Having played brilliantly for Blackpool, Adam won a big-money move to Liverpool in 2011, where he played alongside current Gers boss Steven Gerrard, but soon moved on to his current team, Stoke City.
Adam has fallen out of favour at the Britannia Stadium, with manager Gary Rowett banishing the 32-year-old to his youth team, and the Daily Record is reporting that he’s keen to end his stay in English football by winning a loan deal at Ibrox.
However, it seems news of Adam making a comeback in the iconic light blue kit hasn’t exactly gone down too well with fans on social media:
Charlie Adam wasnt good enough the first time round, if he cant get a game for a shockingly bad Stoke side, then he should be nowhere near us. Its a NO from me.

Charlie Adam angling for a loan move back to rangers in Jan.
It's a no from me.
Why do we always go back to ex players?

Instead of Charlie Adam. What about Billy Gilmour wouldn't mind seeing him play at Ibrox for 6 months??

I’ve actually just seen a rangers fan tweet they want Charlie Adam in January 😂 surely that’s no the expectation of player every fans after he’s a fat bastard

I’d rather Jay Beatty in the middle of our midfield than Charlie Adam

When you wanted Steve Davis but you actually get Charlie Adam is like asking Santa for a PlayStation & him bringing you a board game https://t.co/VGEeGDEp7Z

I hope I never have to meet any Rangers fan that wants Charlie Adam back at the club

Is Charlie Adam really the answer to our problems? I can't see it myself. https://t.co/RrCelFCvlV

Charlie Adam – No

Do you think Adam still has plenty to offer the current Rangers squad?
And would he be the kind of player Gerrard would be interested in?
