Former Leeds and Manchester City defender Danny Mills believes that Rangers won’t care about Aaron Ramsey’s fitness issues if he helps the Scottish champions reach the Europa League final.
The Gers will face Red Star Belgrade in the last 16 after beating Borussia Dortmund over two legs, and Mills thinks that Ramsey’s involvement could help them go deeper into the tournament:
“If they can win two or three more games, they’ll be close to the final. Ramsey could come back in for those kinds of games, and he could actually make a massive difference with his experience. If he only plays four games but helps them get to a European final, no one’s going to be worried about the financial side. He’ll be worth every penny.”
Of course, despite Mills’ comments, worries over Ramsey’s fitness record will persist. The Welshman did not take part in either game against Dortmund due to injury, and he has only started one match since arriving on loan from Juventus last month. That was the Scottish Cup fifth-round win over Annan Athletic
Manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst has confirmed that the 31-year-old is available to face Motherwell at Ibrox this afternoon and it will be hoped that the former Arsenal midfielder can stay fit and play a key role for the remainder of the season.
