Milner’s comments about Scottish football should attract Rangers’ interest

Liverpool midfielder James Milner has refused to rule out one day signing for Rangers or Celtic in the future, reports The Herald Scotland.

What’s the word?

Steven Gerrard has been very busy in the transfer market since becoming Rangers’ new manager.

The former Liverpool captain has recruited 12 new signings and has been linked to a few more ahead of Friday’s deadline.

One man who is not on the wishlist but could be one day in the future is James Milner.

The Herald Scotland¬†quotes the Liverpool star as saying that he would “never say never” about potentially joining Rangers or Celtic later in his career.

The midfielder remains a valuable part of Jurgen Klopp’s team at Anfield, but his openness to plying his trade in Scotland is something that should interest Rangers.

Could it happen?

If it did, it would not be for a few more years given how important Milner remains on Merseyside.

After Naby Keita and Fabinho were bought by the Reds, questions were raised about whether the former England international had a long-term future at Anfield.

However, the 32-year-old has started all three of Liverpool’s Premier League matches this season and has been influential in pretty much all of them.

It does not look as though his career at Anfield is slowing down any time soon, but if he eventually decides to set up camp in Scotland, then Rangers should be in the queue of suitors.

Milner, who won two Premier League titles with Manchester City, has skill and technical ability but also strength and power that would go a long way in Scotland.

The midfielder is not afraid of a tackle, and he can also pick out a pass.
