Former Rangers and Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam is set to make his return to Ibrox to play in this weekend’s Legends game between his former clubs – but some Gers fans are not happy at Adam’s involvement.
The midfielder was named in the squads confirmed by Rangers last night but some of his previous comments about the Light Blues haven’t been forgotten and Gers fans are, rightly, not happy.

Back when he was at Liverpool, Adam told in an interview how he wasn’t interested in the club’s financial problems beyond how it affected his younger brother Grant – and some Rangers fans have never forgiven him.
Adam made 77 appearances for Rangers during his time at Ibrox, scoring 15 times and contributing 11 assists before moving south to sign for Blackpool.
Speaking in 2012, Adam told the Telegraph: “I am not interested. Simple as that. It is nothing to do with me, I don’t need to say anything. The only person I am interested in is my brother. My brother is there and for me, that’s the important thing. He might lose his job and it is going to be difficult.”
With the squads already pretty underwhelming for this weekend’s game, Adam’s involvement won’t do many favours for Rangers as fans voice their displeasure at the Liverpool flop being involved – with one saying the Reading midfielder “has a cheek” given his previous comments.
Here are some of the best comments from Gers fans:
You’ve got an absolute cheek https://t.co/xtzNFwGKwW

Swap Charlie Adam over to Liverpool and it's alright.
