Marco Negri names the three Rangers players who could play in Serie A

Former Rangers star Marco Negri has expressed his surprise at the lack of attention from Italian clubs in some Ibrox stars.

The Light Blues are having a dream season in 2020/21, sitting pretty at the top of the Premiership 13 points clear of Celtic and in the Europa League Round of 32.

Steven Gerrard side have got the blend just right this term; scoring plenty of goals and being extremely stubborn at the back.

There have been plenty of impressive individual campaigns so far, but Negri has identified three players in particular who would suit playing in Serie A.

 

He told an Italian radio station (quoted by the Daily Record): “Rangers now have players who would be really good and make an impact in Serie A.

“Kemar Roofe (£4.5 million summer signing from Anderlecht, Derniere Heure) is an excellent striker, Ryan Kent is an exciting, technical winger.

“And their full back James Tavernier can’t stop scoring goals.”

In Negri’s eyes, Scottish football is looked down upon by Italian football fans, who believe the competition to be about ‘high balls and lots of elbows’.

TBR’s View – Rangers won’t thank Negri for his comments

The three players mentioned may well have the capacity to play in a league like Serie A.

But Rangers will be absolutely opposed to losing any one of them any time soon, with all three making significant contributions to their brilliant start to 2020/21.

They’ll hope Negri’s comments won’t now lead to any interest from the Italian top-flight.
