Former Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva is unlikely to be reunited with his former teammates Steven Gerrard, who is the manager at Rangers. Immediately after taking over the Scottish club in the summer, Steven Gerrard has been actively trying to improve the squad by bringing in a number of former Liverpool stars, who he has played with during his time at the Merseyside club. Regarded as one of the finest midfielders of his generation,Gerrard did not seem to have a major struggle with regard to attract his former teammates to the Ibrox stadium. However, the stumbling block has come in the form of the transfer budget at Rangers.
Lucas Leiva played for several campaigns with Gerrard and he is currently with Lazio. The midfielder made the switch to the Italian club last summer. After experiencing reasonable success at the Italian club, it was expected that Lucas will answer to the calls of Gerrard. However, the 31-year-old may not be moving to Scottish football after Rangers do not seem to have the budget to match Lucas’ wage demands. Gerrard has already made significant changes to the Rangers squad by bringing in no less than seven players. Former Reds like John Flanagan andOvieEjaria have also moved the capital club.
