Charlie Adam has said that he would love to return to Glasgow Rangers, but there is no chance of him making a move to Ibrox this summer.
The former Scotland international started his career with the Gers, scoring 15 goals and providing 11 assists in 77 appearances in all competitions. His performances for the 54-time Scottish champions earned him a move to Blackpool, from where he moved to Liverpool, Stoke City and Reading.
Now a free agent, Adam has been discussing the prospect of returning to the Gers, and whilst he has admitted that he would like to go back, he cannot see it happening. He told GoRadio (via GlasgowLive):
“Everybody wants to play for a big club and everybody wants to contribute.
“Is it disappointing when the club are looking at positions where they want to improve? Do I feel that I could still contribute to Rangers? Absolutely.
“But the manager and the director of football want to go in a different way.
“They’ve got a big job on their hands this season and we’ll see what happens.
“Scottish football is where it started for me, it’s something I keep an eye on and I’d never rule anything out.”
In his prime, Adam was a very handy footballer, even in the Premier League. He scored 12 and provided eight assists for the Seasiders during their only season in the English top flight, and after Liverpool had parted with £7.5m to take him to Anfield, he provided 10 assists in 28 league matches during the 2011/12 campaign.
Would you like Charlie Adam to return to Ibrox?
Of course, his best days are behind him, but on a free transfer there is surely little risk in taking him to Ibrox. As the likes of Brian Laudrup call for the Gers to sign another creative midfielder, it is a shame that Ross Wilson and Steven Gerrard have not explored the option of signing the 34-year-old.
