Jim White tweeted a photo with former Rangers player Joe Worrall from Wembley on Wednesday amid significant transfer interest in the defender.
Worrall spent the 2018/19 season on loan at Rangers from Nottingham Forest and divided opinion amongst the fan base.
He put in some impressive performances in Europa League and Old Firm matches but some fans were unable to forgive him for a number of errors, including a particularly costly one at Kilmarnock soon after the winter break.
It’s now two years since he left Ibrox but Sky Sports and talkSPORT presenter White made sure to reference the 24-year-old’s connection to the club when tweeting a photo alongside him from Wembley on Wednesday.

Since moving back to the City Ground, Worrall has earned the captaincy at his boyhood club as well as their 2020/21 Player of the Year award.
His performances have attracted plenty of attention and several Premier League clubs including Brentford and Burnley are now said to be circling.
Paul Taylor of the Athletic has claimed that Worrall isn’t looking to force a move away from Forest in this window, but if his asking price – thought to be around £10m [The Sun] – is met, the Championship club may find it hard to say no.
The former England youth international has certainly come on leaps and bounds since leaving Rangers and although he wasn’t every fan’s cup of tea during his time at Ibrox, he’s developing into a top-quality centre-back.
Meanwhile, a popular player who turned out alongside Worrall during his own stint at Ibrox has responded to a tweet from Rangers with a heartfelt message.
