Rangers: Tyrese Campbell had talks with Gers

Rangers: Tyrese Campbell had talks with Gers - Rangers News

Former Arsenal and Everton striker Kevin Campbell has said his son Tyrese could have moved to Glasgow Rangers after the two parties held talks.

Campbell talked to Gers

Last January, it seems like the Gers were interested in taking the 20-year-old north of the border as he approached the end of his contract at Stoke City. In the end, he signed a new deal with the Potters.

Who scored more goals for the Gers?

Now, Campbell’s father Kevin has confirmed that there were talks with the Ibrox outfit. He told Football Insider:

“I know that there were talks with Rangers because he could talk to them. I believe that he spoke to Rangers but he felt that at this time in his career and his development, the best place was Stoke.

“That was because of Michael O’Neill. It was not the right time for him.

“Rangers are a huge club and he has earned that interest. You do not get linked with those sort of clubs if you cannot do it.

“It was flattering, of course it was but it was the realisation of the level he was at. When you are at that level you need to be consistent because everyone is watching you.

“People are always watching him and that is what I told him. He is only 20 and a left-footer.”

Promising talent

Although he is just 20, Campbell already has 72 appearances to his name as a professional. On loan at Shrewsbury Town, he scored five times in 15 matches, whilst he has netted 14 times in 57 games for Stoke. This season, in particular, he has impressed, scoring twice and providing four assists in just eight matches.

Previously called a “great finisher” by O’Neill, Campbell appears to have a good future ahead of him, and on a free transfer he could have been an interesting acquisition for Steven Gerrard. Currently valued at £4.05m (Transfermarkt), it seems they may have missed their chance to capture his services, at least in the short term.
