Jack Harper has suggested to The Daily Record that he is open to joining Steven Gerrard’s Glasgow Rangers or Neil Lennon’s Celtic.

The 23-year-old forward is on loan at Alcorcon from Getafe at the moment, and the former Real Madrid prospect has suggested that he could move to Rangers or Celtic in the future.


The Scottish youngster has said that there is no preference for him regarding Rangers or Celtic, but he has stated that his parents are fans of the Ibrox club.

Harper told The Daily Record: “My parents are Rangers fans, I am a little more neutral. I like to watch the derbies for the passion and intensity but I do not choose a side. I follow the league and more now Rangers have again become a strong team.

“They had problems, went down to the fourth tier and Celtic won eight leagues in a row. Now with Steven Gerrard, everything is going better. The league is becoming more powerful.

"I don’t think about it now. I have 12 years left in my career and anything can happen. In general the Scottish Premiership is beautiful, it has mythical teams.”

Future Rangers or Celtic move?

Harper is a very talented and promising young player who can and will get better in the coming years.

True, the 23-year-old failed to make a huge impact during his time at Spanish and European giants Madrid, but he has time on his hand and can add more facets to his game in the coming years.

Both Rangers and Celtic are massive clubs, and in the future, the Gers and the Bhoys could re-establish themselves as forces in Europe again.
