Rangers' Bougherra has no regrets over move

The former Charlton defender admitted that the potential lure of European football was one of the decisive factors in his move. "I saw the game on Tuesday night but I had no doubts about having signed," said Bougherra.

"When you come here you know that Rangers will play every season in Europe, and it's a dream for the players.

"I was very disappointed sitting in my room. It was raining, and I didn't feel good.

"Afterwards it was brighter and I thought 'My contract is four years' - and we will win the championship and there will be no worries.

"Of course, European football was a big reason for me coming here.

"I saw the Uefa Cup final last year and I knew that there would be the chance of Champions League football every year, so it was a dream.

"I want to play in the Champions League next year. But I can wait for Europe - it's no problem. I am 25, so I have time to play in Europe.

"I never thought I had made a mistake. It was frustrating watching Rangers go out. But now it's behind us, and we're concentrating on the league and we want to win trophies."
