‘We Can Do Better And Need Younger’ ‘Past it’ Fans Think Rangers Should Reject Chance To Sign Ex-Villa Fullback

Aston Villa have released fullback Alan Hutton on a free transfer, according to reports in England.

The former Rangers defender helped the Villans gain promotion to the Premier League through the playoffs but manager Dean Smith has opted against retaining the veteran’s services.

Some have suggested that Hutton should return to Ibrox following his departure from Villa Park, but the majority of fans on Twitter seem to be against the move:

Hutton came through the academy at Rangers but moved to Tottenham in 2008 for a fee of £9m.

At 34 years of age, the right-back is certainly in the twilight of his career, and with both James Tavernier and Jon Flanagan able to play in that position, it seems unlikely that Gers manager Steven Gerrard would make the former Scottish international a priority signing.

Even if Tavernier were to leave the club this summer, many supporters would prefer the club seek a younger replacement.
