STEVEN Gerrard last night revealed Rangers are set to reward Glen Kamara for his outstanding performances this season by handing him a new contract.

Kamara signed a four-and-a-half deal when he joined the Ibrox club in a £50,000 transfer from Dundee in January last year.

The Finnish internationalist has established himself as a regular first team starter in Govan and has featured in all three of their Europa League qualifiers this term.

The former Arsenal kid’s displays have caught the attention of clubs across Europe and Anderlecht have been tipped to make a bid for him before the transfer window closes tomorrow.

However, Gerrard, whose side take on Ross County in the Premiership at Ibrox this afternoon, stressed the 24-year-old isn’t for sale.

The former Liverpool and England midfielder confirmed that Rangers are poised to give the player a new deal.

“Glen Kamara is not going anywhere,” he said. “We are going to offer Glen a new contract when the time is right. The plan was always to get this window out of the way before we spoke about that. Glen is aware of that.

“We love Glen Kamara here. He is a fantastic player. We believe Glen is capable of playing for most teams out there at any level. He is that talented. In terms of what we think of Glen, we want him to stay and be part of this in the short and long term.

“He was phenomenal on Thursday night (in the Europa League play-off win over Galatasaray). He’s a player who will take the ball in any part of the pitch, no matter the scoreline or the crowd reaction, whether they’re with him or against him.

“He will always receive the ball. He takes responsibility and is playing with personality. We’re absolutely delighted with Glen and he deserves a new deal 100 per cent. He won’t be going to Anderlecht. I guarantee you that.”

Meanwhile, Gerrard has stated that he is still looking to strengthen his squad before the transfer window closes – but will only do so if a player who can improve his starting line-up becomes available.

“Myself, the board and Ross (sporting director Wilson) will continue to try and find that right person who we feel will help us for the remainder of this season and hopefully beyond,” he said. “We’re no further forward on that at the moment, but we are actively trying.

“What I would say is, there’s probably a 50-50 chance either way whether it happens or not because this is not a case of just adding a number to cover and put someone in who can fill a squad position. We’re only going to bring someone in if we feel they’re going to make the squad and the XI better.”
