A report from Italy claims that Rangers are not interested in turning Aaron Ramsey’s loan deal into a permanent move and the player will return to Italy.
Since signing for Rangers on loan in January, Aaron Ramsey has struggled.
That is not, perhaps, surprising.
Having played just 98 Serie A minutes with Juventus before departing for Scotland, he was always going to need time to get up to speed.
Then you factor in his career-long injury and fitness problems and you start to see why he has yet to play the full 90 for Rangers.
In total, Ramsey has played 491 minutes for his loan club out of an available 1,620, scoring two goals and assisting one.
Now, the midfielder is set for another period on the sidelines after picking up an injury against Celtic.
Giovanni van Bronkhorst is hopeful that Ramsey won’t be out for as long as first feared, but he is expected to miss Ranger’s Europa League first leg against RB Leipzig as well as the league games against Motherwell and Celtic.
They hope to have Ramsey back for the second leg against RB Leipzig.
Tuttojuve report that Rangers are ‘not satisfied’ with his performances so far, nor with the fact that a player, who has been beset by injuries since the day he met Ryan Shawcross, should have injury problems.
Ramsey will still have a year left on his deal with Juventus at the end of his loan with Rangers but it seems highly unlikely they will want to keep him around for the final 12 months, especially as they’ve been trying to get rid of him since a few months after they picked him up for free from Arsenal.
The Welshman, now 31, is valued at around £4.5m.
