Rangers fans have responded to Sheffield United star John Fleck’s comments in which he admits he would ‘love’ to return to Ibrox in the future [Sky Sports].
The 28-year-old began his career with the Gers, making just over 50 appearances in all competitions between 2007 and 2012.
After upping sticks and moving to England, he enjoyed a four-year stint with Coventry City before joining Sheffield United in 2016.
The Blades were promoted to the Premier League for the 2019/20 season and the midfielder has remained a regular under Chris Wilder, making 25 appearances and scoring five goals.
His success in England hasn’t put him off a future return to Glasgow, though.
“I’m very happy at Sheffield United,” Fleck told fellow ex-Ger Kris Boyd during a Sky Sports interview. “As long as that continues, then great. But if the chance came along down the line, then I would love it to be honest.”
“I wouldn’t say I have unfinished business because I was a very small part of a successful team, back then.”
“I was delighted to get great memories out of that squad and the club at the time.”
These are certainly interesting comments from Fleck, who has been one of the surprise packages in the Premier League this season.
Judging by the response on social media, plenty of Bears would welcome him back with open arms, too.
Here’s a selection of reactions from Twitter:
