GLEN KAMARA admits he's struggled for confidence because he hasn't made many starts for Rangers this season, under Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

The Finland midfielder is at the centre of another racism storm after playing for his country in their 2-0 win in Montenegro on Monday.

UEFA have launched an investigation after he was allegedly targeted by a home player during the game. He was previously racially abused by Czech defender Ondrej Kudela, during a Europa League match, and received a ten-game ban.

Kamara, 26, has been at the centre of transfer speculation this season having made a sluggish start to the season - he has made just two league starts for Rangers this term, the last of which came when he was hooked at half time in their Old Firm hammering at Celtic.

And he admitted that he's not in an ideal situation at Ibrox at the moment.

He said: "The head coach decides the team. Whether I'm on the bench or on the pitch, I'll do my job.

"I work hard, I just have to keep doing it. That's the truth.

"Sometimes I know why I'm not in the starting line-up. I've talked to the manager sometimes after games or before a match.

"Of course, it's difficult to have full confidence when I don't get to play.

"I haven't played in that many games now or started many. It hasn't been easy.

"As I said, you have to keep working and then everything will be fine."

And former Arsenal player Kamara, in an interview in Finnish publication Helsingin Sanomat, admits he's made no secret that he would love to try and move up a level.

He said: "I have always dreamed of playing in the Premier League. And perhaps not just playing in the English Premier League, but in the Top Five leagues in general. They all interest me.

"Let's see what happens.

"My time at Rangers has been good. The club has been good to me. I've been there for almost four years. Who knows what the future will bring. Maybe we just have to wait and see what happens."

And Kamara - who insisted he had moved on from the Kudela incident 'a long time ago' - revealed how much he regrets Rangers falling at the final hurdle last season in that agonising penalty kick shoot-out defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League Final.

He recalled: "The place in the final was a huge deal for the club and the fans. It was something that many of us players hadn't experienced before. It was something new and at the same time a little unreal.

"After beating RB Leipzig, it hit me that we are indeed in the final. Maybe I only realised it properly a few days later.

"It was definitely an experience, but of course, I would like to have won the final. We just weren't good enough on the day. It was hard to digest that result.

"That was a highlight and definitely winning the league was too. It was a strange time because of Covid. Of course, winning the Scottish Cup was also a highlight."
