Rangers’ success at the moment could prove to be something of a double-edged sword if they’re not careful.

On the one hand, you have a team who looks genuinely capable of challenging for a league title this season, and that can only be a good thing.

But on the other, that kind of talent is always going to attract attention, and it’s not unreasonable to foresee the Bears being the focus of a lot of interest in the current transfer window.

One player who is already being mooted as a target for a whole host of sides is midfielder Glen Kamara.

According to a report from the Scottish Sun, the Finnish international is a target for Sheffield United, Arsenal, Brighton Crystal Palace, Burnley, Aston Villa and Championship big guns Leeds United.

And pundit Danny Mills believes he could be tempted by a move to England.

Speaking to Football Insider, he said: “Without a doubt. Any move to the Premier League is massive. It’s not just about money, which will be an attractive sum, but it’s also about kudos.

“That’s huge, a massive part of it.

“And it’s the most competitive league in the world, it gives you the opportunity to showcase everything you’re about.

“So if you get the opportunity to move to the Premier League, without a doubt, you take it.”

This has to be a worry for Rangers fans.

You would hope that given his temperament, as alluded to by Neil McCann in an interview with the Scottish Sun, as well as the fact that his contract runs until 2023, that Kamara would not have his head turned by the bright lights of the English game, but whether we like it or not, it can be a hard glare to ignore.

The 24-year-old doesn’t seem like the type to just jump ship at the first opportunity, and there’s no doubting how popular he has become during his time at Ibrox already, but until the transfer window closes, there will always be this sneaking concern about an unwelcome bolt from the blue.
