Alan Hutton admits that he can see Rangers cashing in on Glen Kamara this January after Steven Gerrard admitting that clubs were circling for the midfielder’s capture.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former Gers and Scotland defender says that the 24-year-old is by no means irreplaceable at Ibrox, highlighting the vast number of midfield options at the manager’s disposal.
Gerrard has already admitted he knows that clubs are watching the Finnish international with a view to a transfer deal, Football Insider having exclusively revealed that Championship side Leeds are among those in pursuit.
Hutton says that while Alfredo Morelos has been linked with a move away, the Colombian is absolutely invaluable to the side, suggesting that Kamara’s departure could be covered by others already in Glasgow.
Hutton told Football Insider: “If there’s anybody that I think could possibly go, he would be the one.
“Don’t get me wrong, he’s been amazing. They bought him for 50 grand, he’s been a revelation in that midfield, he’s been excellent but I do think Rangers could handle it if he was to go.
“They would be able to cash in for him. If some of the top teams I’ve heard are looking at him want him, they would have to put down quite a bit of money so it would be a great investment for Rangers.”
Kamara has established himself as a regular in the starting XI under Gerrard, with 17 starts in his 20 appearances across all competitions this season.
He has a total of 36 matches under his belt for the Light Blues, having seen his initial pre-contract agreement turned into a transfer from Dundee back in January.
