Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara has become a star for club and country – and Arsenal may now regret letting him go.
Kamara has gone from strength to strength since joining Rangers from Dundee in January 2018, becoming one of Steven Gerrard’s most trusted players.
He has even been a key cog for Finland, and will play at the European Championships following a truly incredible qualification campaign.
The 25-year-old has earned huge praise during his time at Rangers, and has bounced back brilliantly from being released by Arsenal.
Kamara had spent his formative years with the Gunners, but was released in the summer of 2017, and had to head to Dundee to get his career back on track.
Kamara’s progress hasn’t gone unnoticed by Arsenal, as they have allegedly been tracking him regularly according to the Daily Mail.
Now, ex-Rangers winger and Kamara’s former Dundee boss Neil McCann has suggested to Rangers TV that Arsenal’s decision to release the midfielder is ‘ironic’ because he could now walk into Mikel Arteta’s side.
McCann claims he always believed in Kamara after his Arsenal exit, and wants to see him stay at Rangers rather than move on any time soon, even if the Gunners want him.
“It’s ironic he left Arsenal because he was deemed not good enough. I believe he could play for Arsenal now standing on his head – he’s that good,” said McCann. “That boy has the ability to play at a very high level.”
“He’s shown it for Finland and Rangers but I hope he doesn’t go anywhere because I want to see him be a success and he is standing on the edge of winning a title. It only took me five minutes with Glen [to recognise his quality]. There wasn’t much to see in an Arsenal jersey but he’s got the pedigree and I was looking for a footballer who could be brave, take it off the centre-back and build from the back under pressure. After five minutes I knew he was a player and we’d found one,” he added.
