Cyriel Dessers has revealed he turned down offers from clubs in Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands to sign for Scottish side, Rangers.
Dessers moved to the Gers from Serie B side, Cremonese in a deal worth €4m last week.
The 28-year-old spent just one season at Cremonese, netting seven times in 29 league outings.
The Nigerian international arrived the Ibrox with a good reputation having won the top scorer award two seasons ago in the UEFA Europa Conference League.
The striker had several options on the table after deciding to quit Cremonese following the club’s relegation last season but was attracted by former Scottish Premiership champions, Rangers.
“Of course, I had some options to stay in Italy, there were also some other options again in Belgium and the Netherlands. I don’t think it’s smart to name the clubs here,” Dessers told a press conference on Tuesday.
“Rangers is massive and I like what is happening here, the group, players already here and the manager who has a really good idea of what he wants on and off the pitch is fundamental for me.
“That’s why I made the choice, I looked at the training ground, I looked at the stadium, I looked at how the club wants to work very professionally, and that’s something I was looking for so it was pretty easy chooice actually.”
