Former Rangers winger Barrie McKay has admitted he would love a return to Ibrox one day, less than two years after leaving the club for Nottingham Forest.

Once thought of as an excellent prospect coming through the ranks at Rangers, fan opinion eventually turned on the player after it became apparent he would not be staying Ibrox for a long-term.

However, he’s put his exit on the shoulders of the Ibrox decision makers, claiming that he would have liked to stay in Govan had the situation been handled differently.

Now he’s looking for a return to Gers.

As quoted by The Scottish Sun, he said:

I have always said I would like to go back. If the opportunity ever came further down the line I would jump at it. You could say there is unfinished business.

It is a huge club and it was an honour and a privilege to play for them. But for the moment I’m probably the most content and settled I’ve ever been at Swansea.

Swansea City are currently pushing for a play-off spot in the English second-tier and McKay has been a regular all season, so far making 19 appearances out of 28. With a goal and four assists, his direct goal contribution tally hasn’t been spectacular.

Still, if we find ourselves in need of a left winger in future then he could be an intriguing option, especially if he continues to play consistently at a decent level like the Championship.

Sadly it never quite worked out first time around, but could he prove himself to be the Ibrox hero he once looked like being?
