Frank McAvennie is doubtful “great” Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara would thrive at Leeds United.

The former Celtic striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, insists the former Arsenal man would struggle in an attack-minded Leeds side.

TEAMtalk claim Leeds recently sent scouts to watch Kamara as other European clubs such as Lille and Borussia Dortmund take an interest.

This site revealed in March that Rangers value Kamara at £10million-plus following his excellent performances in the Europa League. 

Kamara, 25, has established himself as a key member of Steven Gerrard’s squad since he moved to Ibrox from Dundee for £50,000.

McAvennie insists that while Kamara has worked wonders at Rangers, he would struggle to hack it under Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds.

“He was a great bit of business from Rangers,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“Kamara’s worked wonders but I think he’ll struggle to make it in a Premier League team.

“Especially at Leeds where they play great football, I’m not sure. That’s a pretty big ask. 

“Kamara’s done really well this year, I think he’s a really good player. What I’ve seen of him this year he’s done really well.”

“But if he moves to the Premier League, good luck to him.”

Kamara has started 23 of the Gers’ 34 Scottish Premiership games this season and also featured heavily in the side’s run to the Europa League round of 16 which ended after a home loss to Slavia Prague.

He is currently hitting the headlines after accusing a Slavia player of racially abusing him during last month’s 2-0 home loss in the Europa League.
