Ex-Rangers star Nathan Patterson claims he has “unfinished business” at Ibrox and wants to return one day in the future following his move to Everton.

The Scotland international right-back, 21, is now flying in the Everton first team after taking a little time to settle and struggling with injury during his first six months at Goodison Park.

After breaking through at Ibrox, the talented right-back broke the club’s then transfer record to secure a £12m deal with the Toffees which could rise to £16m in the seasons ahead in the last January window [Sky Sports].

But whilst Nathan Patterson has now established himself at Everton, the kid has been speaking about how one day he’d love to return to Rangers to leave an imprint on the club.

In the modern age finances will always dictate a player’s future at Rangers and if the right money lands for any player then the club will be forced to sell.

That doesn’t mean it’s the end of the Nathan Patterson story at Rangers and the talented Everton star claims he has a return in his sight at some stage of his career.

Everton star Nathan Patterson would love future Rangers return

“Of course I’d love to go back to Rangers later on in my career and finish what I started,” said Patterson [Daily Record].

“It would be great to finish at Ibrox. It’s where I started off my career so it would be nice to play in front of those fans again.

”There’s a bit of unfinished business for me. I was involved in 55 but I’d like to go back and get more titles.

“I went to Seville last summer for the Europa League Final and hoped they could win it but they just fell short. Just seeing Rangers in a European final again was massive, though, and it shows how far the club has come.

“But right now, I’m really happy at Everton and want to continue to progress here and I’m fully focused on doing well at Goodison.”

We’re sure Nathan Patterson would be welcome back at Rangers with open arms but for the time being the focus is on delivering for Everton in the Premier League.

So far this season the talented right-back has made 12 appearances for Frank Lampard’s side and has now made a total of 11 appearances for the Scotland national team.

Meanwhile, another young Rangers wing-back is going nowhere despite high-profile exit links.
