Philippe Senderos has told the Daily Record that he has “no regrets” over his move to Rangers in the summer of 2016, which saw him manage just four appearances for the Gers and get sent off in an Old Firm defeat.
Senderos, now 34, was brought to Glasgow on a free agent as Mark Warburton made a whole host of signings following the return to the top tier of Scottish football. Many have since moved on, after struggling.
Following a spell with Grasshoppers, Senderos joined Rangers on a free but he managed just four matches and was sent off after receiving two yellow cards as Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic completely annihilated Rangers 5-1 at Parkhead.
The veteran, who has since played for Houston in the MLS and Swiss side FC Chiasso – where he is currently contracted – stated that he has no regrets over a move to Glasgow and that he is still in contact with Andy Halliday.
“I don’t have any regrets whatsoever about joining Rangers. Listen, things didn’t go as planned for me but the club will always have a place in my heart and I wish them well. I’m really proud to have played for Rangers,” Senderos said.
“The fans were brilliant with me and I’ve kept in touch with some friends there and I’m pleased to see them doing well. I speak to Andy Halliday and a few of the lads who have moved on from Ibrox.”
TBR’s view – Is Senderos one of the worst ever Rangers signings?
It is hard to find a player that has a worse record at Rangers. Just four appearances, and in one of those he was sent off against bitter rivals Celtic in a 5-1 defeat. Should he have regrets? Probably.
Rangers have moved on from Senderos, bringing in Nikola Katic, Connor Goldson, George Edmundson and Filip Helander. They are in a much, much better position than having the former Arsenal defender at the back.
