Glasgow Rangers originally tabled a cheeky £50K bid for Glen Kamara but eventually got their top midfield target for only £100K, according to the Sun.
The current Finland internationalist should be an exceptionally good asset to the Gers squad over the next four-and-a-half year-deal.
It was a sensible outcome for both clubs, as the player told manager Jim McIntyre that his heart was set on joining Rangers before the original June 2019 date.
McIntyre informed the board that Kamara’s head was completely turned by the thought of playing for the title run in with the Glasgow giants.
After signing his pre-contract agreement with Rangers, it seems that Kamara’s attitude changed about staying and fighting for Dundee, in a relegation battle.
He has stiff opposition for a place in the side with Ross McCrorie, Ryan Jack, Scott Arfield, Steven Davis, Andy Halliday and Lassana Coulibaly all fighting for a start.
Graham Dorrans and Jamie Murphy will soon be fit to play in the Rangers first team again, making his starting place even harder to find.
Daniel Candeias, Ryan Kent, Eros Grezda and Glenn Middleton can also play as wide midfield players.
The 23-year-old ex-Arsenal man Kamara, did not feature in any of the Dens Park side’s last three games since he signed to join Rangers.
This means that Kamara is not cup-tied and should turn out to be a very worthwhile addition to Gerrard’s squad.
With an over-stocked squad, it won’t hurt to have Kamara working under the coaching influence of Gerrard, an ex-midfield star with Liverpool and England.
This gives Kamara the chance to integrate and settle properly in Glasgow. He will also get used to his new environment earlier than first thought.
