It is not possible to use a global IP address (eg the spoofed client IP) 
to connect to any machines lo (localhost) interface.

So Squid is not able to perform TPROXY spoofing to fetch the page your 
SG is *re-writing* (not redirecting) the URL to. If you actually are 
redirecting then the client cannot connect to the web server running in 
*its* localhost interface.

PS. please upgrade, no up to date OS releases I'm aware of still ship
