Celtic must scrap reported hunt to sign £1m-rated midfielder and let Rangers sign him
Celtic have been linked recently with Dundee midfielder Glen Kamara, who has a very good season for the Dens Park club.
The Scottish Sun reports that the Hoops are set to battle it out with Old Firm rivals Rangers and Premier League side Swansea for the player, who is rated at £1million.
However, one aspect that has to be considered, is the player good enough for the Hoops? And the answer is no.
The 22-year-old has gathered rave reviews for ninth placed Dundee in the Scottish Premiership since joining them from Arsenal in the summer, but a move to the Hoops at this moment in time doesn’t make sense for the club.
Kamara is a defensive midfielder, a position which the Hoops have plenty of players who can play that role.

Club captain Scott Brown, Olivier Ntcham and Nir Bitton all play in that role, not forgetting Eboue Kouassi, who the Hoops spent £3million last year and who has rarely featured.
There is also the danger of buying from Scottish clubs to take into account, as the last player the Bhoys bought from Dundee – Jack Hendry – hasn’t exactly set the world on fire.
If the Hoops want to sign another defensive midfielder they can do better than a player who is fighting a relegation battle in the Scottish Premiership.
Kamara is not good enough for Celtic and the club should let Rangers take him in the summer.
