'Do they need him?' - McNamara claims Rangers could cash in on 'bargain' first team ace


Jackie McNamara says that Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara could leave Ibrox this summer as he is one of the few players the club could make money on.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider the former Scotland star claims that the 23-year-old was a bargain signing back in the January transfer window and that his impressive performances might have put him in the shop window again.

Reports this summer have linked the Finnish international with a move to England, Premier League side Brighton named as a possible destination, and McNamara is not ruling out the possibility of Rangers cashing in on his exit before the window slams shut.

Asked if Kamara could be on his way, McNamara told Football Insider: “Aye, it could be a possibility. I think he’s one of a few players I think they could make money on. They paid £50,000 for Kamara which obviously was a bit of a bargain.

“Paying 50 grand for him from Dundee, showing he’s a shrewd buy but whether or not they want to use him as part of their team this year, do they need him?”

Kamara was destined to move to Rangers this summer, having penned a pre-contract deal in January, but a last minute transfer was agreed and he made the switch before the winter window deadline.

Since swapping Dundee for Glasgow, Kamara has played 16 times for Steven Gerrard’s men, scoring his only Gers goal in a 4-0 win over his former side.
