On-loan El Hadji Diouf has hinted he would like to seal a permanent move from Blackburn Rovers to Rangers over the summer.
The Senegalese forward has enjoyed a successful spell at Ibrox having joined on loan for the remainder of the season in January.
Diouf still has one year remaining on his Blackburn contract, but he admits talks have taken place over a possible stay.
The 30-year-old helped win the Co-operative Insurance Cup and SPL title during his time with the Light Blues and he thinks the club is 'magic'.
"We are talking right now with the club to see what will happen after this season but I will tell you now this club is magic, really unbelievable," he told the club's official website.
"The fans have been great and I have won two trophies and that is why I came here.
"Before I joined people asked me why I was coming because some people thought I was better than that, but no, I am not, this club is magic and I love the fans and want to thank them for everything."
The former Liverpool, Sunderland and Bolton player savoured the celebrations on Sunday as 40,000 Rangers fans descended on Ibrox to greet the players on their return from their title-clinching victory at Kilmarnock.
Diouf continued: "Ibrox was brilliant, an amazing atmosphere and one of the best moments of my career.
"My whole time here has been one of the best in my football life.
"I've only been here for four months but everyone loves me and I got one of the best receptions from the fans.
"Winning was such a big moment, but not for me, for the fans. That is what football is about, the supporters."
