Braga winger Aaron Niguez has told The Scottish Sun that he would like a return to Ibrox - and thinks he would be an important addition for the club.

Niguez, now 27, is currently playing in Portugal with Braga, but has been looking back on the short time he spent on loan in Scotland with Rangers.

The Spaniard was on the books with Valencia for 11 years, but was loaned out five times as he made no first-team appearances for the La Liga giants - and one of those loan moves was to Ibrox.

Niguez was just 19 when he penned a two-year loan deal with the Gers, but after just five appearances - in which he scored two goals - the winger's loan spell was terminated.

Despite future moves to Celta Vigo, Recreativo, Almeria, Elche and now Braga, it's clear that the year Niguez spent in Glasgow is still important to the player, more than seven years on.

Speaking to The Scottish Sun, Niguez admitted that he would love to make a return to Rangers in the future, as he loved the Ibrox crowd and enjoyed his time in Scotland despite the limited first-team football during his time under Walter Smith.

Niguez, who primarily plays as a left winger, also suggested that he could be an important addition for the Gers, as he has matured since his first spell with the club.

"I’d love to return to Rangers. The fans were great with me," said Niguez. "I was really young when I was there and now I feel I’ve learned and matured a lot as a player. I think I could be an important addition to the squad. I hope that one day I can go back to the blue sea of Ibrox."

"My experience in Scotland was a really positive one, even though I didn’t play a lot. It was a real step in my formation as a player, being part of a team of brilliant players that won the league and cup double. I’ve got really good memories of my time in Scotland and I’m really happy that Rangers are back in the SPL where I’m convinced they will fight for the title," he added.

With the likes of Barrie McKay, Michael O'Halloran, Harry Forrester, Niko Kranjcar and Josh Windass already at the club, adding another attacking midfielder may not be top of Mark Warburton's list of priorities right now, meaning a move for Niguez may seem unlikely - but at 27, he still has plenty of time to get his move back to Ibrox.
