Brisbane Roar's McKay still hoping he can join Rangers

Matt McKay still hopes a deal can be struck so he can join Scottish champions Rangers. The Brisbane Roar skipper is set to return home after Australia's friendly win over Wales in Cardiff on Wednesday night without signing a deal with 'Gers but insists he would take an opportunity if it happened to come his way.

"We're just talking at the moment. There's a few things to work through, but if the opportunity comes I'll grab it with both hands and go there," he said.

"I went up and had a look at the club when I got into the UK earlier this week. It's a very prestigious club and to have the interest is great.

"It's very impressive. I've seen the training ground which is unbelievable and the stadium. The atmosphere they have at games is phenomenal as well.

"They are a massive club, they're up for titles every year. I'd love the chance, but at the moment I've got no idea when a deal will be done."

However, one slight snag regarding the potential deal is that midfielder McKay has not played the required 75% of internationals with Australia over the past two years to ensure a working visa for Europe.
