Bougherra unfazed by speculation

26 January 2011 10:00

Madjid Bougherra believes the Rangers players are too professional to be affected by transfer speculation surrounding himself and his teammates.

There are fears that more players could follow Kenny Miller out of the Ibrox door during the January transfer window after the Scotland striker signed for Turkish club Bursaspor last week. Bougherra is seen as one of the more sellable assets at the Govan club and has been linked with a move to Arsenal.

However, the Rangers defender told BBC ALBA`s CLUB TV: "From the last two years I'm here, I don't remember any times when a player was troubled, or not concentrating, as a result of transfer rumours."

Bougherra added: "We need to stay professional. Experience helps you take this transfer speculation in your stride, and keep working, because if you keep working, whether the rumour is true or not, the big move will come one day."
