Rangers striker Nikica Jelavic has outlined his ambitions to one day play in the English Premier League.

The Croatian international had plenty of interest during the summer transfer window from the likes of Leicester City and Turkish club Fenerbache but said he decided to stay at Rangers to win titles.

However, he has also made it clear that he does want to make it to England’s top flight in the future meaning one day he will depart Ibrox.

"In all honesty, I am very happy here," the 26-year old told Rangers Monthly.

"While there was a good offer from Leicester, that is not a club I want to move on to if I am to leave.

"Fenerbahce's proposal was really interesting but I wanted to stay at Rangers because we have a very good chance of winning the title again this season.

"At the moment, I'm really not thinking about any new clubs. I enjoy it in Glasgow, my family are happy here too and I still have three years left on my contract.

"For me, the best league in Europe is in England and I would like to play there one day, although Spain and Germany are also very attractive.

"It is natural that I should want to play in the best competitions, and it would be nice to do that at some point, but I'm really not thinking about any of that at the moment.”
