Kyle Lafferty was released by Rangers earlier this summer.

Kyle Lafferty remains a free agent after his release from Rangers.

Lafferty chose to rejoin Rangers from Hearts last summer, but could not establish himself as a regular starter.

Now he is eyeing a move to another of his former clubs.

In an interview with Italian fan site IlovePalermoCalcio, Lafferty said he would jump at the chance to rejoin Palermo.

Lafferty said: “I would love to come back to Palermo, I remained tied to those colours, I carry them in my heart and I would still want to represent them.”

The Northern Ireland international scored 11 goals for Palermo in 2013/14, but was then sold to Norwich City, with the club having concerns over his off-pitch lifestyle.

He said: “In the summer of 2014 I went away against my will because in Palermo I was fine and it was Zamparini and Iachini who sent me away. Being called a womaniser is not the best, but I will thank Zamparini anyway for introducing me to Sicily.”

It’s unclear if this current Palermo would be able to afford Lafferty’s wages, but in principle he seems open to the idea.

He said earlier this month via The Scotsman that he would also jump at the chance to return to Hearts.

Perhaps though, after his Rangers return flopped, Lafferty’s best move might be choosing a completely new adventure and starting afresh.
