Ravel Morrison has told The Times that Rangers manager Steven Gerrard wanted to bring him to Ibrox in the January transfer window.

The 26-year-old former Manchester United and West Ham United midfielder has disclosed that Gerrard, who was appointed the Rangers manager in the summer of 2018, was willing to sit down with him and discuss a potential move to the Gers.


Morrison, though, did not join Rangers, and the former England Under-21 international has now moved to Swedish top-flight club Ostersunds FK.

Morrison told The Times about Gerrard: “He’s a legend in football and he was willing to sit down and have a really good conversation. Certain old-school managers wouldn’t have done that.”

Title challenge

Morrison is a talented midfielder who will have been a good signing for Rangers, as the Gers attempt to win the Scottish Premiership title this season.

Gerrard’s side are second in the league table at the moment with 51 points from 25 matches, six points behind leaders and Old Firm rivals Celtic.

Rangers will return to action on Saturday afternoon when they take on St Johnstone at Ibrox in the Scottish Premiership.

The Gers will head into the match as favourites, and the Ibrox club should be able to pick up all three points from the encounter with relative ease.
