Madjid Bougherra believes he shouldn't have been sent off in Rangers' Champions League qualifying defeat against Malmo.

Madjid Bougherra has claimed that he shouldn't have been sent off in Rangers' Champions League qualifying defeat against Malmo.

The Gers drew 1-1 on the night but lost 2-1 on aggregate, with the Algerian seeing red for what looked like the use of an elbow when contesting an aerial ball.

"I don't think it was a red card. I put my hand out to block him," the 28-year-old told Rangers' official website.

"I didn't judge it well, but that is football."

The match looks to have been the Algerian international's last for the club, with a £1.7m move to Qatari side Lekhwiya imminent.

"If it's my last game of course I'm disappointed by the way it has finished," he added.

"The past three years have been fantastic and we have won six titles."

The Scottish champions will now play a qualifier to enter the Europa League.
