The Algeria international was a surprise participant as Ally McCoist's squad returned for pre-season training.

The French-born centre-back made 65 appearances for Hearts before leaving for Greek football in 2011 but a return to Scottish football did not go to plan last season.

The 30-year-old made the last of four appearances for Kilmarnock in October before suffering a knee injury and failed to break back into the first team despite being handed a new contract in January.

Rangers' official website stated that McCoist would "assess Bouzid over the next few days".

There was no sign of Bouzid's former Killie team-mate, Kris Boyd, who has held talks over a Rangers return amid interest from Scottish Premiership clubs such as Aberdeen.

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
