Goian - I'll be back

Defender moved to Italy on loan to salvage his World Cup dream

Dorin Goian: Would like to return to Ibrox and hopes club will be back in SPL

Dorin Goian has vowed to return to Rangers once his loan spell in Italy is over and hopes the club will be back in the SPL.

The Romania defender became the latest first-team regular to head for the Ibrox exit door last week when he sealed a move to Italian Serie B side Spezia.

He insists he only quit the Third Division side to salvage his World Cup dream as Romania push to qualify for the 2014 tournament in Brazil.

Goian told the Daily Record: "In 10 months I'll be back to Glasgow. I am in Italy for one year for a loan and that's it.

Something change

"When it's over I'll have my contract with Rangers again and I hope something is going to change and I'll get the chance to play in the SPL again with Rangers."

"However, things with the national team then became clear and made up my mind for me. The national team and my country is very important, it means everything to me and it is the biggest thing a player can have.

"This is a World Cup year and I want to have the opportunity to be involved with the squad as we try to make it to the finals in 2014 in Brazil."
