Ryan Babel has said in a Q&A that he would play for Glasgow Rangers with Steven Gerrard as manager.
The Netherlands international is something of a journeyman at this point in his career, having played for no fewer than nine clubs, but he has still had plenty of distinguished moments in football. He has won nine trophies – including three league titles – during his career at club level, appearing for sides such as Liverpool, Galatasaray, Ajax and Besiktas, whilst he also has 63 caps for his country – he went to the 2010 World Cup, in which the Oranje made the final, although he didn’t actually play in that tournament (as per Transfermarkt).
On Sport Bible’s Instagram page, he took part in a Q&A, allowing fans to ask him a series of questions. One of those was, if he were to make the move to Scotland, which club would he join, to which he replied: “I think I would play for Rangers just for the fact that Steven Gerrard is the coach.”
Would you like Ryan Babel to sign for Rangers?
It would be some coup for the ‘Gers if Babel were to make the move to Ibrox. Whilst he may now be 33, he is a player with a huge wealth of experience that his former Liverpool team-mate could put to good use. Only two years ago, he scored 13 goals and provided six assists in just 32 matches for Besiktas, whilst he has scored 117 goals in his career, according to Transfermarkt. If he could produce that sort of form for the Glasgow side, then he would be a coup for Gerrard.
