No £5M for Rangers as Glen Kamara only looks at loan

Glen Kamara’s poor form of the past 18 months has potentially cost him a permanent move out of Ibrox, with suitor clubs no longer willing to risk a £5M investment in a player who has clearly ‘downed tools’ and now only willing to offer him a loan.

Turkish side Besiktas have emerged as a prime destination for the Finnish star to go, but it’s not the permanent deal he probably wanted, and the former employer of Rangers’ Ridvan Yilmaz are ready to take a chance on the midfielder but only as a borrow.

This, sadly for Kamara, is reaping what he has sown. He downed tools at Dundee and became very unpopular with fans there when the move to Rangers was secured in 2019, and history is repeating itself as the engine room man once again looks unfocused.

But this time he’s paying for his own complacency by not getting the ‘escape route’ that he exactly wants, which is a shiny permanent transfer to a big club in a top-five league, which he probably expected would be the case.

Instead, the best he’s getting is a loan to Turkey, with, we pray, option to buy and the notion his performances will be a lot better than the apathetic fare he’s demonstrated at Ibrox.

The idea here is he has to earn his meal ticket – Michael Beale has already confirmed he’s done with Kamara and the lad has to move on – he isn’t in this manager’s plans, not because he’s not good enough but because his attitude lets him down.

So now we’re looking at shipping him out on loan to the graveyard for Rangers players that is Turkey, and hopefully he does well enough to either get a big move next summer or the permanent deal to the Super Lig.

  1. A loan deal is not ideal but it would mean that Besiktas would pay part of his wages and Kamara would play out of his skin to get a permanent move away. 💙💙
