FROZEN-OUT Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam has revealed he is open to returning to Rangers.

The former Scotland international midfielder left Ibrox nine-and-a-half years ago in a £500,000 switch to Blackpool.

Adam has been ignored by Potteries boss Gary Rowett has not played for A MONTH and admitted he will have to assess his options in the January transfer market.

The 32-year-old ex-Liverpool ace has not figured since he was subbed after coming on as a substitute in the 1-0 win at Bristol City in the Championship.

\Adam, who made 61 league appearances for the Gers before his July 2009 move, said: “It’s a wonderful club and I had great times there.

“Obviously, Steven Gerrard’s there and he seems to be enjoying it. You want to be part of something special.

“He has an aura and a presence. If there was an opportunity to go back, then great. I think it might be difficult given the number of players that they have, but you never know in football.”

Adam, who has made just three league appearance in this campaign, added: “It’s frustrating. When you’re not playing, it’s very difficult.

“But the new manager has come and brought his own players in. I just have to keep working hard. The window is opening in January and we’ll look at that and see what happens.”
