RANGERS flop Aaron Ramsey has finally left Juventus – and is poised to land a whopping £3.4MILLION pay-out from the Serie A outfit.

The Welsh midfielder, who spent an ill-fated six months at Ibrox in the second half of the season, has been involved in a bitter contract wrangle throughout the summer with the Italian giants.

Ramsey still had a year to run on his lucrative £400,000-per-week deal, but has now agreed a money-spinning exit, according to a report in the Scottish Sun.

FAREWELL…Aaron Ramsey applauds the fans as he goes off injured early in Rangers’ 2-1 Scottish Cup semi-final extra-time win over Celtic in April.

The 32-year-old former Arsenal star was left out of the Turin outfit’s pre-season tour of the United States – and received no squad number for the forthcoming campaign.

Following his snub from the club at the start of last season, he was signed by Giovanni van Brockhorst in January on a short-term transfer as the Gers aimed to win back-to-back titles.

However, Ramsey, hampered by a lack of fitness and injuries, struggled to make an impact in Glasgow as Ange Postecoglou’s Celtic side overtook the Govan club at the start of February and remained in pole position for the remainder of the term to lift the crown.

The experienced international did win a Scottish Cup medal following the 2-0 victory over Hearts as he brought down the curtain on his brief career at the Light Blues.

EURO AGONY…Aaron Ramsey holds his head as he walks past the Europa League Cup at the medal presentation.

Unfortunately, he is more likely to be remembered for missing a penalty-kick in the crucial shoot-out against Eintracht Frankfurt in Seville three days before the Hampden match.

Ramsey was the only Gers player to fluff his kick as the Germans won the Europa League Cup 5-4 on pens after a 1-1 stalemate following extra-time.

Now the player is up for grabs and has been linked with Premier League new boys Nottingham Forest while Turkish aces Galatasaray are reported to be monitoring his situation.
