Former Rangers winger admits desire to return

Ex-Rangers’ winger Salim Kerkar, who has become something of a cult hero since his departure from Ibrox, has dropped yet another hint that he sees himself returning one day.

The French Algerian forward had a fleeting time of it at Ibrox, managing 18 appearances, but got himself a decent move to English Championship outfit Charlton Athletic (who also supplied Rangers with another French Algerian international in the shape of Madjid Bougherra) before becoming a free agent for well over half a year.

And he has admitted on many occasions he would like to return to Rangers, confessing his love on his Twitter account with his bio describing him as:

"Ex Glasgow Rangers layer and fan"

However tonight’s comment went even further:

"If you have the chance To visit scotland, go To #ibrox. This Will made your holiday. #rfc"

While not as explicit a confession of his desire to don the light blue again as he has provided before, nevertheless he has shown more than once that if he had the chance to return to Rangers, he would take it.

Unfortunately for him, it is extremely unlikely Mark Warburton would take him up on his offer.


  1. Salim Kerkar the former 28 year old, left sided Rangers winger / midfield player offered Charlton a better balance after their skipper Jackson’s switch inside. He also slotted in as an emergency left-back on a couple of occasions due to injuries. Manager Powell said: “He was a player who came to our attention while we were on tour and has been involved in close to half our games, featuring prominently in the first half of the season.“Since the turn of the year he has not featured so much, but he was integral in the early part of the season and he had plenty of assists. He did very well for us so we wish him well in the future, as we do all those who are leaving the club.” It is my opinion that MW probably would not be interested in him unless he came to us for a trial period.

  2. Want to be taking a look at young McMullan of St Mirren, looked a different class to everyone on the pitch Friday night.

    1. Don't say that mate. He's on loan from Celtic lol

  3. Salim Kerkar came back when so many so called Rangers men did not.

    For that alone he has the respect of Rangers supporters.

  4. Salim is welcome back anytime
