No doubt it will be be a panic buy to some— GraemeJ (@graemej8771) September 8, 2019
Sign him up— craig killin (@ckger147) September 8, 2019
I think he’d be decent if fit.— Andrew Pearson (@theboychunder) September 8, 2019
These really are two separate questions. Do we need another midfielder? No. Would I be happy if we signed him? Yes— Andrew Pearson (@theboychunder) September 8, 2019
Couldn’t say to anyone who played regularly for Juventus over a long period of time— Evan (@EvanC1) September 8, 2019
Would be a good signing, but can't see it happening tbh— CraigM0808 (@craig_m0808) September 8, 2019
No, He would be another player that would need a fair bit of game time to bing him up to match fitness.— Wallis81WATP (@Wallis819) September 8, 2019
Got enough midfield players what we need is an out and out left back, tab is alright but we need a more defensive LB imo— brian rollo (@brianrollo3) September 8, 2019
Good experience tae have in the team would take him any day especially after seeing some old firm performances— Scott Rowand (@ScottRowand) September 8, 2019
In his prime he'd walk into our team no problem. He's getting older and most likely wants to retire in Italy. Still brilliant— Steven (@Gxllaxy16) September 7, 2019
Good signing for Rangers?
Marchisio was one of the best midfielders in the world in his prime, but the Italy international is 33 years of age and is past his best.
The midfielder has not played much football in recent times, and he will take a few games to regain full match fitness.
However, Marchisio is a serial winner, and he would bring a wealth of experience in European football and class in the middle of the park for Rangers.
