Rangers media partner takes 'tiny club' swipe at Euro club after Glen Kamara bid
A lot of Rangers players are attracting interest this summer with Glen Kamara the latest to have been the subject of a transfer offer.
As reported by 90min on Monday [18 July], Galatasaray have lodged a bid of £8million to try and sign the 26-year-old Finnish international but the Light Blues are likely to reject the approach.
The club’s official media partner Heart and Hand have not taken the news of Gala’s advances well and took a well-directed swipe at the Turkish giants on Twitter.
“Such a tiny club. Can’t see Glen being interested,” they said before Rangers Review journalist Derek Clark reported via his personal Twitter account that the Turkish side had actually not made an offer for Kamara.
Rangers have already sold Joe Aribo this summer to Southampton for an initial fee of £6million that could rise to £10million following add-ons which makes the money for Kamara much less required, especially as he has three years left on his contract.
Kamara would never move to a club like Galatasaray in a league far inferior to the Scottish Premiership unless he was due to be paid the mega bucks for doing so.
£8million is also nowhere near enough to prize him away from Ibrox when he has so long left to run on his current deal and he ultimately loves the club that loves him back.
Heart and Hand aren’t exactly incorrect in what they are saying because the Turks are not what they used to be on the European landscape and their side often reflects that.
The tribal atmosphere has also died down since the glory days of the 2000s and they can’t really hold a torch to Ibrox anymore with our ever-passionate home support at every single game.
Kamara would be a fool to throw that away for a move to Turkey when he is so settled here and you can’t see him accepting anything they put in front of him even if we agree on a much larger transfer fee.
