Gerrard wishes Kamara to extend his stay with Rangers

Fri 11 December 2020 | 13:21

After their recent Europa League win, the team’s coach hopes their Finnish prodigy would sign a new deal with the club.

Rangers

manager,

Steven Gerrard

, hopes the club will enter new negotiations with

Glen Kamara

to extend his stay with the team. After their

Europa League

win over

Lech Poznan

and witnessing the amazing performance displayed by the Finnish midfielder, Gerrard wishes to see Kamara for a longer while on his squad.

Though his contract won’t end until 2023, Gerrard is still worried that other clubs would lure the 25-year-old to their side and offering him a new deal by Rangers would ease up his concerns.

The Ibrox manager talking about the player said:

“It’s pretty simple. It’s my job to advise when I think people deserve to be rewarded.”

“It’s my job to advise when I predict there is a lot of noise around a certain individual and obviously to try to protect the club, the team and everyone from a situation where we could lose one of our best players.”

“That’s the reason why I said last night that we need to try to move his personal situation forward. The board are aware of it, they are on the same page and I think it will only be a matter of time.”

 “It is also about sending a message that we’re trying to build a team here. Everyone is working ever so hard to move the team forward. I think the last thing we need now is to lose a big part of that jigsaw,”

he added.

“Glen has been absolutely sensational since he came in and it’s not just about what you’ve got left on your contract, it’s about what you deserve.”

“It’s about protecting yourself from the future and what could possibly happen. Glen is happy, he’s enjoying his football, he’s happy here. For me it’s the right thing to do.”

“He’s a magnificent player. He’s moved on ever so well. He’s just a fantastic kid to work with. He does everything right and I’d like to see him rewarded for that work that he’s put in.”

Gerrard also talked about

James Tavernier

and

Connor Goldson

, whose contracts end in 18 months.

“The club are aware what everyone’s contract situation is and aware of who is performing well and who is going above and beyond at the moment.”

“All the players are aware that we want to speak moving forward and it is about timing. At the right time, if things keep going as they are, I am sure the right people will be rewarded.”

Later Gerrard dismissed the rumors of their interest in

Chelsea

player,

Billy Gilmour

, but confirmed that they are interested in

Juan Alegria

.

“From what I see from afar, I think Billy Gilmour is pretty settled at Chelsea,” said the former England captain ahead of Sunday’s trip to Dundee United.”

“He has obviously had an injury. Every time I listen to Frank Lampard he is really happy with the player.”

“He’s a fabulous little player but there has been no contact between the clubs or the managers. I think that’s just people putting two and two together and looking for stories.”

“The Alegria one is slightly different. We’re well aware of the player and his talent. We are always looking to recruit right through the club.”

“This is something the academy has had a closer eye on than myself but we are very much aware of the boy. There is something in that one but there is nothing to report on it as of yet.”
