Rangers boss Michael Beale claims the Ibrox club are now one outgoing transfer away from reaching budget equilibrium in Govan, with all eyes on Glen Kamara.
The Ibrox manager was speaking ahead of the club’s 4-0 victory over Livingston as his new-look Rangers team got their first Premiership win of the season.
Reports in the media have focused heavily on the incoming transfer fees despite Michael Beale’s previous insistence that all was not as it appeared in the Scottish tabloid press.
Once again reiterating the point, Michael Beale claims those Rangers transfer reports are “inflated” and suggested that the club is one transfer, likely Glen Kamara, away from evening up the score.
“We’re one away,” said Michael Beale. “I think some of the prices you guys have inflated a little bit so, yeah, we’re one away from that all evening up.”
With reports suggesting the bones of £15m have been spent on incomings – although this is clearly refuted by the Ibrox manager – this all suggests there is still money to spend for Rangers this summer.
After Michael Beale’s comments all the attention has now shifted on Glen Kamara, who has been the subject of extensive £5.5m transfer interest all summer long.
The latest reporting around the player, and the most reputable, has suggested that no fewer than six clubs are tailing the Finnish international with options in Turkey, Germany and Denmark.
Whilst Leeds United have been repeatedly mentioned in the press, any concrete reporting on the English side’s interest has fizzled out as of late despite much business surrounding the Championship side.
It appears a matter of when not if when it comes to Glen Kamara’s Rangers transfer exit this summer and all attentions will turn to how Michael Beale reinvests any money.
Also speaking ahead of the clash with Livingston, the Rangers boss claimed the club are yet to replace Ryan Kent whilst links persist to familiar centre-back options south of the border.
