Cuellar: Admits he would be excited about playing for Rangers again
Former Rangers defender Carlos Cuellar has admitted he would be excited about a return to Ibrox.
New Rangers boss Ally McCoist is interested in taking the 29-year-old back to the club three years after the Spaniard left for Aston Villa.
Cuellar said he only left Ibrox after he was told it would enhance his international prospects but he is now his own man and would be excited about a return to Glasgow.
He told the Daily Record: "Obviously I have to find out what Villa want me to do but I'm very surprised to hear that Rangers want me back.
"It's exciting if there is a possibility to go back because all of those good memories come back - the city, the club, the people, how much they loved me and how much I loved them."
