Rangers’ midfielders can pose a serious threat in the Champions League if the club keeps hold of their star players.
That’s according to former Celtic striker Frank McAvennie, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about Rangers’ Champions League chances.
Football Insider has revealed Arsenal are eyeing a move for Glen Kamara after his impressive performances this season.
Kamara, 25, has been a key player for Steven Gerrard this season and performed especially well during Rangers’ Europa League campaign.
Rangers’ Scottish Premiership title win means they have the chance to play in the Champions League for the first time in a decade.
McAvennie claims Gerrard and Gary McAllister must be purring at the Gers midfield and tipped certain players to shine in the Champions League, if they stay at Ibrox.
“Ryan Kent and Steven Davis have been pulling the strings for weeks,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.
“They look like world-beaters. They have so much confidence and that’s a massive thing in football.
“Rangers’ confidence is only getting bigger and bigger, they all want the ball. It must really please Steven Gerrard.
“Him and McAllister must have been purring at that midfield at the weekend [v Celtic]. If they can keep those midfield players together, Glen Kamara, Joe Aribo, Kent. Wow, that’s a threat.
“That’s a midfield that can do well in Europe.”
Davis, 36, signed a one-year contract extension earlier this season.
Rangers will enter the Champions League’s third qualifying round this summer as they bid to reach the group stage.
