Rangers boss Steven Gerrard insists the club’s board should ramp up efforts to extend Glen Kamara’s deal after impressive Old Firm performance

  • Midfielder Glen Kamara ran the show in the 2-0 win at Celtic Park on Saturday
  • The bargain £50,000 buy from Dundee has a contract at Gers running to 2023
  • Steven Gerrard was asked if Rangers planned to rush through the signing talks

Steven Gerrard believes the Rangers board should be speeding up their efforts to extend Glen Kamara’s contract after his impressive Old Firm display.

The bargain £50,000 buy from Dundee has a deal running to 2023 but Gerrard wants to tie him down for longer after seeing the midfielder run the show during the 2-0 win at Celtic Park on Saturday.

Asked if Gers planned to rush through the signing talks to stave off interest in the Finland international, Gerrard – speaking ahead of his team’s opening Europa League clash with Standard Liege – said: ‘I don’t know is the answer to your question. If it was my decision the answer would be yes.

‘I’ve made my feelings known to Ross (Wilson, sporting director) and the board on that situation.

‘Glen has been fantastic for me since day one. He’s grown and he’s evolved. He’s improved and he’s listened.’

Gerrard added: ‘There were different areas of his game that we felt we could shape and help him become a better player.

‘But he is the one who has really gone out and worked on his game both in and out of possession.

‘He’s in a fantastic place and is playing with confidence.

‘He was superb at the weekend but for me he has been really consistent for much longer than that.

‘We want Glen around us for as long as possible and everyone knows my feelings on that situation.’
