'Magnificent, you have to applaud Rangers' - Exclusive: McAvennie wowed by Ibrox transfer reveal
The recruitment at Rangers has been “different class” over the past few seasons, according to Frank McAvennie.
The former Celtic and St Mirren striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, applauded the Gers’ recruitment team and tipped Steven Gerrard’s side to mount “a serious title challenge” this season.
Football Insider revealed that Ibrox chiefs are convinced that the Glen Kamara, 24, will be worth in excess in £10million next year.
The midfielder’s performances for the Glasgow giants have attracted the attention of Premier League big guns Leeds United, Aston Villa and Arsenal.
Kamara arrived to Ibrox from Dundee FC in a £50,000 deal in January 2019 with Gerrard describing the capture of the Finland international as an “absolute steal”.
When asked by Football Insider for his thoughts on the development of Kamara, McAvennie said:

“There is a lot of boys in that Rangers team who have been magnificent and cost next to nothing.
“Steven Davis was a free, Scott Arfield was a free, Kamara cost just £50,000. Their recruitment at Rangers has been different class for a few years now.
“You have to applaud what the club are doing. They have only spent big money on a couple of players.
“They are riding the crest of a wave at the moment. Steven Gerrard will know that they have been in this position before though. Celtic have a serious title challenge this year.”
