Cuellar would relish Rangers return

Aston Villa defender Carlos Cuellar is excited by the prospect of returning to Rangers, with the Spaniard praising "the city, the club, the people" as speculation mounts about a move to Ibrox.

Cuellar, 29, quit the Scottish champions for Aston Villa three years ago after just one season at Rangers. The Spanish centre-back impressed in that campaign though as the Gers won a domestic cup double and reached the UEFA Cup final.

Now he has been linked with a move back to the Glasgow giants as new boss Ally McCoist prepares for his first campaign at the helm and the former Osasuna man welcomed the prospect of a move north of the border.

Cuellar told the Daily Record: "I have to find out what Villa want me to do but I'm very surprised to hear that Rangers want me back. It's exciting because Rangers, for me, has so many good memories.

"It's exciting if there is a possibility to go back because all of those good memories come back - the city, the club, the people, how much they loved me and how much I loved them.

"Then there is the Champions League and the chance to win trophies again. Who wouldn't be excited about something like that?"

Cuellar fell out of favour at Villa Park under Gerrard Houllier in the 2010-11 season, starting just ten Premier League games, but he may be tempted to see if he features in the new manager's plans.
