Norwich City striker Kyle Lafferty, who is on loan at Rizespor, says he would be open to rejoining Rangers ahead of Northern Ireland’s clash with Scotland.
Lafferty joined Norwich over the summer from Serie A side Palermo whilst the Canaries tried to boost their strike force for the Championship season.
But after only scoring one goal in 17 appearances in the league, he was loaned out to Turkish side Rizespor on the January deadline day.
An international for Northern Ireland, Lafferty will play at Ibrox, were he spent four years, winning three Scottish Premier League titles and scored a total of 38 goals during his time there.
Lafferty told the Glasgow Evening Times: “Some Rangers fans have asked me if I’d go back there and I’d jump at the chance. What happened for me at Rangers was disappointing. That wasn’t how I wanted to end my career there, but it had to be done.
“I’ve supported Rangers since I was a young boy and still support them now.
“It would be good to go back to change people’s perceptions of me. If I went back now I’d let my football do the talking. Hopefully that would change their minds of me.
“I’ve matured, definitely. I realised that if you want to mess around then you need to follow it up with football. When I was at Rangers I didn’t do that enough. I let my football do the talking and I’m enjoying it much more.”
Lafferty had an eventful time at Rangers. He was involved in an argument with manager Ally McCoist after a Twitter spat with then Celtic manager Neil Lennon. He was subsequently suspended for two weeks.
The striker was also banned for simulation after pretending to head butted by Charlie Mulgrew which then got the Aberdeen midfielder sent off.
Alex Neil’s Norwich City side are currently fourth in the Sky Bet Championship, having amassed 70 points thus far this season.
