Gennaro Gattuso’s agent says he plans to hold more talks with Rangers over a possible return for the player.
The Ibrox club are still unable to sign players as they remain in administration.
However the Italian midfielder’s representative, Andrea D’Amico, hopes a solution can be found to grant his client’s wish to play for the Glasgow club.
The 34-year-old is a free agent after leaving AC Milan, and after holding talks with prospective owner Charles Green and director of football administration Andrew Dickson, D’Amico says a lack of European football hasn’t put the player off.
D’Amico told the Daily Record: “It is Rino’s wish to come back to Rangers but first I have to speak to the people at the club to find out what the situation is.
“He knows all about the Rangers financial situation. We know it is difficult but we can work to find a solution.
“Rino talked with Ally [McCoist] on the telephone. They know each other very well and like and respect each other. Now we have to work to see if something can happen.
“Not being in Europe next season would not be an issue for Rino.
“I will meet with Rangers again tomorrow for further talks.”
Charles Green says he is encouraged by Gattuso’s desire to join the club.
He told the paper: “Fans should be aware of just how big the club is when one of the greatest players publicly states he wants to finish his career at Rangers at a time when we can’t sign anyone.
“He has confirmed he wants to play for Rangers and that is something we could do if we were able to sign someone.”
