FORMER Rangers midfielder Neil McCann reckons that Arsenal will be feeling a bit silly after letting Glen Kamara leave the Emirates Stadium for nothing in 2017 - adding that he would WALK into Mikel Arteta's starting XI just now.

McCann knows Kamara well, having handed him a route back into the game by snapping up the Finland internationalist on a free transfer for his Dundee side.

The classy midfielder caught they eye at Dens Park before sealing a move to Ibrox for the bargain price of £50,000 two years ago and hasn't looked back since.

With the Gunners struggling in the Premier League this term, McCann reckons they could really use a player like Kamara to turn their season around - with the ex-Rangers star adding that he believes his old player is good enough to play for Arsenal standing on his HEAD.

He told Rangers TV: "It’s ironic he left Arsenal because he was deemed not good enough.

“I believe he could play for Arsenal now standing on his head – he’s that good. That boy has the ability to play at a very high level.

“He’s shown it for Finland and Rangers but I hope he doesn’t go anywhere because I want to see him be a success and he is standing on the edge of winning a title.

“It only took me five minutes with Glen [to recognise his quality].

“There wasn’t much to see in an Arsenal jersey but he’s got the pedigree and I was looking for a footballer who could be brave, take it off the centre-back and build from the back under pressure.

“After five minutes I knew he was a player and we’d found one.”
