Liverpool midfielder James Milner has told the Scottish Herald that he would “never say never” on a move to either Celtic or Rangers, with his contract set to expire this summer.
The 33-year-old is in the final few months of his current Liverpool contract, which is worth a huge £140,000 a week (Spotrac). It looks unlikely that the versatile star will be offered a new deal to remain at Anfield beyond the summer.
Milner has enjoyed an excellent career after breaking through at Leeds. He has since played for Manchester City, Newcastle United and Aston Villa before joining Liverpool.
He has 514 Premier League appearances, 61 England caps, two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and one League Cup. Asked if he would consider a move to Celtic or Rangers, Milner said “never say never”.
“I would never say never. You never know what is going to happen,” Milner said.
Milner’s athleticism and unwavering stamina proves age can be just a number in modern football. He continues to churn out consistent performances from the middle of the park, but offering cover on either side of the defence.
For either Celtic or Rangers, Milner would be a somewhat unbelievable signing. He would get to reunite with former Liverpool and England teammate Steven Gerrard at Rangers.
Liverpool teammates Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson are big fans of Celtic and they would surely rather see him move to Parkhead. If he joins either side, it would be an enormous coup for the Scottish Premiership.
