Bullish Fabio Silva insists he left Rangers a more "complete" player - but doesn't fancy a move back to Ibrox from Wolves.

The loanee struggled to find top form in the Scottish Premiership after making his move from the English Premier League in January. He signed off his six-month spell with Philippe Clement's men in the Scottish Cup Final defeat to Celtic - having failed to fire the Light Blues' to title glory during a rollercoaster race for the silverware.

Silva found the net just six times during his time north of the border, also sparking ire from Rangers' supporters following a sting of lacklustre showings. The Portuguese U21 international also faced a backlash from the diehards at Ibrox after scoring against Kilmarnock - when he turned to show his name on the back of his shirt while raising the shoulders towards the crowd, before appearing to shush the home support.

But despite his struggles in Glasgow making it unlikely that Rangers would look to bring him back next season - Silva claims it was his call on his next move after talks with his agent. Speaking to Portuguese outlet O Jogo about his time in Scotland, he said: "It's not good to always be moving countries. Rangers made me more complete.

"I played in a different position, as a left winger, I scored goals, I felt good. Before that I was just I played as a nine, now I can play in all offensive positions.

"I learned to manage my emotions better. When I was 18, I left a game and wanted to see what people were saying about me on social media. Now I know when I'm doing things well or badly, I know how to be self-critical."

He was then pressed on his future - and took a return to Rangers off the table: "It's no secret that I don't want to stay at Wolverhampton. We both agree, now we have to try to find the best situation for both of us to be happy.

"I already told my agent: I want to play in Spain. I'm telling the truth, it's the destination I would like to have. I like the culture, the country, La Liga football.... I think that my style fits very well with the Spanish style."
