We’re delighted to welcome Tam McManus as our exclusive Rangers columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Ibrox…
Glen Kamara’s transfer value has taken a nosedive at Rangers this season amid speculation he’s fallen out with manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst, according to Tam McManus.
The Athletic reported on Sunday morning (13 November) that Kamara, 27, was involved in a bust-up with the Rangers boss after the 1-1 draw at St Mirren on Saturday (12 November).
Kamara was substituted off at halftime and van Bronckhorst gave a very blunt response to the media when asked about that decision after the game.
Kamara’s lawyer Aamer Anwar has since claimed [Daily Record] that the supposed fall-out between the Finland international and van Bronckhorst was “based on pure speculation or falsehood”.
But based on how he’s been playing this season, McManus wouldn’t be shocked if there’s friction between the underperforming midfielder and the under-fire Dutch boss.
“He’s another one Rangers were looking for big money for. They were looking for £10million for him,” McManus told Ibrox News.
“He did really, really well under Gerrard after signing him from Dundee for £50,000.
“He’d have brought in a big profit for Rangers but the way he’s played this season, his value has plummeted.
“There definitely looks to be something wrong with him. Whether he’s fallen out with the manager or not, I don’t know.
“But his performance levels have dipped dramatically – along with a lot of other Rangers players.
“It wouldn’t surprise me if he has fallen out with the manager because he looks as if he’s playing that way, he looks as if he’s sulking in his performances.
“There might be something in that but he’s just another Rangers player who’s been disappointing this season.”
Kamara has played 16 times in all competitions this season for the Light Blues but only nine of those appearances have seen him named in van Bronckhorst’s starting line-up.
