Bougherra wants PL return

Defender wants PL return, and believes Algeria can beat England in World Cup

Bougherra: Eyeing Gers exit

Rangers centre-back Madjid Bougherra has revealed he wants to leave Ibrox next summer - and has issued a 'come and get me' plea to the top clubs in England.

While the 27-year-old says he is happy with Walter Smith's side at present, he would like to move on in the summer.

And, having experienced a taste of the English top flight with Charlton in the 2006/07 campaign, he would like to return now he is in his prime.

The Algerian international told the Sunday Mirror: "I have plenty of options from among the English, Spanish and French leagues, but my wish is to return to England and play for a good Premier League club.


"I have already had a taste of the Premier League with Charlton and my dream is to make a return now I am at the top of my game.

"I am happy at Rangers and don't want to leave them during the January transfer window.

"Besides, it would be tricky to change clubs just while the African Nations Cup is under way.

"I have no doubt that the best time for me to leave will be next summer, just after the World Cup finals."
