Burt was among the first to be informed by the Rangers manager, Steven Gerrard, that his services were no longer required at Ibrox.

Rangers fans are reacting after a player released from Ibrox this summer turned up at Celtic’s training ground on Friday.

Liam Burt was among the first to be informed by the Rangers manager, Steven Gerrard, that his services were no longer required.

Burt later expressed his sadness at leaving Rangers on Twitter, but that message has now been deleted.

And a return to Celtic, where he played before switching to Rangers’ youth set up in 2014, could now be on the cards, with The Scottish Sun reporting he will spend the next few weeks training with the Bhoys.

Burt played just three times for Rangers’ first team – but never under Gerrard – and had in recent seasons spent time on loan with Alloa Athletic and Dumbarton.

Nevertheless, those of a Rangers persuasion are not best pleased with their former player’s recent activity.

This is what they’re saying on Twitter…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Celtic currently have a vacancy for a young central midfielder like Burt, having released Regan Hendry at the end of last season. 

The Rangers goalkeeper, Aidan McAdams, was the last player to make the cross-Old-Firm switch, after leaving Celtic in 2017.
