ormer Rangers winger Barrie McKay believes he still has unfinished business at Ibrox and would love a return one day.
The winger was axed in 2017 by Pedro Caixinha as the winger ran his contract down and was sold to Nottingham Forest.

After leaving Ibrox, his spell with Forest was short-lived before being quickly moved on to Swansea City in the summer.
McKay admitted that he is happy at Swansea but if the chance arose, he’d “jump” at an Ibrox return.
“Despite what happened with me, I have always said I would like to go back. If the opportunity ever came further down the line I would jump at it,” McKay told The Sun.
“You could say there is unfinished business.
“It is a huge club and it was an honour and a privilege to play for them. But for the moment I’m probably the most content and settled I’ve ever been at Swansea.”

Despite McKay’s comments about wanting to return, many Rangers fans will still remember his claims following his Ibrox exit.
Speaking shortly after his move, McKay claimed he “wasn’t being treated the way any human being should be treated.
There’s little doubt McKay has talent but his mentality was called into question repeatedly during his time with the Gers.
The winger had a tendency to hide in games when things weren’t going his way and simply didn’t offer enough on a consistent basis.

That may have changed during his time in English football but it’ll take a lot to convince Gers fans otherwise.
After Glenn Middleton’s breakthrough this season, there’s no pressing need for a left winger at Ibrox – and Middleton has arguably shown more than McKay did in his final season with the club.
McKay might feel he has unfinished business but finding fans who agree with that will be a difficult task.
