Rangers striker Jean-Claude Darcheville has declared that he wants to move back to his native France after reported interest from Marseille.

It would seem Rangers would not stand in Darcheville's way as the arrival of strikers Kenny Miller, Kyle Lafferty, Andrius Velicka and the return to form of Kris Boyd have sent the Frenchman down the Ibrox pecking order.

Darcheville told the French press: "There is no doubt Marseille will always be a legendary club. I'm not sure I could refuse that kind of offer."

Rangers boss Walter Smith is rumoured to be looking to trim his squad in the January transfer window and as the 33-year-old signed a new two-year deal in June last year Smith will look to receive a cash deal for the player.

Darchville, who joined the club at the beginning of last season, became an instant hit with the fans and played an important part in helping Rangers to the UEFA Cup final.
