Rangers’ move for Wayne Rooney could “a done deal”, say former Celtic player

Former Celtic skipper Micky Gray has urged Rangers new boss Steven Gerrard to make a surprise move for Wayne Rooney should the Everton striker choose to leave the Goodison Park this summer.

Reports are suggesting that Rooney could face the exit door at Everton at the end of the season after finding regular first-team football hard to come by under Toffees boss Sam Allardyce.

Speaking to talkSPORT, former Celtic player Gray said that signing the former Manchester United to Rangers would send out a powerful message to the whole of Scottish football whilst making the Old Firm Derby a more competitive and tough encounter.

He said:

“If Wayne’s time is up at Everton, there’s no reason why Rangers shouldn’t put their name forward

“Steven is an attraction. He wants to get it right at Rangers and what a massive signing that would be.

“Wayne Rooney coming to Rangers – that would send out a message to the whole of the Scottish league.”

Gerrard, who will take over the reins of the club in June as the new manager, has been tipped to make his former Liverpool teammate Martin Skrtel or current Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke who’s deemed surplus to requirement his first Rangers signing of the summer.
