Former Rangers loanee Aaron Ramsey sees transfer to Turkey collapse
With his loan at Rangers over, Aaron Ramsey has seen his hopes of a reunion with Andrea Pirlo dashed after club chairman Suleyman Hurman admitted a deal was off.
Ramsey joined Rangers on loan for the season in January but saw a host of injury problems never really allow his career to take off in Glasgow.
The Wales international has now been linked with a move to Turkey with Fatih Karagumruk alongside new manager Pirlo, the deal is now off according to the main man at the club.
“We practically reached the stage of an agreement with Ramsey but then we gave up,” he said, as quoted by The Scottish Sun [June 25].
Ramsey will now return to parent club Juventus ahead of the new season, although the Italian giants are reportedly keen to see him leave and could look to terminate his contract a year early.
Ramsey came with so much hope and expectation at Ibrox, but it just never worked out for one reason or another and it’s the right decision to move on from the 31-year-old.
Despite scoring against Celtic in the Scottish Premiership, he couldn’t stop them winning the league and then he missed the vital penalty in the shootout against Frankfurt in the Europa League final.
His time here will be more remembered for that miss and the fact he couldn’t get on the pitch often enough more than anything else.
He showed that he’s got some qualities still to play at a high level, and with the World Cup coming up for Wales he will want to be at his absolute best.
Whoever gets him will have a fine player on their hands, but thankfully that won’t be Rangers next season and it seems everyone is on the same wavelength when it comes to that scenario.
