Glen Kamara tipped to quit Rangers as well even though he started v Hearts - Sky Sports pundit
Glen Kamara has been tipped to join the summer exodus at Rangers by Sky Sports pundit Kris Boyd.
The Gers announced on Tuesday (23 May) that Alfredo Morelos, Allan McGregor, Filip Helander, Ryan Kent and Scott Arfield will all depart Ibrox at the end of their contracts.
Former Rangers favourite Boyd does not expect the exits to end there and namechecked Kamara as a potential departure, despite the midfielder starting in Wednesday’s (24 May) Scottish Premiership clash against Hearts.
“I’m sure we will see signings coming in at Rangers very soon. There’s already players that we know are leaving and there could be more, I mean will Glen Kamara be here next season?” Boyd told Sky Sports.
“There are players in the team that might not be here next season.
“For me it is a big occasion for a lot of players, most so for Alan McGregor. He’s been a terrific servant for Rangers and it will be emotional for him because it’s tough leaving this place.”
Rangers rebuild is imperative
There were some big names included in the list of players leaving Rangers this summer, not least Morelos and McGregor – two players who were hugely influential in the club’s success in recent years.
But the truth is, the Gers have been well off the pace of fierce Old Firm rivals Celtic this season and there is little room for sentiment as Beale attempts to bridge the significant gap in the Scottish Premiership next term.
Building blocks are already in place for a reshape, with Kieran Dowell joining on a free transfer from Norwich City next season and Jack Butland and Jose Cifuentes among those linked to sign on too.
Whether Rangers can overhaul Celtic next term remains to be seen but there only chance to do so was to bring in some flesh blood.
It may be that more bodies head for the exit door to allow for new faces to arrive.
