Fantastic player in his prime....I haven't seen much of Milan in the last year so no idea if his legs have gone + he's an old codger at 34 (35 in January)....though I'd expect him to have great positional sense in defensive midfield.
He's desperate for a move back to Rangers and is looking at only 12k a week as he has enough money since playing for Milan for the last 13 years: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/foo...t-Rangers.html
Here's his wiki; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gennaro_gattuso
He's always been a great defensive midfielder -- would be competing I imagine with Fellaini, Gibson for a starting berth or would possibly be a good option as backup -- in comparison to Neville perhaps ?
I was also thinking he may be a good option on the coaching side -- much has been made of Rodwell lacking the hard tackling side to his game + Barkley needing to improve defensively and of course I'm sure Gibson and Fellaini could learn a thing or two from him....
For 12k a week he sounds like a great option as a player/coach if his wish to move back to his wifes home city doesnt go through.....
I'm NEVER one to advocate signing old players -- ONLY youngsters -- but for 12k a week surely the worst case is that our other midfielders and young players can learn from him on both the playing and mental sides ?
