Liam Burt could be set for a reunion with his former Rangers boss Mark Warburton at QPR this summer, the Daily Record reports.
At the age of 21, this talented young midfielder appears to be ready to finally fly his Glasgow-based nest.
Burt has bounced around from Celtic to Rangers and back again during his short career so far but, with his contract at Parkhead due to come to an end in July, the Scotland U21 international could find that his next step takes him south of the border for the first time.
The Record reports that a number of Championship clubs have expressed an interest, with Loftus Road a potential destination for a man who was handed his senior debut by QPR boss Warburton four years ago.
Burt has made just 24 first-team appearances since 2016, however. Most of those have come during loan spells at Dumbarton and Alloa Athletic.
But the chance to reunite with Warburton in West London should appeal, with the ex-Brentford and Nottingham Forest a big fan of a player who failed to force his way into Celtic’s plans since re-joining the Hoops last summer.
“He is a real talent. I like him,” Warburton told the Glasgow Times back in 2016.
“He trained with the first team squad at a good age, his attitude is good and he shows no fear. He is a young boy with a lot of work to do but he is a real talent.”
Warburton is famed for his free-flowing, attacking football and, after coaxing the best out of Ebere Eze, Ilias Chair and Bright Osayi-Samuel at QPR, Burt could finally see his potential unlocked at Loftus Road.
