'If Gerrard wants him, the board will listen' - Exclusive: Pundit on big Rangers update via Sky

Rangers will listen to manager Steven Gerrard and hand Glen Kamara a new and improved contract.

That is according to former Celtic and St Mirren striker Frank McAvennie, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs about the 25-year-old future at Ibrox.

As quoted by Sky Sports, Gerrard urged club chiefs to “move quickly” to tie the midfielder down to a new contract following a number of “outstanding” performances this season.

Kamara, who arrived to the Glasgow giants from Dundee FC for just £50,000 in January 2019, has three years remaining on his current contract.

He has made 25 appearances for the Gers this season including a man of the match display in October’s 2-0 win at Celtic Park.

When asked by Football Insider for his verdict on Kamara’s future, McAvennie said:

“If Steven Gerrard wants him to get him tied down to a new deal then why would you not? I think the board will listen to him.

“Kamara cost just £50,000 as well. The recruitment at Rangers has been great in recent years and he is an example of that.”

Speaking on Kamara’s future, Gerrard said: “I thought Glen Kamara again showed why everybody is talking about him and there’s a lot of fuss about him.

“I thought he was outstanding from start to finish and my advice to the club is to move that situation along as quickly as they can.”
