Ex-Rangers midfielder Lewis Macleod to be released by Brentford - report

Former Rangers youngster Lewis Macleod is reportedly set to be released from Brentford.
With his contract set to expire, Macleod joins four other names set to leave the Greater London club in the summer. It brings to an end four and a half injury plagued years at Griffin Park since he moved to the Championship club from Ibrox.
Still only 24, is the once highly rated midfielder someone Rangers might look to this summer? Or has his time at the club been and gone?

Macleod was one of the few bright sparks in a challenging period for the Ibrox club. The midfielder was a solid fixture in the Rangers side as a teenager.
At the beginning of the 2013/14 season, the Scottish youngster hit four goals in seven games. One of those was a stunning overhead kick against Ayr United.

But despite being a key first-team player at the time, Macleod moved to Brentford for £850k at the beginning of the January transfer window in 2015.

Despite promising much, Macleod’s time in England was hampered by injuries. His first two seasons were spent largely on the treatment table and he has struggled to recover.
Whilst there’s no doubt he’ll be looking to resurrect his career elsewhere, it is unlikely to be at Ibrox.

Rangers have an abundance of midfield talent and Macleod, at this stage of his career, must be playing regularly.

Plus, would he get the nod ahead of the likes of this Scottish born midfield talent who’s coming back to Rangers off the back of an almighty season in England?
