El-Hadji Diouf said on Wednesday he was looking to earn a permanent move to Scottish giants Rangers after enjoying his brief loan spell there.

The Senegalese forward joined Rangers on loan from English side Blackburn Rovers last January and is due to return to the English outfit this summer.

During his short stint with Rangers, the former Liverpool, Sunderland and Bolton forward helped them win the Scottish League and League Cup titles.

“We are talking right now with the club to see what will happen after this season but I will tell you now this club is magic, really unbelievable," he told the club's official website.

"The fans have been great and I have won two trophies and that is why I came here.

"Before I joined people asked me why I was coming because some people thought I was better than that, but no, I am not, this club is magic and I love the fans and want to thank them for everything."
