New Stoke manager Gary Rowett is set to oversee a massive clearout of the Potters squad after their relegation from the Premier League – and it could lead to an stunning Ibrox return for midfielder Charlie Adam.

Adam played with incoming Rangers manager Steven Gerrard at Liverpool after originally making the breakthrough and Gerrard’s arrival at Ibrox could see the veteran return as part of Gerrard’s Gers’ rebuild.

According to The Daily Mirror, Adam is one of a host of players who are finished at the Bet365 Stadium and the Gers could do far worse than bringing Adam back to Ibrox.

At 32, Adam is far from finished and could definitely do a job for the Gers as well as bringing experience of winning trophies as Gerrard looks to end Celtic’s recent dominance of the Scottish game.

With Gerrard knowing the player well – and Adam being no stranger to Rangers – it is a deal that would suit both parties and give the Gers a proven, quality signing.

It’s unlikely Adam would cost a massive amount either with Stoke keen to clear out much of the squad who suffered relegation and the Gers would likely find themselves in pole position to sign him given his history with the Light Blues.
