Opinion: It’s baffling English clubs don’t want all-round Glasgow Rangers star

According to the Sun, Glasgow Rangers’ versatile midfielder Glen Kamara has caught the attention of a number of English clubs over the last six months.

His quality performances have attracted the attention of Arsenal, Aston Villa, Brighton, Burnley, Crystal Palace, Leeds and Sheffield United, the report reads.

Since the 24-year-old arrived at Ibrox from Dundee in January 2019, Kamara quickly became a good option for Steven Gerrard’s Rangers midfield of Ryan Jack, Steven Davis, Joe Aribo or the Finland international – any three from four.

When fit, Gerrard picked Jack, Davis and either Aribo or Kamara as his favoured midfield starters, depending on the opposition.

My question is this: 

If a former world class midfielder like Gerrard always prefers to play Jack ahead of Kamara, why are no teams interested in signing him?

In my opinion, Kamara has done very well to force his way into a fairly regular starting role, but for me, Jack is a far better player for Rangers.

Jack is a more reliable performer, and is starting to pitch in by adding goals to his repertoire – Kamara doesn’t.

The Rangers boss has often said that ex-Aberdeen captain Jack can be relied upon to be his best all-round midfield star of the side.

I am pleased the Finnish international’s progress for club and country has not gone unnoticed, but Gerrard will want to keep hold of Kamara for now.

Gerrard has been brilliant since taking over Rangers, and with a number of astute signings, has closed the gap on the more financially sound Celtic.

Rangers landed a huge blow to Neil Lennon’s Celtic, by outplaying them and will top the league if they win their home game in hand against Ross County.

So far this season, Kamara has played six games in the Europa League, four in the BetFred League Cup and 12 in the SPFL.

Jack has played 13 games in the Europa League, three in the BetFred League Cup and only 11 in the SPFL, due to an injury. 

Which player is the best between Jack and Kamara?
