On loan Arsenal defender Kyle Bartley is prepared to play anywhere for Rangers in order to force his way back into the team.

The 20-year-old has been missing since August due to a hernia operation but has been making steady progress in his recovery.

Frustratingly for Bartley, Carlos Bocanegra has struck up an impressive partnership with Dorin Goian for Rangers in his absence, but the full-back is prepared to fight for his place.

"If I have to play a different position to get my place back, so be it," the Arsenal starlet told BBC Scotland.

"I am a keen player, the team's been doing well, the defence has been doing well.

"I said when I first came here, I wasn't going to start the first few games, but I came into the midfield and did well and stayed in the team."


Bartley made 10 appearances for Rangers after moving to Ibrox from Arsenal in January for a temporary spell.

However, Ally McCoist requested that Arsene Wenger allow the former England under-17 international to leave Arsenal for Rangers for the entire season.
