Rangers Reject Sensational Robbie Savage Offer To Come Out Of Retirement

Rangers boss McCoist not interested in BBC pundit Savage.

Former Welsh international Robbie Savage will not be making a dramatic return to football with beleaguered Scottish outfit Rangers.

Savage, now 37, retired from football last year after a 17-year career that saw him feature for Leicester City, Blackburn Rovers and Derby County.

The combative midfield was often the target of derision from opposition fans for his reckless tackling and ability to wind-up opponents.

But the former Welsh international, who made 39 appearances for his country between 1995 and 2005, was grudgingly respected for his unquestionable work rate and commitment and has gone on to be an admired pundit for the BBC.

And Savage last week made a sensational offer to come out of retirement to play for Scottish giants Rangers, whose financial troubles have seen them lose several players and face relegation to the Scottish Third Division.

But it seems Gers boss Ally McCoist has politely rejected Savage’s offer after the pundit took to twitter to reveal he will not be unhanging his boots any time soon.

The news suggests that McCoist is confident that his squad has what it takes to gain promotion from the fourth tier, even without the help of the ageing Welshman.
