Ex-Brisbane Roar skipper McKay relieved to end Rangers nightmare

Matt McKay has revealed he is relieved to have finally ended his unsuccessful spell with Scottish giants Rangers.

The 29-year old Australian midfielder left A-League champions Brisbane Roar to join 'Gers in August but managed just three appearances for the now-struggling Glasgow giants.

McKay has now joined Korean club Busan I'Park on a two-year deal and says he is looking forward to getting on with the next chapter of his career.

"I wish I had done things in a different manner and done a bit more research [before going to Rangers ], but it was an opportunity I had to take and I'll learn from it," he told The Courier Mail after leaving the club which has entered adminstration.

"I've really thought about this move. The Korean league should suit me.

"I spoke to him (manager Ally McCoist) a week before the club went into administration and he was keen to keep me," he added.

"He saw me as a player that will fit into the squad and told me that my chances would come, but I couldn't see that coming.

"I thought I didn't do that bad to not warrant ever playing again. I felt I could have done a job... I just wasn't given an opportunity.

"It's disappointing that it didn't work out that way but I'm man enough to move on. I'm not going to sit there, just collect my money and not play. That's not who I am."
