Former Rangers youth Charlie Adam has seemingly made another ‘come and get me plea’ to manager Steven Gerrard as he continues to suffer a lack of game time at current club Stoke City.
With six appearances to his name for them so far in the Championship season of 2018/19, he last made the pitch for manager Gary Rowett back at the end of October and as the season has progressed you could argue he’s spent more time talking up a return to Ibrox.
With the rumour mill in full flow the story has again gained traction and gets strengthened by playing alongside Gerrard previously at Liverpool, but I don’t for a second imagine we’ll be interested in the 33-year-old.
Certainly not if rumours linking us with Southampton midfielder Steven Davis are true.
Speaking to Sky Sports yesterday, he said.
“At the moment I am still contracted to Stoke. But I want to play and hopefully there are opportunities during the window to play somewhere. The Rangers thing is something that would interest me, absolutely. I have been back more times this season than in the last four or five years. I can see it is going in the right direction.”
Having then said all the right things about the club once more, he goes on to say there has been no contact, so as yet there is nothing in a possible move.
“We are talking up something that is not there, but everyone knows I started my career at Rangers, I played in front of 50,000 with the pressure. It is something I’d relish and enjoy. I want to play.”
Again, it’s not something it seems fans want and if Gerrard was interested, there would’ve been contact by now.
Charlie Adam return? JUST NO!!!

I’m not sure I’d want Charlie Adam back at Rangers.

I couldn’t see this one happening last time it reared its head, I still can’t now.
