RANGERS boss Steven Gerrard has confirmed Glen Kamara has received a “really strong offer” to stay at Ibrox.

The Finnish international, a bargain £50,000 buy from Dundee on January 31 2019, has been a mainstay in the line-up and his boss is eager for the 25-year-old midfielder to extend his stay in Glasgow with his contract due to end in May 2023.

Gerrard insisted Kamara’s representatives are happy with the conditions put forward and the decision is now with the player.

The Gers gaffer, speaking to the Scottish Sun, said: “Glen’s progress has been brilliant and he has become a real established international player.

“I love the kid and the player and I want him to stay.”

Gerrard also revealed that Alfredo Morelos is back and available for selection. However, the Colombian striker is a couple of sessions short of match fitness and will almost certainly sit out this afternoon’s trip to Tannadice to take on Dundee United.

Kemar Roofe, who was banned from the 2-1 loss to Malmo in the Champions League qualifier in Sweden, is likely to lead the line, but midfielder Ianis Hagi could be out after being injured in last weekend’s win over Livingston in Glasgow although he was named among the substitutes on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Glenn Middleton could be heading back to St Johnstone for a second loan spell.

The Scotland Under-21 winger performed impressively for the Perth outfit last season.
