Jeffers: I'm a better player now
Motherwell new-boy Francis Jeffers has claimed that he is a better footballer now than when he was last in the SPL during a loan move at Rangers in 2005.
Jeffers, 30, could make his debut against the Gers, after he failed to score a single goal during his time at Ibrox. But the striker, who left A-League side Newcastle Jets, now thinks he is back to his best.
The former Everton and Arsenal striker said on the club's official website: "I think I'm a better footballer now than when I was a young lad. I wasn't really involved in the game in the past; I would just be a poacher.
"I don't think I have a point to prove; if I get the chance I will score goals. I didn't have the best time at Rangers in terms of form. I really enjoyed the time at the club but I didn't play my best football and I really suffered with injuries and didn't get a run in the team."
Jeffers also insisted his hunger for the game remains strong following his spell in Australia.
He added: "I will prove that on the football field. People asked the same question when I went over to Australia and I was pretty successful there. Motherwell fans will see what hunger I have when I play my first match.
"Whether or not I play (at Rangers) I will certainly look forward to making the trip. I want to enjoy my game, win some football matches and, hopefully, help Motherwell climb the league."
