Former Rangers defender Jon Flanagan is still without a club despite reports suggesting he was primed to sign for Amiens [Le11Amienois].

Flanagan was one of six players released by the club in the summer after their contracts had come to an end.

The other five former Gers have since joined new clubs with Jak Alnwick, Jason Holt and Andy Halliday staying in Scotland, signing for St Mirren, Livingston and Hearts respectively.

Meanwhile, Jordan Rossiter and Wes Foderingham returned to England. The former signed for EFL League One club Fleetwood Town and the latter, for Premier League outfit Sheffield United.

Flanagan hasn’t yet resolved his future, though, despite suggestions last month that a surprise move to France was close.


Le11Amienois reported that Amiens manager, Luka Elsner, was an admirer of the full-back, with the Glasgow Times claiming on 24 September that a deal was likely only days away.

Rangers have since done business with the Ligue 2 outfit, signing Bongani Zungu on an initial loan deal on deadline day.

Yet, a month after the reports on Flanagan, his own move appears to have fallen through, with the player still clubless.

The tough-tackling former Liverpool defender is still only 27, so he should have several years left in the professional game.

However, he has had injury problems in the past and struggled to put together high-level performances during his time at Ibrox.

Across two years at the club, he made 39 appearances, providing a solitary assist.
