Liverpool fans upset with Gerrard as Flanagan heads to Rangers

Jon Flanagan came through the ranks at Liverpool and earned himself a plenty of backing from the fans.

The full-back was put through the ringer with injury problems and once he regained fitness, he struggled to find a way into Jurgen Klopp’s team.

Flanagan’s fall from grace was in January, though, when he was sentenced to a 12-month community order¬†after pleading guilty to assaulting his girlfriend in December last year.

At the end of the season, Liverpool confirmed that the 25-year-old has been released from his contract.

Now, it has been widely reported that Flanagan will be given another chance, but this time at Rangers.

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard became the new manager of Rangers in April, and according to Wednesday’s report in the Evening Times, Flanagan will join the Scottish outfit on a free transfer.

The Liverpool connection is clear to see, but some fans of the Merseyside outfit are disappointed that Gerrard has decided to sign the full-back following his assault conviction.
