French international Sidney Govou admits he is not currently tempted by a possible move to Rangers.
Former Lyon coach Paul Le Guen takes charge at Ibrox this summer and Govou is one of a host of French names being linked with a move to Glasgow.
Le Guen is expected to bring in a number of big names with the financial backing of Gers supremo David Murray.
Govou, though, admits that he is not enamoured by Rangers and Scotland in general.
"Could I join Le Guen at Rangers? I don't know," he told But!
"I don't think I will go there, Scotland is not a league that attracts me."
Govou does admit he could change his mind - but also suggests Marseille would be his preferred destination.
"Perhaps I won't have the same words in a few weeks," he admitted.
"Anyway Paul didn't call me, but L'OM? May be.
"That could be exciting. L'OM is a special club."
Govou also admits that he now must leave Lyon this summer.
"I still have two years remaining on my Lyon contract, and at the moment I am thinking about my future," he said.
"Before, I wanted to leave to improve, I see me in a great foreign club, but now things have changed and I absolutely need to see something else.
"It is more psychological thing than a sport one.
"I won't look only at a club's status."
The striker insists that things at Lyon have changed.
"Things are really different at the club now, the atmosphere, daily life," he said.
"Since last season, I have less fun."
