Manager makes honest admission about Rangers and Celtic reported hunt to sign 'superb' enforcer

Dundee manager Neil McCann has admitted that he is not surprised that reports of Rangers and Celtic being interested in midfielder Glen Kamara have surfaced.

The Sun has reported that the two Old Firm rivals and Swansea are both in the hunt to sign Kamara, 22, ahead of the summer transfer window after an impressive debut season at Dens Park.

The Finland international was released by Arsenal last year and was soon snapped up by Dundee, where he has made 41 appearances in all competitions this season.

McCann has revealed that there have been no offers made for Kamara as of yet, however he has been very honest about any potential interest in the midfield enforcer.

“It’s all speculation,” the Dundee manager said, as quoted by STV.

“But what I would say is it’s understandable why there has been speculation, he has been superb this year.”

He added: “(He is) a guy who is under contract and we have had no offers.”

Football Insider verdict

Kamara has not had a lot of time in Scottish football but he clearly must be doing something right to get Rangers and Celtic looking at him ahead of the summer transfer window opening up. The Finnish midfielder could probably play for a better team than Dundee and McCann will do well to keep hold of him for next season with Swansea also interested. Both Rangers and Celtic are already well-stocked in midfield so it’s not likely that they would make a move. However stranger things have happened and Mark Allen may fancy snapping up the Finland international while Brendan Rodgers could be thinking about a long-term option in his midfield.
