Carlos Cuellar has announced his decision to leave Israeli side Beitar Jerusalem on Wednesday, despite only joining the club in July - and some Rangers fans are desperate to see him return to Ibrox.

Now 37 years of age, Cuellar made just two appearances for Beitar in Europa League qualifying, where his side lost 2-1 on aggregate over two legs to Georgian outfit Chikhura Sachkhere.


The Spanish defender, who has turned out for 10 professional clubs across England, Spain, Israel and Scotland, is now on the lookout for a new club in order to extend his career as much as possible.


Cuellar played 55 times for Rangers after completing a move to Ibrox from Spanish side Osasuna for a fee believed to be in the region of £2million (Eurosport).

However, Cuellar left within one season after starring north of the border in Rangers' Europa League campaign, with Aston Vila paying almost £8million to land the defender in August 2018.

He posted on Twitter a farewell message to Beitar fans, and some Rangers supporters reacted to the post by trying to tempt him to consider a return to Ibrox in July 2007.
