Rangers Bougherra would relish Premiership return

Madjid Bougherra admits he would welcome the opportunity to take in a second spell in the Premier League. The Algerian centre-half has turned out in England for Crewe, Sheffield Wednesday and Charlton Athletic, but took in just half a season in the top flight during his time with the Addicks.

"I am tired after the World Cup so I want to have a holiday and recharge for next season," the 27 year old told skysports.com.

"First of all I am a Rangers player, my contract runs until 2012, so I am fine there.

"I heard that Hamburg and Arsenal are interested through the papers, but there is nothing official as yet.

"I would choose the Premier League if I had a choice, I love the English mentality and their football is the best.

"I want to test myself against the likes of (Wayne) Rooney, (Didier) Drogba, (Fernando) Torres and (Emmanuel) Adebayor as those guys let you know what level you are at.

"For me, it is also time for pay back because I don't think a lot of people remember that I played in the Premier League with Charlton."
