Wigan star Lee McCulloch is delighted he has had the chance to help keep the club in The Premiership.
The former Motherwell forward demanded a transfer in January as Scottish giants Rangers looked to lure him to Ibrox - but Wigan rebuffed their approaches.
While his long-term future remains far from clear - McCulloch insists that he is loving helping Wigan stay in the top-flight, a cause which looks increasingly likely.
"I'm glad that is all behind me. The big relief for me was when the transfer window shut after the Reading game," he told the Wigan Evening Post
"In my mind that was a big thing, and since then I have started to pick my game up.
"I've wanted to show the manager and fans I want Wigan to stay up.
"I've been here for a long time now and the club is in my blood, so I want to show everyone I have got the will to win and make sure there is no disappointment at the end of the season.
"The most important thing for me is to try to stay in the team and get over the 40-point barrier.
"During the transfer window, my lowest point of the season was the Everton game.
"But since then it's started to pick up."
