Glen Kamara signs new Rangers contract, set for 'significant' wage rise

Glen Kamara has signed a new contract at Rangers that extends his Ibrox contract until 2025, the club have confirmed on Twitter.

The Finland international, 25, has been at Rangers since 2019 after arriving from Dundee.

Some virtuoso displays in midfield have seen the Arsenal academy graduate reportedly attract admiring glances south of the border, but the Gers have now tied him down to fresh terms.

Writing via his personal Twitter profile, The Athletic’s Jordan Campbell claims Kamara is set for a hefty rise in wages.

“Glen Kamara has signed a new deal at Rangers,” he said. “Had been a matter of time but he has now extended until 2025.

“Significant uplift on the terms as this is his first renewal since joining from Dundee but he’s such an important player and will be one who will move on at some point.”

Deserved

It seems strange for this to be Kamara’s first renewal since joining the Gers nearly three years ago.

He was picked up for a measly £50,000 and has gone on to become a crucial component in Steven Gerrard’s midfield.

Were the club to sell him now, he would surely fetch a fee for that would absolutely dwarf that initial amount.

He was a standout performer for his national team at the recent Euro 2020 tournament while he has shown his class in the Europa League.

An eventual exit to the Premier League seems likely, but this contract gives more confidence that the Gers will get to enjoy more of his peak years at Ibrox.
