Glen Kamara has signed a new contract at Rangers until the summer of 2025.

The Scottish champions confirmed the deal and added: “Kamara, 25, has been outstanding for the Light Blues both domestically and in Europe since his arrival from Dundee in the January 2019 transfer window.

“He has established himself as a key member not only of Steven Gerrard’s first-team squad, but also of the Finland national team, where he played a major role in helping them qualify for their first-ever major tournament – Euro 2020.

“A hugely popular figure with his team-mates and the Rangers support, Kamara now has the opportunity to add to his 115 appearances and Scottish Premiership winners’ medal for the club thus far.”

Kamara said: “I am delighted to have committed my long-term future to Rangers.

“I have absolutely loved my time here and being a part of the title-winning team last season has given me the hunger to try to win even more in the seasons ahead.

“It was an easy decision for me to sign and I want to thank the manager, Ross Wilson and the board for the faith they have shown in me.”
