Ipswich Town defender Christophe Berra has admitted that he turned down an offer from Rangers before signing a deal with the Tractor Boys.
Berra, who left Wolverhampton Wanderers at the end of last season after his contract expired at Molineux, reveals that he preferred to remain in England rather than return to Scotland with Rangers.
The 28-year-old told BBC Radio Suffolk: "They're a massive club. I just wanted to stay down in England"
"I'm only 28 and I've got my peak years ahead of me. I wanted to come here and push for promotion to the Premier League, where everyone wants to be."
The former Hearts defender has linked up with former boss Mick McCarthy at Portman Road.
