Could Gattuso make an emotional return to Rangers?


The departing AC Milan midfielder has revealed that he would like to return to Glasgow and end his career at Rangers, but only if they sort their financial mess out.

Gattuso told Sportitalia: “I’d like to play for Glasgow Rangers, that’s my dream. However, they are going through a complicated situation.

“I’ve spoken to some people who are looking to enter the club, but we’ll have to see what happens next. They are not the only option.

“I’m not bothered about money. I want an experience that will touch me emotionally, I want to feel alive. If in the future I feel as if I’m not in the best shape then I’ll hand my contract back to whichever club I sign for.”

Gattuso added: “But the club are in a deep crisis, they’re in controlled administration. I went there when I was unknown and they improved me. I’d like to go back there for a year.”

The Italian was signed by Walter Smith in 1997, made 34 appearances for the Ibrox side, scoring three times. However Gattuso did not fit into Dick Advocaat’s plans and was sold to Serie A side Salernitana for £4 million, before moving to AC Milan a year later.

Gattuso’s comments could be just a romantic dream out of touching distance for the aggressive midfielder. As he has experienced vision problems since early September 2011. He was diagnosed with paralysis of the sixth cranial nerve, resulting in diplopia in Gattuso’s left eye, an injury that despite his own determination could eventually spell the end of his football career.

Not only that but the financial strangulation at Rangers could prevent Gattuso making the move to Ibrox, especially with the club facing a 12 month transfer embargo, which they are currently appealing.
