Ex-Leicester, Derby midfielder Savage: I'll play for Rangers for free

Robbie Savage has revealed he will come out of retirement and play for Rangers for free if manager Ally McCoist wants him.

The Glasgow club have been demoted to Scotland's Third Division after they fell into liquidation and are struggling for players after a mass exodus this summer.

One man who is keen to help out is 37-year old Welshman Savage who retired from the game whilst with Derby County in May 2011 and he says he will do it for nothing.

"It would be a privilege to play for a great club like Rangers," he said.

"I might be mad thinking I can, but if they are desperate for players, I'll go up there and play for nothing."

He added on Twitter: "If Rangers are struggling for players I'd come out of retirement and play for nothing.

"I could do a job in Division Three.

"I only retired a year ago - I'm as fit now and would play for free. Sometimes you need to give back.

"It's a great club and I'm still only 37.

"Holding midfielder still a piece of p***! Is it worth me ringing Ally?"

Savage, who played 39 times for Wales, kicked off his career with Manchester United but failed to make a senior appearance there before heading to Crewe Alexandra in 1994. Since then he has played for Leicester City, Birmingham City, Blackburn Rovers, Brighton & Hove Albion (on loan) and Derby.
