Dorin Goian is targeting an Ibrox departure after the Rangers newco was voted into the third division of Scottish football.

The defender's revelation marks a big U-turn after he vowed to remain at the financially-stricken club on Friday.

The Romanian, who joined Rangers from Palermo last summer, had pledged to stay if the club were allowed into the First Division.

But he quickly announced his intention to quit after 25 Scottish Football League clubs voted to admit Charles Green's Rangers in the bottom tier.

No question

Goian told Romanian media: "I am not playing at the fourth level - there's no question of that.

"I am on my way back and I will meet the president of the club and I will learn more.

"My agent has already spoken with other teams but nothing has been agreed yet.

"I would have stayed if it was the First Division - but not this."
