The club have been fantastic since I’ve come in. “Everything I’ve asked for I’ve generally got and if we can’t get it then we can only ask.

He told SunSport: “I was fortunate to get a few good results at Ibrox. “I won there with Kilmarnock and Hibs — while a draw with St Mirren was also highly satisfying. “I think it was Paul le Guen’s second-last game as Rangers boss and they equalised for a point. “They’d been struggling but they still had a team including the likes of Allan McGregor, Alan Hutton , Sasa Papac, Barry Ferguson , Nacho Novo and Kris Boyd . “I was 41 and loving being able to play as much as ever. “That was my last game at Ibrox.
