Gattuso could make Rangers switch insists Green

Prospective Rangers owner Charlie Green has confirmed that the return of midfielder Gennaro Gattuso is a possibility according BBC Sport.

Rangers are currently under a year long transfer embargo though the SFA are reconsidering the ban due to the Scottish club having taken court action against the association. With Charlie Green currently heading a consortium to buy the stricken club, his first target could be 34-year-old Gennaro Gattuso who is looking for a new club after leaving AC Milan last month.

In an interview with the club’s website, Green confirmed he had held talks with Gattuso’s representatives saying: “Gattuso himself came out publicly and said he would love to join Rangers and, after the illustrious career he has had in Milan, that’s great… His agent came over and we explained the difficulties surrounding the club.”

The 34-year-old still holds a cult status at Rangers after his season appearance for the club in 1997, and during AC Milan’s winter break in 2007 he trained with the club to regain match fitness. The fact that current manager Ally McCoist played alongside him is also an attractive prospect for Gattuso.

Charlie Green also confirmed that he has agreed a suitable budget for Ally McCoist despite the embargo that hangs over the club saying: “From my point of view as CEO, we’ve sat with Ally and arranged a budget with him and should we be allowed to sign players, he will be able to do so.”
