Alan Hutton has suggested Rangers may include a release clause in Glen Kamara’s new contract.

The former Ibrox defender, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed the inclusion of a buyout fee would keep both player and club happy moving forward.

Kamara revealed last month he had held initial talks over a new contract at Ibrox, with two years remaining on his current terms.

The Daily Mail claim several Premier League sides, including Leeds United, are keen on signing the 25-year-old this summer.

As revealed by Football Insider, Rangers value the Finland international at £10million-plus after impressive performances for both club and country.

Kamara has been a mainstay for the Light Blues, with 45 appearances under his belt this season.

Hutton suggested a new contract was a no-brainer for both the midfielder and Rangers.

However, he suggested there could be a purchase clause included to satisfy both parties.

Discussing Rangers’ need to tie Kamara down, Hutton told Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge: “It suits everyone. He looks happy playing his football.

“He’s a main part of Steven Gerrard’s team. He’s learning from arguably one of the best midfielders in the world.

“Nowadays, with the likes of release clauses and things like that, if Rangers or Glen are willing to put that in there it suits everyone.

“Rangers are going to get value for the player, they’re giving the player the option that if this value is met, they’ll let him leave. 

“To get to that stage he’s got to be playing at the top of his game so everybody’s a winner.”
