On-loan defender Andy Webster hopes his spell at Bristol City can rejuvenate his Rangers career.
The 26-year-old has been hampered with injuries since leaving Hearts for Wigan in the summer of 2006, and he has only managed a handful of appearances since his move to Ibrox last January.
Webster told skysports.com he hopes to get some games under his belt during his spell at Ashton Gate, and he believes a string of first-team outings with the Championship outfit could earn him a place in Walter Smith's plans.
He said: "A lot of time has been spent with injuries. I've had three operations in the 18-month period at Rangers and it's not ideal for a footballer to be injured for so long.
"It's been very difficult to get over it with the injuries, but hopefully I'll get involved and play some football for Bristol City."
Webster admits his long-term aim to is get back into the Rangers frame, but is happy to have the chance to play regularly with City.
He added: "This loan period is all about playing football. I don't see my future away from Rangers or I wouldn't have signed there.
"It would be the ideal scenario to go back and play football for Rangers, but as I've come to realise you don't always get what you want in football."
