Rangers to allow players to travel home

Post by Watp » Thu Mar 19, 2020 4:55 pm

Rangers will allow their overseas players to return home while they wait out the coronavirus pandemic.

Boss Steven Gerrard has decided his overseas contingent are best to spend the shutdown nearer their loved ones rather than isolation in Glasgow - if they wish to travel.

It means top-scorer Alfredo Morelos has been given the green light return to Colombia, while Croatian pair Borna Barisic and Nikola Katic could also return home
Romanian forward Ianis Hagi, Swedish defender Filip Helander and American Matt Polster may also decide to follow the lead of Sonia O'Neill from Rangers' women's team, who has already flown home to her native Canada.

Former Liverpool skipper Gerrard, meanwhile, is to continue splitting his time between his family home on Merseyside and Glasgow.
"Some players have decided not to return home and have remained in Glasgow.
"The club's management are in daily dialogue with each player and are monitoring the ongoing situation regarding the virus.

"The manager will continue to balance his time between Glasgow and home during this period of uncertainty."

O'Neill posted a message on Twitter thanking Ibrox chiefs for arranging her flights across the Atlantic.
