Mills: Rangers may be powerless to stop Kamara quitting Ibrox after source reveal
Danny Mills has claimed Glen Kamara’s new Rangers contract will include a release clause.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Leeds United and England defender insisted a formal clause would be a good idea for both Kamara and Rangers.
The Gers announced earlier this week (September 22) that the midfielder had put pen to paper on a deal that will expire in 2025.
It seemed to end speculation over his future with his previous contract having two years left.
An Ibrox source told Football Insider on September 23 there is an agreement that means Kamara could still leave for a certain price.
“I would be surprised if it that’s not formalised,” Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.

“If I was working for a player in this day and age I’d have it in the contract as mandatory.
“It’s a good idea and it protects the player and the club.
“If he does well and has the opportunity to move on the club are obviously sufficiently renumerated for that.
“I would be surprised if there is not some sort of clause in there that gives the player the opportunity to move on for the right price.
“I think we’ve all learnt from the lack of Harry Kane deal that materialised over the summer. That was a good lesson on how not to do it.”
Kamara moved to Rangers for a bargain £50,000 fee from Dundee in January 2019 and has played 116 times across all competitions.
Football Insider revealed in March the Gers value him at £10million after his performances in the Europa League.
