Russian giants Spartak Moscow have denied media reports linking them with a £10M swoop for Glen Kamara.
This was a story we didn’t bring to you at all because it was hogwash in the first place, but the Rangers name has been used again for traffic amidst allegations from the red tops that the UEL hopefuls, whose coefficient is considerably below Rangers’, want our star midfielder for relative buttons.
But it’s tripe.
No kidding – with all due respect, black players aren’t welcome in that part of the world as it is, and following the racism scandal, Kamara would sooner drag himself over hot coals than play in any Eastern Bloc nation.
But the idea one of Rangers’ prize assets would leave for just £10M while the destination being Russia was one of the media’s more bizarre stories.
That the official, Spartak’s Dmitry Zelenov, actually had to confirm the story as fiction is quite embarrassing in truth, and that Kamara would ever consider a move to that league even more so.
In truth, we think the media nabbed this story from 90mins, a dubious source who claimed last year that Dinamo Moscow and Dynamo Kiev (PS they’re from different countries chaps) were in for Kamara, which literally didn’t add up on any level.
Moreover, the author of that piece has been removed from that site…
Anyway, we’ll see what happens with Kamara, but either way, he ain’t going to the Eastern Bloc!
