Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara has played down talk that he is close to signing a new contract with the Light Blues. The Finnish international has been in superb form at the start of the season, with manager Steven Gerrard stating he is keen to see the player rewarded with a new deal.
The Gers boss has also called on the club’s hierarchy to make efforts to tie down the 25-year-old on fresh terms, amid reports that the likes of Arsenal, Brighton, Leeds, West Ham and Sheffield United were looking to sign him.
However, Kamara has confirmed that he won’t be putting pen to paper any time soon, although the Finn says he’s focused on playing for Rangers and he has not thought about leaving the club:
“I have no idea and I wouldn’t say anything has happened yet but I am just focused on my football and I’m happy to play for Rangers. I feel good, I feel confident and my play is decent. I’ve had a couple of big performances in those European games and just want to keep it going. There’s a lot of competition and fight for places. We’ve always had that freedom but we all have to fight for our place every week.”
It does seem Gerrard’s calls for the player to get a new contract have not been heeded by the Rangers board so far, which may worry some supporters, but it is hoped that it won’t be long before discussions over a new deal begin.
