Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam has confirmed that he would be open to a potential move back to former club Rangers should it become an option as he discusses his future at the Britannia Stadium.
Following our Premier League relegation, club officials are set to continue to meet a number of players as new manager Gary Rowett assesses his options and keeps one eye on potential financial fall out should Stoke not achieve their aim of making it back to the top-flight at the first time of asking in 2018/19.
Moonlighting on media duties last week as Rangers opened up their Europa League adventure for the season, pre-game talk turned to his future and BT Sport asked the obvious question in the circumstances.
"What's the chances of you [@Charlie26Adam] coming back to Rangers?"
"There's always a chance, it's Rangers! But you can never rule it out…"https://t.co/wDYhXhp2KN

Stoke talk approximately 8 minutes into the video.
The 32-year-old spent a number of years at Rangers as he came through their youth Academy, and having turned professional at Ibrox he went on to make 85 appearances in total for them, with a return of 18 goals. In 2009 he moved onto Blackpool and he did spend 12 months at Liverpool alongside Steven Gerrard, so that is another angle to this speculation.
All depends on what Stoke plan to do though as he remains under contract for now.
Taking to social media to respond to the possibility of a departure, Stoke fans seem largely happy to see him move on as we look to youth, the future and the changing of the old guard if the below is anything to go by.
They can have him for free
