Mphela: Rangers link
South Africa striker Katlego Mphela admits that he is flattered with the interest shown by SPL champions Rangers.
The 25-year-old top-scored in the Premier Soccer League last season and impressed during the World Cup finals, scoring in the victory against France.
Mphela is keen to compete in a stronger league and a potential move to Glasgow has clearly excited the former Strasbourg man.
"It's my dream to go back to Europe, especially when a team like Rangers say they are interested in me. They are one of the biggest teams in Europe," Mphela told The Cape Times.
"They are the Manchester United of Scotland and they play in the Champions League.
"If they put in an offer, I am ready to leave, especially if their coach says he wants me."
Although Mphela seems determined to move overseas, he remains committed to the Mamelodi Sundowns cause.
"My goal is to go abroad, but if I stay, I still want to be the top goal-scorer and double the number of goals," he added.
"It is possible, because when I look at the chances we created last season, I should have scored 30 goals."
Mphela is likely to lead the line in Bafana Bafana's friendly with Ghana at Soccer City on Wednesday.
