McAvennie: Rangers don't need to worry about Kamara leaving after source update

Frank McAvennie has told Arsenal to put their money where their mouth is after an update on their interest in Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara.

The Celtic icon, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, reacted to the latest on Kamara.

Football Insider revealed on 7 September that Arsenal made a move for Kamara during the recently-shut window.

He was shortlisted as a potential target and Ibrox sources have updated to Football Insider to reveal he is set to remain on their radar.

The midfielder’s Gers deal expires in the summer of 2023 and Steven Gerrard claimed on 6 August “there’s a real strong, good offer on the table for Glen”.

As quoted by The Scotsman (7 September) Kamara claimed he is “aware” of interest in his services from other clubs.

McAvennie insists there is nothing to discuss until Arsenal lodge an official bid.

“I’ve been saying this the whole time,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“They can’t sell anyone until a bid comes in, it’s simple. The boy is vital to Rangers and is always linked with a move away.

“Sometimes it’s Arsenal, sometimes it’s someone else. But we can’t talk about it until the bid goes in.

“If it is Arsenal, they need to put their money where their mouth is, stump up, otherwise what’s the point?

“The lad can only work with what he’s told and if there was no bid then what is he supposed to do?

“Rangers don’t need to worry until a bid comes in.”

Kamara started for Rangers on Saturday as they took on St Johnstone.

The midfielder spent five years with the Gunners as a youngster before leaving the club in 2017.
