Laudrup to return to Ibrox?



Rangers legend Brian Laudrup is reportedly in talks with club chief executive Charles Green with a view to returning to Ibrox as a club ambassador.

The 44-year-old was at Ibrox today for discussions with Green, according to the official club website, with the pair discussing a number of issues and how to take Rangers forward.

Laudrup said: “Since Rangers went into these chaotic circumstances, I have said all along that if I could help the club in any way I would do it. I’ve been here today to speak to Charles a little bit and we’ll see if we can find a way for me to do that. To be able to be an ambassador for Rangers Football Club would be absolutely fantastic and we want to see if we can find a way to work together.”

Laudrup made 151 appearances for the Ibrox side, scoring 45 goal in the process and accumulating three league championships, one Scottish Cup and one League Cup.

The former Danish international added: “If the club wants me to help – and it looks like it does – I would love to do it. I have always said I had four tremendous years at Rangers.

“The issue at the moment is to find a way in which I can help and it has been fantastic to meet Charles. He is a fantastic man to speak to and he has a great vision for this club. Now we just have to sit down at some point and formalise things so that we can work together, that would be great.”

Laudrup joined Rangers back in 1994, with Walter Smith snapping up the then-Fiorentina player for £2.3 million. He went on to become a club legend and was voted the greatest foreign Rangers player of all time, as well as playing a pivotal role in Rangers securing their ninth league title in a row.

If Laudrup rejoins the club, he will join the likes of Mark Hateley as one of a number club ambassadors, promoting Rangers across the UK, Europe and beyond.
