Homecomings in football are one of the best elements of the sport.
When a player leaves his boyhood team for bigger and greener pastures only to realise that home was were he belonged all along is something we have seen a lot in football over the years, from Mario Gotze and Borussia Dortmund to Thierry Henry and Arsenal, a successful homecoming is one of the more beautiful and heart-warming aspects of football.
And for Rangers, they could be about to experience their own hero’s welcome this summer in the form of Lewis Macleod.
The Brentford midfielder was recently confirmed as one of the players who will be leaving the Bees this summer at the end of their contract, and according to the Scottish Sun, Rangers are monitoring the situation with Macleod heading into the transfer window.
Leeds United are also interested in the 24-year-old midfielder who made 74 appearances for Rangers before his move to Brentford in 2014, and re-signing the former Scotland U-21 international could be some good business for the Glaswegian side.
Macleod would be welcome back at Rangers with open arms from the fans, and alongside current midfielder Scott Arfield, the duo can form an incredibly promising midfield partnership for the Gers next season.
The Rangers academy graduate returning home would be the feel-good story that gets fans excited about the prospect of next season, and Arfield would also obtain a new partner in the team that can help lead the team to potential glory in the 2019/10 campaign.
Rangers fans, would you re-sign Macleod this summer? Let us know!
