Jack Butland Expresses Desire to Depart Rangers for English Premier League Return

Jack Butland has expressed his intention to depart Rangers this summer, aiming for a return to the English Premier League after just one season at Ibrox, reports DHNet

The Belgian news outlet, in their update on April 11th, highlighted Butland’s desire to head back south of the border. They also noted Rangers’ interest in securing Standard Liege goalkeeper Arnaud Bodart as a potential replacement, with a suggested transfer fee of £3.4 million, as reported by SudInfo.

“One of the conditions required before the Scottish club possibly positions itself, would be for the current holder, Jack Butland, to leave,” DHNet reported.

Butland’s aspirations were elucidated further, stating, “His wish, after his full season with Rangers, would be to return to the Premier League and establish himself there.” The goalkeeper, widely regarded as the best in the Scottish Premier League, has been deemed the standout transfer of the past 12 months in Scotland.

However, amidst Butland’s desire for higher-level competition and his omission from the England national team, Rangers face the challenge of convincing the 31-year-old to prolong his stay at Ibrox if they aim to consistently challenge Celtic for the league title.
