McCoist: We want Gattuso

Rangers manager Ally McCoist has confirmed that the Old Firm outfit are keen to try and re-sign Gennaro Gattuso.

The Italian midfielder is available to the Scottish side after confirming that he would be leaving Milan this summer at the expiry of his contract.

Having spent a season in Glasgow 15 years ago, the player is known to have an affinity with the club, whilst reports today suggested that his agent was in Scotland for talks over a possible reunion.

Rangers boss McCoist, who played alongside Gattuso for the Scottish Premier League outfit during the 1997-98 season, has now confirmed that if possible, they will try to bring him back.

“We know Gattuso, we know what his value is and of his willingness to return to Rangers,” McCoist told

“Our situation is unfortunately complicated, we have problems. In any case, we hope to fix everything and we are in talks for his return to Glasgow.”

Rangers are currently in administration, but recently successfully appealed against a 12-month transfer embargo being placed on them.
