Rangers trio Glen Kamara, Nathan Patterson and Ryan Kent will all remain with the Scottish champions this summer, according to The Athletic‘s Jordan Campbell:
A couple of loans out the way will happen at Ibrox today but it’s looking like Rangers will hold on to their top players.
Morelos & Barisic both staying. Dan James to Leeds has killed prospect of Kent, while Kamara is expected to extend & Patterson to Everton won’t happen now.

Kamara has been heavily linked with Arsenal, West Ham, Everton and Watford in recent weeks but the Finnish international looks set to sign a contract extension. His current deal at Ibrox expires in 2023.
As Campbell also mentions, Patterson’s move to Everton is off after the Gers rejected a second bid, worth £8m plus add-ons, for the teenager earlier this week.
With Manchester United winger Dan James now heading to Leeds, it means the Whites’ lengthy pursuit of Kent has finally come to an end.
Keeping all three players at Rangers will be a massive boost for manager Steven Gerrard. Patterson is the future of the club, while Kent and Kamara are key players who will be integral to the Light Blues’ attempts to retain the league title.
