The 28-year-old left Ibrox to ease the club's financial difficulties and after a promising start in England, Broadfoot is now targeting a return to the Scotland squad.

"I am not going to lie, it was difficult," he told The Herald on his decision to quit. "It is hard to put into words. I didn't really want to leave, but because of the football I missed I had to go.

"I went and gave everybody a cuddle, including the manager. I said thank you for everything. It was hard to take because it was such a big step when I drove out of those gates at Murray Park for the last time. I didn't realise how big a step it was.

"I took a wage cut to go to Blackpool. I did it to help Rangers and I did it to help my career. I hoped getting off the wage bill would help the manager bring other players in. It worked both ways."

He added: "The Championship has been like a breath of fresh air, going to all these new stadiums, playing against different teams and players. If I can get a few more games the new Scotland manager might come down and have a look and I might even get back into the set-up.

"The ambition is to get in the play-offs with Blackpool. I have now played five on the bounce at centre-half which I feel is my best position. Things are on the up."

ve been really impressed by Adrian when I've seen West Ham matches. Really good keeper and has earnt the 'Ammers many a point this season. Wouldn't swap Lloris for anyone either, he's currently far too good for us.
