If Rangers are on the verge of signing Glen Kamara early this January, Mark Allen is playing it awfully cool.
The Ibrox Director of Football has brushed off questions that Kamara could be on his way to Ibrox before the end of the month, after the Finnish international signed a pre-contract with the club at the weekend.
As reported by STV, Kamara was recalled from international duty yesterday to hold talks with Dundee about his futures, amidst speculation they are keen to strike a deal with Rangers about an early move to Glasgow.
Mark Allen though was unaware of the developments, telling The Daily Record: “He is a Dundee player right now. We have just followed the principles to try and sign him in the summer. It was news to me that he had been called back, that is a Dundee question, not for me to answer at this stage.”
The likelihood here is surely that the Gers strike a deal with the Tayside club to let Kamara settle into his new club as early as possible.
His first-team action may be limited at Ibrox in the second half of the season but it would better prepare him for life at the club ahead of the new season, which is when we’ve initially targeted him to come in.
