Former Dundee midfielder Glen Kamara has made a bright start to his Rangers career following his January move to Ibrox – but Jim McIntyre’s side must be kicking themselves at letting Kamara go early.

The Finn signed a pre-contract with the Ibrox side at the start of January and saw himself bombed out of the Dundee side as a result.

The two sides eventually came to an agreement that saw Kamara head to Ibrox last month but with the fee reported to be as little as £50,000 then keeping Kamara on Tayside a few months longer could have proved to be far more valuable.

With Dundee only four points from the bottom of the table, there’s a serious risk that they could be playing in the second-tier next season.

Cutting their nose off to spite their face and getting rid of Kamara could well prove to be the biggest mistake they made all season.

Since arriving at Ibrox, Kamara looks to have made a real difference at Ibrox and has put in some really impressive performances.

The Finn has made the Gers’ midfield look much more balanced and has allowed others to get forward and support the attackers.

There’s no doubt that Kamara would have been vital for Dundee over the remainder of the season.

Getting some money back for the former Arsenal youngster was important for Dundee but with only a small amount changing hands then it doesn’t really seem to have been worth it.

If Dundee do suffer the drop this season, the decision to sell Kamara early might well be the straw that broke the camel’s back.
