Campbell verdict on release clause in Kamara's new Rangers deal after Athletic update

A potential release clause in Glen Kamara’s proposed new Rangers contract would be beneficial for both parties.

So says former Arsenal and Everton striker Kevin Campbell, who was speaking exclusively to Football Insider.

The Athletic reported earlier this month (August 5th) that Kamara’s prospective new deal at Rangers would include a compromise on a potential future departure from Ibrox.

The report outlines that Rangers will look to receive a big transfer fee for the Finnish midfielder in the coming seasons as they move to a “sustainable model”.

This alludes to the potential inclusion of a release clause in Kamara’s new terms.

The Arsenal academy product linked with a big-money return to England.

Former Gers defender Alan Hutton touted a potential release clause for Kamara back in April.

Campbell echoed the former Gers defender and insisted the agreement would be “smart” business.

He told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs: “I think clubs are right to act smart these days and put these clauses in.

“It’s good for the club and it’s good for the player because everyone knows where they stand if bids do come in. It’s very black and white.

“It could well be a part of the deal.”

Sky Sports (August 6th) quoted boss Steven Gerrard confirming that Rangers had tabled a “really strong contract offer” that Kamara’s advisers are “happy with”.

The midfielder, who moved to Ibrox from Dundee in 2019, has two years left to run on his current deal.

In other news, a bid has been accepted for Rangers and Celtic target Thomas Henry.
