‘Glen Kamara not good enough for Rangers but Celtic will be jittery’, says former Dundee star

Glen Kamara

Glen Kamara is “not good enough” for Rangers, according to former Dundee man Lee Wilkie.

Midfielder Kamara, 23, has been in and out of the Dens Park side since Jim McIntyre took over from Neil McCann in October.

The Finnish international penned a four-year pre-contract deal with the Ibrox club over the weekend.

That kicks in when his current Dens deal ends in the summer but McIntyre is hoping to bring the summer move to Rangers forward to this month to fund his January transfers.

Retired defender Lee Wilkie, who played 111 games for Dundee between 1998 and 2006, doesn’t believe former Arsenal man Kamara will make the grade at Rangers.

He wrote in his weekly Tele column: “I have to admit not to having seen too much of him but I am surprised.

“He’s been great for the Dark Blues but I don’t think he’s good enough for Gers.”

For Kamara to move this month a fee would need to be thrashed out between the clubs, which could drag on, but it’s the saving on wages – with Kamara one of the club’s higher earners – that would allow the Dundee gaffer to bring in new faces.

Kamara has been in and out of the Dens Park side since McIntyre took over from Neil McCann in October.

However, Wilkie does believe that Rangers have so far had a good month of transfer dealings, with Steven Davies and Jermain Defore arriving at Ibrox.

He wrote: “Celtic fans might just be a bit jittery now and that might prompt the Hoops to bring in some new names of their own in the coming weeks.

“Rangers can, obviously, see they have a real chance of winning the title – I’m not sure they would have splashed out otherwise.

“Two vastly-experienced players is a huge boost.”
