Rangers legend Johnstone, who won the league title thrice and the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup once with the Ibrox club, has predicted that the 36-year-old centre-back will be part of Steven Gerrard’s team for the 2018-19 campaign.
Johnstone wrote in The Glasgow Evening Times: “Bruno Alves is a player who has been accused of lacking commitment; however, I am not convinced that we have seen the last of the Portuguese.
“I fancy Gerrard will play with a three-man defence and that is why I feel the veteran defender might be kept on.”
Bruno Alves stay at Rangers
Alves did not have a great season on a personal level for Rangers during the 2017-18 campaign.
However, there is no doubt that the Euro 2016 winner is a very good defender, and although he is past his time, he can still do a good job under new Rangers manager Gerrard.
