Kenny orders Finland boss to 'stop it' after 'weird' transfer comments about Rangers ace Kamara
Markku Kanerva should stop “butting [his] nose” in to influence Glen Kamara’s future at Rangers.
That is according to ex-Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the Finland manager’s recent remarks.
Quoted by AFP on 20th June, the 57-year-old said he would like to see Kamara “continue his development” by playing at “bigger clubs.”
As per Sportitalia journalist Gianluigi Lonardgi on 15th June, Premier League new boys Watford have opened talks to sign the dynamic midfielder.
This site revealed on 3rd May that Arsenal also keen on re-signing their former academy product.
Kamara, who has two years remaining on his current Rangers deal, has starred for Kanerva’s Finland at the Euros.

Kenny labelled the international boss’s comments “weird” and claimed he should stay out of Rangers’ business.
“They aren’t going to be best pleased with him,” he told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams.
“I don’t know why international managers go and do that. He’s not your player at the end of the day, he belongs to the club.
“It’s a weird one for me, that. He plays how many internationals a year? It’s 10 tops. He shouldn’t be worrying about that.
“I don’t get why they’re butting their noses in. Stop it. It’s Rangers who pay his wages week in, week out.”
Kanerva featured 51 times in 2020-21 as Rangers swaggered towards the league title.
The 25-year-old has been capped 30 times by his country after making his international bow in 2017.
