Rangers transfer news latest: Cifuentes, Kamara, Sakala and Wright



It may well have been one of the busiest transfer windows in recent memory for Rangers – but it looks like they’re not finished yet.

It’s eight summer signings so far for Michael Beale with an all-new attacking department set to be unleashed on the Scottish Premiership this season, starting with Kilmarnock first up. And while it’s up front where most of the changes have come, there have been other additions at the back too.

Midfield could be next and after Nico Raskin and Todd Cantwell were hits after joining in the January window during last season, they’ll soon be joined by Jose Cifuentes. Beale had hinted that the Ecuador midfielder would be in on time for the Killie clash so we should probably expect an announcement any day now.

That will spell the end for Glen Kamara. The Finland star is already training alone and is expected to seal his exit from Ibrox soon, with Beale revealing that talks are ongoing with a number of interested parties.

That puzzles ex-teammate Greg Stewart who said: “Football can be a funny game at times because with Glen, it’s only a couple of years since you really thought he was going places. Obviously new managers come in and have different views on players and where they fit.

“I’m not sure if Glen had a couple of injuries last year too which didn’t help. It’s never nice to hear that players are training on their own. It sounds like he’s had a chat with the manager and decided the best decision is for Glen to go and now it’s about finding a club willing to pay what Rangers want.

“It’s a strange one for me though as I know Glen and what he can do on the pitch. During my time at the club, he was central to everything we did. I thought he could easily have moved to the Premier League or a big European league at that time. I thought clubs would be queuing up for him. That’s the quality he had.

“He’s shown how good he is on the international stage with Finland, bossing games at the Euros. I still think he can do that now. These things happen, you go through wee blips in football. Maybe he just needs a change of scenery to get back to his best because there is a top player in there. That’s undeniable.
