GIOVANNI VAN BRONCKHORST was reportedly involved in a “disagreement” with midfielder Glenn Kamara following the 1-1 draw with St Mirren in Paisley yesterday.

Tensions were running high as the Ibrox club failed to put pressure on Celtic before they kicked off later in the afternoon against Ross County at Parkhead – a game they eventually won 2-1 to ease nine points ahead of their city rivals going into the month-long World Cup break.

Gers required a VAR-assisted penalty-kick from James Tavernier to salvage a draw against Stephen Robinson’s side who had taken the lead through Jonah Uyunga shortly after the break.

FINAL WHISTLE…disappointed Giovanni van Bronckhorst with St Mirren boss Stephen Robinson.

There have been stories of disharmony in the Govan club’s dressing room with Finland international Kamara reportedly left upset after being replaced at half-time with Scott Arfield coming on in his place.

Kamara failed to remerge to watch during the second half.

A report stated Kamara “was in the foyer fully dressed after being hooked at half-time and stood in the tunnel area sporting his sponsored Red Bull beanie hat”.

Things appeared to boil over at the full-time whistle with the report suggesting “a disagreement occurred between both at full-time”.

Kamara, bought by ex-boss Steven Gerrard from Dundee, has been used sparingly by the Dutch man so far in this campaign while he has also been hampered by injury problems.

Van Bronckhorst, speaking to Sky Sports, explained: “I had to substitute him because I think the team needed a change with Scotty and more runs from midfield in the right position.

“That is all I had to say about him.”
