Former Celtic man Teemu Pukki’s comments betting on Glen Kamara playing in the PL was delivered with as forked a tongue as he could muster following his insistence his Fin team mate would do well there.
Rangers in-form midfielder was courted during the window by Marseille, Brighton, Anderlecht and one or two others, with a £10M fee being optimistically mentioned by the press. In reality his value is considerably higher.
However, Pukki, a Celtic failure and indeed who struggles at Norwich City these days in the Championship having dipped in form early last season in the top flight, seems to urgently want the midfielder to leave Rangers ASAP.
What a surprise.
I’m sure we’ll see him saying similar about Killie’s recent loan Niko Hämäläinen who has a couple of recent caps for the NT as well. No?
What is it about Celtic players and staff and ex-players who go into the press and either attack Rangers or encourage Rangers players to leave?
Sure, if a massive bid for Kamara came in in January, maybe we’d take a look, but Steven Gerrard has confirmed the Fin is 100% unsellable – part of his untouchables and he won’t leave for Anderlecht or anyone else.
No matter what Pukki wants to see.
