Borussia Dortmund and England midfielder Jude Bellingham has been sent a special World Cup message from Rangers legend Ally McCoist.
The teenager has been one of the stand out performers at this winter’s tournament in Qatar and at 19 is one of the hottest properties in the global game.
In fact, Bellingham has even been named as the tournament’s Most Valuable Player in a new report and the latest is claiming that, as some of the biggest names in the game swirl, Jude is valued at £129m by the Bundesliga club [Times].
It’s been an impressive rise for the player since Bellingham signed for Dortmund for an initial £25m from Birmingham in the summer of 2020.
But whilst the sky is the limit for the Brummie midfielder, there’s a humility to how Bellingham approaches football and the media that makes him one of the most likeable young players in the game.
Rangers legend Ally McCoist sends Jude Bellingham message
One of Bellingham’s favourite pundits is Rangers legend Ally McCoist, of whom the Dortmund star is a self-confessed fan.
As a result, TalkSPORT have facilitated the ex-Ibrox striker and manager sending Jude Bellingham message with Super Ally wishing the midfielder all the best ahead of England’s World Cup clash with Senegal.
Rangers fans already have a very good impression of Jude Bellingham from the midfielder’s visit to Ibrox last season.
The Gers might’ve famously knocked Borussia Dortmund out of the Europa League last season but Jude Bellingham was a stand-out performer in both legs against the Ibrox club.
The midfielder scored in both games – a 4-2 Rangers win in Germany and a 2-2 draw in Scotland – and also caught the attention of Rangers fans for his glowing pre-match comments.
Rangers even responded when Bellingham referred to Ibrox as “one of the best stadiums in Europe”.
Jude Bellingham will now hope to progress with England in the World Cup as the Three Lions try to win the tournament for the first time since 1966.
Meanwhile, another familiar Rangers foe has been handed an £80m price tag after suffering Ibrox heartbreak this season.
