Folkloric Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is understood to be mulling over a move to Celtic in a last ditch attempt to win a league title before calling time upon his career.
In 17 years at Anfield the 34-year-old has finished second in the Premier League three times, with no silver medal campaign closer than the one just gone, in which Manchester City pipped him to the trophy by just two points.
Attempts to go one better this term are not going according to plan following the departure of Luis Suarez, who scored or assisted 43 of Liverpool’s 101 goals.
Meanwhile Gerrard has been forced to relive the calamitous error he made against Chelsea to gift the Citizens glory by the terrace wags of every team he has faced since.
Within the game it has long been common knowledge that players struggling to get a league winner’s medal in England can cross the border into Scotland, where titles are cheap and plentiful if you join the right outfit.
The likes of James Beattie, John Hartson, El Hadji Diouf, Paul Telfer, Lee Naylor and Steve Guppy have all exploited the well-known loophole in the past.
And now sources close to the former England skipper and freelance nightclub DJ reviewer have intimated that he is pondering binning his one-club man status in a bid to fill the only remaining hole in his club football CV.
Rangers currently trail Hearts by seven points in the Scottish Championship and are by no means assured safe passage back to the Scottish Premiership next term.
As a result an end of season move to Parkhead would likely provide Gerrard with a title-winning opportunity even he couldn’t slip over and mess up in 2015/16.
