Goian vows to return to Gers

The Romania defender became the latest first-team regular to

head for the Ibrox exit door last week when he sealed a move to

Italian Serie B side Spezia.

Goian told the Daily Record: “In 10 months, I’ll be back to

Glasgow. I am in Italy for one year for a loan and that’s it.

“When it’s over I’ll have my contract with Rangers again and I

hope something is going to change and I’ll get the chance to play

in the SPL again with Rangers.

“I think it will happen because I heard before I left many teams

will have problems with money this year without Rangers. The TV

money is down so there is good reason to make it so Rangers can

come back quickly.”

The 31-year-old was left out of his national team squad for a

recent friendly with Slovenia and added: “I was happy to stay, no

matter the division which Rangers were playing. I had an offer from

a club in Turkey but I wasn’t looking to go anywhere.

“However, things with the national team then became clear and

made up my mind for me. The national team and my country is very

important, it means everything to me and it is the biggest thing a

player can have.

“This is a World Cup year and I want to have the opportunity to

be involved with the squad as we try to make it to the finals in

2014 in Brazil.”
