Journalist Michael Bridge has claimed that he will be surprised if Rangers loanee Aaron Ramsey returns to Ibrox following his latest Instagram post.
The Welsh midfielder took to Instagram to thank the Rangers faithful for their support during his time on loan in Glasgow, which could be an indication that he will not be returning.
Amid the recent Instagram post from Ramsey, Bridge suggested to GiveMeSport that this is likely to be a signal of a farewell and that he isn’t expected to return.
Bridge said: “I don’t think he will be back. We’ve seen a player who has had niggly injuries for his whole time there. He couldn’t get a run going, so I would be surprised [if he stayed].
“He put up an Instagram post on Sunday and it read to me like it was a bit of a goodbye. He hasn’t come here and been that consistent.”
Do you think Ramsey should stay at Rangers?
TIF Thoughts on Bridge’s comments…
Ramsey featured just five times for Juventus in the first half of the season, so it could have been deemed a risk to bring him to Ibrox in the first place considering he had played such little football, and that risk did not pay off as the Welshman started just five games in the Scottish Premiership.
With the little impact that Ramsey has had this season, it is unlikely that Giovanni van Bronckhorst will be rushing to get him on board again ahead of the next campaign.
With the Gers falling short in the league and it being the first summer transfer window of Van Bronckhorst’s reign, there is likely to be plenty of changes in and out of the club, and the Dutch manager may be keen to get some fresh faces in rather than bring in players who have perhaps not had the desired effect on the club’s fortunes.
