Ismael Bouzid admits he would jump at the chance to play for the Old Firm after being released by Hearts.
The Algeria ace was out of contract at Tynecastle following his switch from Turkish outfit Ankaragucu in 2009.
The 27-year-old defender is now considering his options and admits it would be good to play for the Scottish giants, with whom he has been previously linked.
He told the Daily Record: "Everyone knows Celtic and Rangers are two massive clubs.
"If you have the chance to play there it would be good for you and I'll check with my agent when I return from holiday next week and see what is happening.
"I was happy with Hearts but in terms of a contract what happens on the pitch and in the office is often different.
"Sometimes you can be happy playing with a club and not find a solution behind the scenes.
"I have been happy to play for Hearts these last two seasons. I wish them all the best and hope they reach the group stages of the Europa League."
Along with compatriot Madjid Bougherra, who has told Rangers he wants to quit Ibrox, Bouzid is pleased with the impact the pair have made in Scotland.
He added: "That's life but I hope the next Algerian who arrives in Scottish football shows the same professionalism and attitude as Madjid and me.
"That's important for the reputation of footballers from our country."
