Ex-Empoli, Lazio defender Cribari eyeing Rangers stay

Rangers defender Emilson Cribari admits he would like to play for the club longer than his initial two-year contract.

The 32-year old Brazilian centre-back joined 'Gers in the summer after leaving homeland club Cruzeiro and even though he has yet to fully settle in Scotland's Third Division, he hopes to remain at Ibrox for a while yet.

"I am certainly thinking about staying longer than two years here," the former Empoli, Udinese and Lazio man told the Daily Record.

"So far everything is going well, I'm playing all the games, we're first in the league and talking about moving up the divisions.

"I am very happy here and even playing in the Scottish fourth tier, the crowds are amazing. Having over 40,000 people watching you every week is very exciting and it's something I didn't expect.

"I had a proposal to go to Italy or return to Brazil and then, just before signing, I got a phone call from Rangers.

"I want to be remembered by the Rangers fans as a guy that helped them get back where they belong."
