"I left Rangers on really good terms. They are all fantastic people there.

"One or two clubs showed an interest in me, but Cardiff showed a firm interest.

"I came down and spoke to the manager, Sam Hammam and Peter Ridsdale and I was really impressed with what they had to say.

"I had a long discussion with them on Sunday night. We discussed a lot of things and what impressed me was their ambition. Cardiff is a very ambitious club."
