Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has played down claims that Juventus have made any contact regarding reported Burnley target Glen Kamara.

Burnley have in the past been linked with a move for Kamara, who is also said to be wanted by Brighton and Crystal Palace.

Italian giants Juventus have since been credited with an interest, but Gerrard was keen to play down any imminent move for the midfielder, who is valued at around £8m.

As per the Glasgow Evening Times, he said: "There’s nothing from Juventus with Glen so I think it’s another made-up story.

"There’s a lot going round at the moment about quite a few of my players but there’s no truth in it.

"It wouldn’t surprise me if there’s top clubs looking at Glen - again he was outstanding, lovely to watch - and as a midfielder myself I really admire his bodywork and his shape, the way he receives the ball.

"He’s a very clever footballer and it wouldn’t surprise me if top clubs were monitoring him but there’s no truth in Juventus."
