Oguchi Onyewu’s road back to the field has been a long one, but the former U.S. Men’s National Team defender is back in training with a historic club for the time being.
Onyewu is currently training with Scottish club Rangers throughout the club’s 10-day summer training camp in South Carolina, which includes a match against the USL’s Charleston Battery on July 6. It remains unclear if the Scottish club has any interest in permanently signing the veteran defender.
The 34-year-old centerback most recently featured for Charleton Athletic, but was released by the English club following the conclusion of the 2014-15 season after just three appearances, the last of which came in February 2015. A trial with New York City FC soon followed, but did not receive a contract due to achilles injury.
Onyewu has played for seven clubs since moving to AC Milan in 2009, but has struggled to find consistent gametime at any of them. As a member of the USMNT, Onyewu made 69 appearances from 2004-14 while scoring six international goals.
What do you think of the Onyewu news? Expect him to earn a spot with Rangers? What leagues or teams would make sense for the centerback?
