On-loan Rangers midfielder Aaron Ramsey has played down any chance of a permanent move and instead revealed that his future will be decided once the season is completely over. The Welsh international signed for the Gers on loan, from Juventus, in January and has made 12 appearances for the club.
After falling out of favour after Massimiliano Allegri arrived at Juventus, Aaron Ramsey made only five appearances for the club in the first half of the 2021/22 season. However, that saw the Welshman seek a loan move away in January with Newcastle United and Aston Villa linked as potential destinations. But in the end, Rangers won the race for the 31-year-old and he has since made a decent impact, with 12 appearances as injuries continue to plague him.
Yet even then, rumours and reports have indicated that Ramsey is considering extending his time at Ibrox although nothing has materialized as of yet. But when asked about it, Ramsey played down any permanent move and instead admitted that his future will be decided at the end of the season. The 31-year-old does have one year left on his contract in Turin but added that his focus is on trying to win the Scottish Cup and Europa League with the Gers.
“That’s to be decided at the end of the season, there is no update on that yet. I’m just looking forward to the final few weeks here and hopefully making it a very memorable experience for me,” Ramsey said, reported Goal.
“I’m sure there will be conversations to be had after the season is finished but right now I’m just focused on trying to win these two competitions with Rangers.”
The Welshman did make a Europa League final with Arsenal but was injured during the Gunners’ 4-1 loss in 2019 final. However, this time around with Rangers set to face Eintracht Frankfurt in the final, later this week, it has Ramsey rather excited and he admitted that the squad are just as excited. Not only that, he pushed the team to lift the trophy because he believes “there is a lot of quality in this squad”.
“There’s a lot of excitement around the club. We’ve put ourselves in an unbelievable position so we’ve produced some memorable results and performances throughout the campaign and now it’s one step further. We’re there so we have a chance to create history.
“It’s right up there. To play in a final of a European competition doesn’t come around very often. Unfortunately, I missed the Arsenal one a few years back but hopefully, I can make up for it in this one. We got to the final that year and lost to Chelsea but for me to miss it through injury was tough hopefully, I get that opportunity and can make up for it.
“There’s a lot of quality in this squad so for us to have done what we’ve done, I’m not surprised. Now it’s just about putting one big effort to try and come away with the trophy,” he added.
