Thomson targeting Premier League

Next Story

Kevin Thomson admitted the lure of playing in the Barclays Premier League was a key factor in leaving Rangers to sign for Middlesbrough.

Thomson has swapped the Champions League for the npower Championship, but his £2million signing has consolidated Middlesbrough's status as title favourites.

"It's a new challenge and a fresh start for me," Thomson told

"The Rangers fans were great to me and I'll never forget my three-and-a-half years there.

"I won back-to-back titles, we reached the UEFA Cup final and we picked up a couple of cups along the way too, so it was a successful time.

"Now I'm ready to take a new step in my career. My ambition is to play in the Premier League and I think I can do that with Middlesbrough."
