Steven Gerrard wanted Ravel Morrison at Rangers

Ravel Morrison has recently signed for Swedish club Ostersunds FK, as reported by Sky Sports.

However, in an interview with The Times, the 26-year-old has revealed that Rangers manager Steven Gerrard wanted to bring him to Ibrox Stadium in the recent January transfer window.

What’s the story?

Morrison has claimed that Gerrard was open to having a conversation about bringing him to Glasgow, but ultimately the idea failed to progress.

Speaking to The Times, Morrison said of Gerrard, “he’s a legend in football and he was willing to sit down and have a really good conversation. Certain old-school managers wouldn’t have done that.”

Morrison will now look to get his career back on track in Sweden. However, the notion of him joining the Gers is certainly an intriguing one. 

After a place to settle

Morrison’s career trajectory has not followed the path many predicted for him in his youth. The Manchester-born midfielder began his career at Old Trafford, where he progressed through the Manchester United academy in style. 

In 2014, iconic United defender Rio Ferdinand revealed that Sir Alex Ferguson thought that Morrison as a 14-year-old was “the best player he had seen at that age.”

However, he ultimately failed to make the grade at United and has been something of a nomad ever since, having had spells with West Ham United, QPR, Italian side Lazio and Mexican outfit Atlas, amongst others.

Morrison’s talent has never been in doubt, but he has never been able to settle and maintain his form in any one place for long. At this stage in his career, time is running out for him to make good on his potential. Perhaps, some time in Scotland working under Gerrard would’ve been ideal for the former boy wonder.
