Glen Kamara won’t push to leave Rangers in January despite links to Arsenal, according to his former manager Neil McCann.

Recent reports suggest Arsenal are watching Glen Kamara very closely at the moment. They reportedly sent scouts to each of the midfielder’s last six games with Rangers.

The rumours are that Arsenal might hold an interest in a January move for their former player. The Gunners have had some problems in defensive midfield this season, and Kamara is having a lot of success in the position in Scotland.

Neil McCann doesn’t think the player will push for a move though. McCann was Kamara’s former boss when he was with Dundee United, and spoke to the media this week.

“All I know is that Glen won’t be making waves,” McCann said. “He loves it at Rangers and when I talk to him he’s desperate to be successful there.

“That’s what is driving Glen now – a desire to lift silverware with Rangers. He won’t be pushing to leave in January. I can say that 100 per cent. I believe he feels an affinity to the club already.”

McCann didn’t rule out the possibility of a transfer completely though.

“Who knows what will happen, maybe Rangers will receive an offer they can’t reject. If the club get a big offer for him…then they might look at things differently.”

Kamara is on a run of eight consecutive league wins with Rangers. The only game his club didn’t win in that time period was the only one he didn’t play in. It was also the only game in nine when they conceded more than one goal.

Rangers are two points off the top of the table, but they have a game in hand on Celtic above them.
