Rangers midfielder Aaron Ramsey might have played his last game for the club, according to Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge.

The Wales international made the loan switch to Ibrox from Juventus in January, but injuries have overshadowed his four months in Scotland.

What’s the latest news involving Ramsey?

When Ramsey made the deadline day move from the Old Lady, the Rangers faithful could hardly contain their excitement, highlighted by hundreds of fans greeting the 30-year-old upon his arrival.

He would make his Scottish Premiership debut days later, but non-stop injuries prevented him from getting a proper run in the side.

Ramsey did score twice, taking his career tally to 76, including the opener in the Old Firm derby last month, but the midfielder endured a miserable night in the Europa League final when he missed the crucial spot kick in the penalty shoot-out to hand Frankfurt the trophy.

He did get his hand on silverware just four days later when Rangers beat Hearts 2-0 in the Scottish Cup final, but he didn’t manage to get on the pitch.

But Ramsey took to Instagram following the cup final and appeared to hint that he won’t be returning next season.

What did Bridge say about Ramsey?

He told GIVEMESPORT: “I don’t think he will be back. We’ve seen a player who has had niggly injuries for his whole time there. He couldn’t get a run going, so I would be surprised [if he stayed].

“He put up an Instagram post on Sunday and it read to me like it was a bit of a goodbye. He hasn’t come here and been that consistent.”

What went wrong for Ramsey?

Much like the last couple of years, in which he has missed more than 30 games in three seasons for Juventus, staying fit proved Ramsey’s biggest problem during his time north of the border.

Overall, he missed six games, while he was left on the bench seven times, which restricted him to just 13 appearances and 632 minutes in blue.

When Ramsey was given game-time, he showed what he’s capable of with two goals and two assists; a fine strike against Celtic his standout moment, but his flashes of brilliance were few and far between, which is why it appears unlikely that Ramsey will return to Ibrox next season.
