Rangers miss out on AC Milan great Gattuso as Sion pounce

AC Milan legend Gennaro Gattuso has signed a two-year deal with Swiss Super League club FC Sion.

The 34-year old Italian midfielder, who recently departed the San Siro, was being linked with a return to Scottish club Rangers but the crisis at Ibrox prompted him to make the move elsewhere.

Gattuso's move to Sion is a massive coup for the Swiss league and the player insists that he simply wanted to be closer to home rather than make a decision based on finances.

"It's not a question of money. One of the reasons why I chose FC Sion is because that it's close to home," he told reporters.

"I've come here to FC Sion to win and to compete with FC Basel for the title. Sion's president has promised that we will have a competitive squad, and so far it seems like it."

Gattuso added: "I thought it would be the right thing to go to Scotland because that's where my career started and my wife is born there. But unfortunately it couldn't be like that."
