West Brom midfielder James Morrison has spent a lot of his career dreaming of playing for Rangers one day.
With the 31-year-old’s deal at The Hawthorns due to expire in June, this summer should be the perfect time for director of football Mark Allen to strike a deal for the Scotland international, who has years of Premier League experience under his belt with the Baggies.
However Allen must act as soon as possible if he does want to sign up Morrison in the upcoming transfer window after it was reported that West Brom are due to offer him a new deal.
The Mirror claimed in their live transfer blog on Monday [02:10am] that Morrison is due to be handed fresh terms by the West Midlands side as they face relegation from England’s top-flight.
The Telegraph has previously reported that he is earning around £80,000-a-week in his current agreement and there’s a huge possibility that he may not take a significant paycut to extend his 11-year-long stay at the club.
There could be another spanner in the works for the Gers though as Football Whispers has recently reported that Celtic could seal a shock swoop for the West Brom star in the coming months..
In 2011, Morrison told the Express that he would love to move to Ibrox before the end of his career, and with him now in his 30s, it may seem like the upcoming transfer window is his final chance to be able to realise that dream before he starts to think about retirement.
“Rangers is just a team I’ve followed since I was a kid so it would be great to play there in the future,” he said seven years ago.
Morrison would be a fantastic addition at Ibrox.
His playmaking abilities go far beyond what anyone is able to do that is in the current squad and fans know that they will be getting 100 per cent out of a player who supports the club and will surely do anything to keep himself in top-flight football.
