Scottish duo eye up Flanagan moves


Celtic and Rangers are both being linked with offers to sign free agent Jon Flanagan.

The Scouse defender has been released by Liverpool and will be available for no fee this Summer following the ending of his Anfield career, despite having a year left on his deal.

And now The Sunday Post are claiming that the Glasgow clubs could both be considering making bids to take the full-back north of the border in a bid to revive his flagging career.

Each club is managed by someone who knows Flanagan well, with former Reds boss Brendan Rodgers in charge at Parkhead and former Anfield skipper Steven Gerrard recently appointed Rangers manager.

Flanagan had his best run of appearances and form at the club under Rodgers while Gerrard was captain, so each will feel that they have the prior relationship in place to attract him to their team.

Things took a downhill turn for the twenty-five year old when he was charged with assaulting his girlfriend before being sent on loan to Bolton Wanderers in January.

Many supporters felt his time at the club should have been ended at that point, but he was given the chance to play football at the Championship club.

He may now be given the opportunity to breathe new life into his career at one of the two Scottish giants.
