Slovakia international Vladimir Weiss has told reporters that his loan spell at Rangers was the best period of his career and he admits he would love a return to Ibrox, Gianluca Di Marzio report.

The former Manchester City man hit the headlines back in his homeland today as he netted during Slovakia’s impressive 2-1 win over Russia at the European Championships in France.

Weiss currently plies his trade in Qatar for Al-Gharafa having had mixed spells in England, Italy and Greece, yet a player of his calibre should be playing in a better league.

It has been a strange career thus far for the 26-year-old, and when reflecting on his happiest moment he mentions his spell with the Gers and admits he would love to return to the Glasgow club.

“Everything was fine at City until Mancini came in. He never gave me a chance, and that’s why left. The best time of my career was moving to Rangers on loan. I would love to go back,” Weiss told Gianlica Di Marzio.

Weiss joined Rangers for the 2010-11 campaign on a season-long loan deal, and he made a great impact at the club as he won the Scottish Premiership plus the League Cup during his time at Ibrox.

His biggest contribution for the Gers was to come off the bench and provide an assist for Nikica Jelavic’s League Cup final winner over rivals Celtic in-front of a packed out Hampden Park.

That season Rangers pipped Celtic to the title by one point, with Weiss scoring five goals for the club.

Mark Warburton’s side nowadays may have trouble financing a deal for the player, though with age on his side perhaps a return to Ibrox could be a possibility in the future.
