Agbonlahor: Manager told to take back 'disrespectful' Rangers comments after Kamara reveal
Finland manager Markku Kanerva should retract his “disrespectful” comments about Rangers, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England forward delivered his verdict after Kanerva claimed he wanted to see Glen Kamara playing at “even bigger clubs”.
Kamara played the full 90 minutes in all three of Finland’s European Championship games as they were knocked out at the group stages.
It comes off the back of the 25-year-old’s fantastic campaign for Rangers as he played 51 times across all competitions as they secured the Scottish Premiership title and reached the Europa League Round of 16 stage.
Football Insider learned on 3 May Arsenal have registered their interest in re-signing Kamara who is a graduate of the club’s academy.
As quoted by AFP, Kanerva said he wants Kamara to “continue his development” at “even bigger clubs”.

“It’s not the right thing to say,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.
“Rangers are doing a great job and are a great side.
“I don’t think he should be disrespecting them like that and say stuff like that. I think he should take that back.
“Just let Kamara play his football at Rangers. They’re the club that have given him the platform to put in these good performances so he should stay there and keep playing. They’re a massive club.”
Kamara moved to Ibrox for just £50,000 from Dundee in January 2019.
He has now played 106 times for the Gers and has 34 Finland caps under his belt.
