Bougherra not relishing extra game

07 February 2011 09:30
Madjid Bougherra admits yet another game against Celtic is the last thing Rangers need after their Scottish Cup tie at Ibrox ended in a 2-2 draw. The Old Firm rivals will have to do battle again at Celtic Park in the replay to determine who will travel to Inverness for the quarter-final. As well as their Clydesdale Bank Premier League games, Rangers are also set to face the Hoops in next month's Co-operative Insurance Cup final - meaning an unprecedented seven meetings between the Glasgow giants this season. Walter Smith's men already have a packed schedule, which includes Europa League ties against Sporting Lisbon in the coming weeks, and Bougherra says the prospect of yet more games is not good news. He said: "It's not a good thing because we have many games coming up, including the Europa League. "We have a big month in February and maybe March as well. We wanted to win."
