I'm Living The Dream

Written by 

CAMMY BELL has expressed his pride and joy after agreeing a four-year deal with Rangers and he admits the move to his boyhood heroes is a dream come true.

The 26-year-old shotstopper is a lifelong Bluenose and after months of speculation he was finally unveiled as the latest addition to Ally McCoist’s squad at Ibrox Stadium today. 

As the Scotland international walked down the famous tunnel and onto the hallowed turf it would have been impossible to wipe the broad smile from his face and after a decade at Kilmarnock he is relishing a new and exciting challenge at an important stage of his career.

Bell will not be registered until September 1 but he can’t wait to meet up with his new teammates for pre-season training at Murray Park at the end of June as preparations begin for stage 2 of the journey back to the top of the Scottish game.

He said: “It’s been a long time coming for me. It’s great just to be here at a club of this size and a club I’ve always followed a youngster. It’s just a dream come true really.

“I think I’ve got enough experience now. I’ve played for a few years in the SPL and I’ve got that behind me.

“I needed to do that before I moved on and I had opportunities to move before now, it wasn't right though as I needed a bit longer.

"I think now is the right time for me to step on and it’s a no brainer, it didn’t take me long to make the decision.

“I got a phone call from my agent who told me Rangers were going to offer me a contract. He also said another team was going to offer me a contract down south and they wanted me to go down the next day.

“I said ‘no, forget it’ as I wanted to go to Rangers and that was it, I had made my decision.

“That was the club I wanted to go to and I know I’ve made the right decision.

“They’ve got all the facilities you need, the fans, the whole package.

“It’s a massive club and it’s one of the biggest clubs in Europe so there was no way I was going to turn down the chance to be a Rangers player.”

Bell, of course, has already sampled the Ibrox atmosphere during his 10-year spell at Killie but knows playing in front of a full house wearing a Rangers jersey will be an altogether different experience.

He added: “Totally. To run out in front of 50,000 fans will be an amazing feeling and hopefully I can prove to the fans that I can be a Rangers number 1. That’s my first job is to go out and prove to people that I’m good enough to be here.”
