Kenny Miller Urges Glen Kamara to Leave Rangers Amid Solo Training Directive

In a recent turn of events at Rangers, Glen Kamara, the 27-year-old midfielder, has found himself in a precarious situation, prompting former Rangers striker Kenny Miller to voice his concerns and encourage Kamara to seek a new path. Reports suggest that Kamara has been instructed to train in isolation at Auchenhowie, raising eyebrows and speculations about his future at Ibrox.

The summer transfer window has been rife with speculation surrounding Kamara’s potential departure from Rangers. The Finnish international notably missed out on participation in the pre-season matches and was conspicuously absent from the squad during the Scottish Premiership opener against Kilmarnock on August 5th.

While Rangers’ Michael Beale has vehemently denied any existing discord between him and Kamara, Miller, now a BBC Scotland pundit, expresses skepticism regarding the situation’s underlying dynamics. In his candid assessment, Miller emphasizes, “Glen Kamara has already been told to stay away and train on his own. That’s not a good vibe.” Miller’s thoughts were shared in his column in the Daily Record’s print edition on Sunday, August 6th.

Miller, who understands the impact of such internal turmoil on a player’s performance, further laments, “Especially when it’s a player who has done really well for the club. He has been a big player for Rangers since he joined from Dundee. So it’s not good news – I don’t like reading that sort of stuff.”

In Miller’s view, the potential fallout from this situation extends beyond Kamara’s individual career. He contends, “For Glen’s career and for the club, he has to move on. Michael can’t have that hanging over him. And Kamara won’t be the only one in that situation.”

Despite the understandable nature of Kamara’s position, Miller asserts that a sense of respect and professionalism should prevail within the club’s internal dealings. He suggests that Beale’s handling of the situation could be more considerate, offering, “If the Gers had made their minds up a while back to get rid of the former Dundee and Arsenal midfielder, they would have surely had plans in place to sell him.”

Regrettably, the Scottish Premiership season is underway, and Kamara remains on the Rangers roster. The decision to isolate Kamara during training sessions poses potential setbacks for both player and club. Miller explains, “It’s no doubt hurting him to be training alone and not be playing any role in matches because clubs will know that if they sign him now, he’ll have a lot of catching up to do.”

Miller also points out the unintended consequences of this decision for Rangers as a club. The prolonged absence of Kamara from the playing field hinders the club’s ability to sell him at an optimal price. “Rangers, therefore, shoot themselves in the foot because it makes Kamara harder to sell and makes it less likely they’ll get the money they want for him.”

Looking at the bigger picture, Miller casts a critical eye on Rangers’ squad management under Beale. He notes, “Beale has over-expanded his squad at Ibrox – a lot of players need to leave.” Despite high-profile departures earlier in the summer, the influx of nine new first-team signings alongside an already substantial squad raises questions about tactical coherence and player utilization.

In conclusion, Glen Kamara’s predicament at Rangers serves as a cautionary tale about the delicate balance between player development, squad management, and respecting the players’ contributions. Kenny Miller’s insights shed light on the complexities of this situation and call for a more nuanced approach to handling player transitions within the club. As the season progresses, it remains to be seen whether Rangers will heed Miller’s advice and pave a smoother path for Kamara’s potential departure.
