Former Manchester United prodigy Ravel Morrison has sparked rumours of a move to Rangers after he followed the club and several key figures on Instagram.
The creative midfielder followed the Rangers account, Steven Gerrard, Ryan Kent and Joe Worrall on the social media platform.
Whilst this is no confirmation, it’s difficult to recall a case were this kind of story broke and the player never joined the club. Whilst we can’t assume anything, is Morrison following these accounts for a laugh?
The troubled attacking midfielder was considered a huge talent and currently plies his trade in Italy with Lazio. He is yet to play for the Italian giants this season.
“The most talented youngster Sir Alex ever saw”
Still only 25, the talented Ravel Morrison came through at Manchester United. Whilst there, Sir Alex Ferguson said he was the most gifted young kid he ever seen. At least according to Rio Ferdinand.
But the youngster had a troubled youth and numerous off-field issues early in his career, leading to a lack of focus. A player of clear ability, he never settled at Old Trafford and eventually left for West Ham United.
Since being in Italy he’s been sent out on loan twice. Once to QPR, and the most latest, to Atlas in Mexico.
Is his next stop Glasgow with Rangers? It is a move which will certainly split fan opinion if it comes to fruition. But it could solve Rangers’ need for a creative, goalscoring number 10.
And If Gerrard can get the best out of this boy, we might be on to something special.
Morrison would be Rangers fifth signing of a busy January window. The club concluded loan deals for Jermain Defoe and Steven Davis earlier this month. Whilst Jordan Jones and Glen Kamara have agreed pre-contracts with a view to joining next season.
