Ex-Rangers star linked to superstar homecoming as celebrations rankle

Ex-Rangers star Aaron Ramsey has been linked to a superstar Wales homecoming alongside international teammate Gareth Bale.

The two Welshmen are undoubtedly the nation’s greatest exports of this generation and both have been on the continent plying their trade.

Ramsey’s ill-fated injury-plagued stint at Juventus won’t be remembered fondly in Italy and with a year left on his indulgently expensive deal all the talk suggests he could be released.

Gareth Bale undoubtedly fared better with Real Madrid and after nine years in the Spanish capital – where his experience was also mixed – the winger is a free agent.

Both players are now being linked with a move to English Championship Cardiff City and a special homecoming at the home of the Welsh club.

This would be a remarkable coup if the Bluebirds could pull it off and according to 90min the Welsh side are readying offers for the pair.

After difficult stints abroad, maybe the chance to come back home to Wales and enjoy their football again will appeal to Aaron Ramsey, 31, and Gareth Bale, 32.

Rangers have also been mentioned as a potential Gareth Bale suitors with ambitious links between the Ibrox club and the ex-Spurs winger.

But what a turn up it would be down south if both Bale and ex-Rangers star Aaron Ramsey rock up at the Cardiff City Stadium next season.

The news also comes after Wales managed to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar at the expense of Ukraine.

The celebrations will stick in the craw of Scotland fans after they saw their side put in a lacklustre display in the 3-1 defeat to the Eastern European nation during the week.

This result might also hurt some Rangers fans, still licking their wounds after the Europa League Final defeat to Frankfurt.

Aaron Ramsey struggled for fitness throughout his entire spell at Rangers before missing the decisive penalty in the Seville Final, leaving a sour taste in the mouths of some.

To see the midfielder lapping up celebrations for Wales after making the World Cup, where Rangers helped to get him fit for little on pitch reward, rankles amongst some given Ramsey’s underwhelming contribution at Ibrox.

Meanwhile, one now ex-Rangers player has said his goodbyes amid links to the likes of Premier League Leeds United.
