Former Motherwell midfielder Chris Humphrey has claimed that he turned down a move to Glasgow Rangers in 2013.
Humphrey spent four years with the Scottish side before leaving in 2013, and was approached by the Gers. However, they were playing in the fourth tier of the footballing pyramid north of the border at the time, having entered financial difficulties, and as such Humphrey moved to Preston instead.
“I’m surprised DJ hasn’t gone to the Premier League by now. I thought this year might be the year. He did really well last season.
“If someone like Rangers come in for you in the circumstances they are in right now then it’s a no-brainer.
“When I left Motherwell and they came in for me, it was a different circumstance as they were in the bottom league. But for Daniel with everything that’s at stake this year and European football then it will definitely appeal.”
Humphrey was not exactly the most prolific with Motherwell – he managed just nine goals and 28 assists in 163 matches during his time there, with him picking up 20 and 56 in 406 respectively throughout his career. However, he had plenty of experience north of the border, and would have likely been a valuable addition to the side.

The Gers, though, didn’t need him to get back into the top flight.
