Aaron Ramsey and Rangers’ locker room ‘thrill’ as Brian Laudrup puts all-star signing on ‘next bunch’


Delighted Rangers icon Brian Laudrup is convinced signing Aaron Ramsey is an inspired move that will shake up the locker room.

The 31-year-old has joined the Scottish Premiership champions on a season-ending loan from Juventus and boasts an enviable resume.

Laudrup knows all about Ibrox stars and shared a dressing room with Paul Gascoigne during a trophy-laden period together in the ’90s.

And he backs Ramsey to write his own story in Glasgow and acknowledges that the former Arsenal star brings a different level of quality.

Speaking in his Daily Mail column, he said: “Can you imagine the reaction in the Rangers dressing room when the players found out Aaron Ramsey was heading to the club?

“The place would have been filled with genuine excitement. Suddenly the disappointment of Saturday’s two missed points might have subsided a bit. It’s the kind of news that adds an extra boost to preparations for the crucial Old Firm game of tomorrow night.

“This is a huge blow to the Rangers. I don’t think you can say otherwise. The only question clearly surrounds the problems Ramsey has had with injuries. He hasn’t played that much all season and seems to have struggled.” little in Italy recently.

“But we are talking about a player who did extremely well at Arsenal. One who played in two European Championships and scored a number of crucial goals.

“How high do I rate it? I would call it international class. World class is a heavy term. I like to leave it to Messi, Ronaldo and Mbappe.”

“But Ramsey is in the next international bracket. He is capable of winning a match on a big stage, 100 per cent.”

“Obviously this deal only comes about because Juventus are willing to cut ties. But if Rangers can keep Ramsey fit they will get something they simply don’t have at the club. We’re talking about a midfielder with a real goal threat, who has played at the highest level and brings a fantastic experience.

“At his best, Ramsey is a very powerful player, combining high-level work-rate and technique. The timing of his runs into the box, which creates many of his goals, is second to none.

“If Rangers can get some of these qualities from him, it will be a real crowd pleaser at Ibrox.”

Laudrup is convinced that Ramsey’s impact will not be limited to the pitch and believes the newcomer will inspire some of Ibrox’s best players.

And it will also allow the versatile midfielder to rediscover his best form after a difficult time in Italy in recent months.


He added: “Guys like Joe Aribo and Ryan Kent will have seen Ramsey do wonders for Arsenal when they were kids.

“He will get the utmost respect from his colleagues. Everyone will listen to what he has to say. It will be a bit similar to what happened in Steven Gerrard’s reign when he brought in the likes of Allan McGregor, Steven Davis and Jermain Defoe.”

“Ramsey is younger than them, but he’s been at the highest level of football for a long time. He’s seen most of the things the game can throw at someone.”

“If he can now use Rangers as a springboard to get back to close to his best, then the club will have a tremendous asset on their hands.”
