, Gerrard remains interested in bringing the £150,000-rated forward to Rangers, although there appears to be competition for his services from south of the border and from Europe.
The Scottish Sun has now claimed that Hibs are in talks with Swiss league leaders St Gallen, who are negotiating to buy him, while English sides Norwich, Hull, Middlesbrough and Huddersfield, plus number of other European clubs, are also apparently interested.
While Kamberi’s kind comments about Rangers and the fans went down a treat with the Bears, you can understand why Hibs fans weren’t at all impressed by them, and it’ll be difficult for the Swiss-born attacker to win them back.
However, the Rangers camp needs to step up a gear if they truly want him back at Ibrox because, by the sounds of it, the 6ft 2in Swiss-born ace is a wanted man.
