RANGERS reserve keeper Jesper Christiansen is keen for a move away from Ibrox to try and secure first-team football.

The 25-year-old joined Rangers from Odense in October 2000, but has played just three league matches for The Gers.

He spent time on loan at Bundesliga side Wolfsburg last season but a serious back injury ruined his chance of establishing himself at the club.

Stefan Klos is firmly established as Rangers' number one shot-stopper, with Allan McGregor acting as back-up, and Christiansen believes his future could be better served away from the SPL champions.

He told Danish paper BT: "It is tremendously important for me to get playing again. I have been out for a long time and it is important for me to get my career back on track.

"I have two years left on my contract but there is not much chance for me to play in Glasgow.

"I have not planned to sit on the bench because I still have ambitions to play for the national side. So I am open for everything - both a loan deal and a transfer."

The keeper has said that he is happy at Rangers but at 25, he needs to be playing regular first-team football and that is unlikely to happen at Ibrox.

"It looks bad," he added. "Stefan Klos is playing really well and they have extended the contract with the back-up keeper and it looks as though they will invest in him."
