Rangers table offer to sign Charleroi midfielder Adem Zorgane as bizarre Celtic mix-up clarified
Rangers have tabled an offer to sign Charleroi’s Algerian midfielder Adem Zorgane, according to French journalist Nabil Djellit.
Writing via his personal Twitter account on Wednesday (13 July), the L’Equipe and France Football journalist claimed that Toulouse and Celtic had make approaches for the 22-year-old central midfielder.
However, Djellit clarified in another tweet that he meant Rangers had made the offer for Zorgane, which was deemed “insufficient” by Belgian outfit Charleroi and presumably rejected.
Djellit said: “Erratum. Glasgow Rangers not Celtic.”
Think before you tweet
Djellti was rather quick to fix his error.
But how’s he managed that?
Rangers and Celtic are both based in Glasgow and play in the Scottish Premiership.
Away from that, the two clubs couldn’t be more different.
Aside from journalistic errors, Zorgane is a player who’s piqued our interest.
Last season, he played 36 times in all competitions for Charleroi, scoring three goals and supplying six assists as they finished sixth in the Belgian top-flight
The eight-times Algeria international, who made his debut for his country last season too, played in defensive, central and attacking midfield roles. However, he mainly played in the middle for Charleroi.
Football Talent Scout Jacek Kulig took a look at Zorgane last season too, saying in March that he was “doing really good during his first season in Europe” with impressive passing and tackling numbers.
Let’s see how this one develops because Rangers could do with some youthful exuberance in the middle of the park and Zorgane does tick some boxes for Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
