Fernando Torres To Rangers? Fans Are Getting Excited Over Latest Twitter Post
Fernando Torres sent a warm message of congratulations to Steven Gerrard, after the former Liverpool captain was confirmed as the new manager of Rangers.
Gerrard was paraded in-front of fans and the media at Ibrox on Friday after putting pen-to-paper on a four-year deal with the Glasgow club, and accepting his first-ever senior role in football management.
Of course, Gerrard became a household name as a world class footballer at Anfield, and some of his most successful years were playing alongside Torres in Liverpool's iconic red jersey.
Torres is still playing for his boyhood club Atletico Madrid but it seems the World Cup winner has been keeping a close eye on what's been going on in the world of Scottish football.
I wish you all the best in your new adventure. You are much more than qualified for continuing succeeding in football, now as a coach. Good luck in Glasgow Rangers Stevie #WelcomeGerrard #RangersFC pic.twitter.com/FMi9dxPt5o

Torres, 34, is out of contract in the summer, and has announced he'll be leaving Ateltico - so could he end up having a swansong at Rangers?
Rangers fans quickly swarmed the Twitter post and pleaded for the former Liverpool striker to join Gerrard at Ibrox next season.
No seriously, they bombarded his tweet with hundreds if not thousands of messages:
You're very welcome to join him if you want Fernando? I understand your contract expires at the end of the season.
Come to Rangers for a couple of seasons :red_circle::white_circle::large_blue_circle:

The replies continued for some time.
Do you think Torres would move to the Scottish Premiership when his contract expires at Atletico?
