Is Samaras heading from Manchester City to Rangers?

Greek international striker Georgios Samaras is looking for a window of opportunity to move from Manchester City to a place where he can play more football. And the Scottish Premier League could provide the answer

Sky Sports reports that the former Heerenveen striker is eager to move out on loan for the rest of the season in order to garner more games with the Euro 2008 finals in mind. Samaras says:

”At this moment I need to find somewhere to play football. I have the European Championship this summer and I need to play games before then. I would be happy to go to Scotland. I would not have any problem with leaving the Premiership – playing football is the main thing for me. I would have the chance of European football with Rangers and that is also very interesting. But it would be a loan. I’m not looking for a full-time move.”

Rangers have been touted as the most likely courtiers of the player and although the January transfer window is fast slamming down, there could yet be some time for the Greek to board a plane for Glasgow and stay there for the rest of the season. Not that City manager Sven-Goran Eriksson would mind losing the player, though.
