CHARLIE Adam admits that he would love to return to Rangers as he issued a come and get me plea to clubs in Scotland.

The midfielder has fallen out of favour at Stoke City, making just three league appearances for the English Championship club this season.

The 33-year-old has been told he is free to find a new club during the January transfer window, but so far, he has had no contact from anyone despite the likes of Hearts, Dundee and St Mirren being credited with an interest.

And he hopes that clubs in Scotland aren’t being put off by any perception over his wage demands, as he insisted that his prime motivation is getting back to playing football regularly.

“It’s not about the money,” Adam said. “It’s about coming and playing and enjoying it.

“Stoke won’t be the issue. They understand where I am, and I know where they are at.

“Everybody is going to presume that Rangers is the one for me, but I’ve had no contact. Everybody knows that if it came around it would interest me because it’s a big club, I’ve been there before, I understand what it is to play for a club of that size.

“I started there, and a lot of people are still there from when I was there. But that’s as far as it goes, we’ll see what happens in the coming weeks.

“Would it interest me? Absolutely, and that’s as far as I would say.”

Adam played alongside current Rangers manager Steven Gerrard when the pair were at Liverpool, but he isn’t sure whether that could be a factor that could work in his favour in terms of a potential move back to Ibrox.

“I don’t know because I’ve not had any contact,” he said. “I don’t know what they’re thinking or where they’re at.

“I know he’s on holiday at the moment enjoying the winter break but whatever happens, do I see Rangers being an option? I don’t know. I don’t know what’s going to happen.

“If anything comes up then we’ll have to sit down as a family and make a decision on where I go.

“It’s about going to a club where you are going to have an opportunity to play, express yourself and show people you are still a good player.

“I’ve never doubted that I’m a good player. The only thing for me is I’ve not played.

“When I get playing regularly I’m confident that I can get back to playing the way I can.

“I’m open to whatever is there. At the moment there has been no contact through my agent or whoever. There’s been nothing at all.

“There’s obviously been speculation about coming back to Scotland.

“It would interest me. But at the moment there’s no interest from any clubs. That’s as far as it’s gone.

“We’ll see where it goes in the new few weeks."
