Kamara has been an integral part of Gerrard’s Rangers side who have swaggered to the Scottish Premiership title this season.

He has featured 28 times in the league and 49 times across all competitions, those appearances yielding two goals and two assists.

Kamara is an Arsenal academy graduate and penned his first professional terms with the club in 2014.

He made just one senior appearance for the Gunners, in a League Cup tie against Sheffield Wednesday in October 2015.

Kamara spent time on loan with Southend and Colchester before signing for Dundee in July 2017.

After one-and-a-half seasons with the Dark Blues, the 27-time Finland international signed for Rangers at the mid-point of the 2018-19 campaign.

He is widely regarded as one of Rangers’ best-value acquisitions in recent years.
