RANGERS boss Steven Gerrard has praised Finnish international Glen Kamara  – and strongly denied the midfielder had been the subject of bids ahead of January’s transfer window.

The former Arsenal Academy product cost a bargain £50,000 in January as he was coming out of contract at Dundee.

Kamara, 24, agreed a four-and-a-half year deal and has a host of admirers with his performances for club and country this season.

Gerrard, speaking to Sky Sports News, said: “We haven’t heard of any interest down south. I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s interest in Glen Kamara across the board.

“Glen’s doing fine and has a real good strong contract here when he came from Dundee. We pounced for him nice and early to make sure he got here six months in advance.

“The message for Glen and the other players out there is we always reward our players for consistent performances over a long period of time, and Glen will be treated no different.

“So, all the players need to continue to win football matches and try to do everything they can to bring success back to the club and then they won’t have to worry about contracts.”

Kamara has contributed to an impressive for Gerrard’s men who are level on points with champions Celtic and just behind on goal difference.

They will take on the Parkhead outfit in the Betfred League Cup Final on Sunday, December 8 and are on course to make progress in the Europa League.

The Liverpool legend, preparing his players for the trip to Hamilton Accies on Sunday, added: “I’ve been absolutely delighted with Glen Kamara since he came in the door and sometimes I still have to pinch myself to realise that we got that player how we did and what we got him for.”
