Gerrard’s Former Team Mate Admits He Is Open To Rangers Switch: Worth Considering In January?

Charlie Adam who spent one year at Liverpool is open to a switchback at the Ibrox if the opportunity presents itself. The midfielder currently plies his trade for Stoke City but has failed to make an impact under the new manager Gary Rowett. Adam was with Rangers from 2003 to 2009 before he moved to England. An impressive spell with Blackpool gave him a chance to play at one of the biggest clubs in the world in Liverpool which was one of the highs of his career. However, he would have wanted to stay there for a bit longer than one season.

Adam conducted a Q and A over social media with the fans recently and said,”I would if the opportunity ever came up (Moving back to Rangers).” He also later added that Gerrard was one of the players he loved watching and considered him to be a footballing inspiration.

The midfielder made just 11 appearances in the Premier League last season when the Potters got relegated to the Championship. Even in the Championship, the Scottish midfielder is finding it tough to break into the team as the new manager has just used him only in the Carabao Cup ties.

Adam was even linked with a move to Rangers in the summer transfer window, but nothing materialised then. We feel that the 32-year-old is past his prime and the midfielder would not fit well into the current setup. Gerrard is trying to change the identity of this side and we have seen how he wants his players to be hardworking and leave everything on the pitch during a game.

Yes, Adam would add experience and creativity in midfield but off the ball, he doesn’t seem like a player who would run around relentlessly for the full 90 minutes. Gerrard has instilled the quality of defending as a team and playing Adam in midfield might mean defending with just ten men.

The Scotsman is also prone to going into rash challenges now and then and when he doesn’t get the ball often, he gets frustrated. When on a song, he can be a delightful player to watch as he has a mean left foot and his pass picking abilities are second to none. But often the Potters played with a lot less possession, and therefore Adam was considered as a liability to the team. The Gers have decent options in midfield and having already signed 15 players; we don’t feel Gerrard would be interested in making a move for the former Teddy Bears midfielder.
