Lee Cook has sent a defiant message to the Watford boo-boys ahead of Saturday's clash at Vicarage Road - bring it on.
The Rangers winger expects to get it in the neck yet again at Vicarage Road where he started his professional career, playing 64 games before an acrimonious transfer to Loftus Road in July2004.
The fee for Cook's return to the club he loves ended up being settled by tribunal, with Rangers getting the better deal.
And in an ironic twist the following month, the Hammersmith-born star made his debut for Rs in a 3-0 defeat to his former employers, a game in which he played like a rabbit caught in the headlights after being booed throughout.
Four years on Cook has been back to the North London rivals on a couple of occasions but is still ready for the flak coming his way at a London derby that with Rangers in the Championship has temporarily replaced the bitter rivalry with Chelsea .
"I'd like to think the Watford fans have forgiven me now for leaving the club, but we'll find out on Saturday," he said.
"I expect there will be a few who give me stick but I've dealt with that before, I've played there two or three times now and taken whatever they've given me, and I'll look forward to it and enjoy it."
The Watford clash is the first of three successive London derbies for Rangers with Charlton due at Loftus Road the following Tuesday and a visit to Crystal Palace on November 29.
Rangers must use these games to reignite a stuttering promotion campaign, but will have to do without Akos Buzsaky, ruled out for the season after seriously injuring his knee in the Carling Cup defeat at Old Trafford.
"No-one was expecting Akos' injury to be that serious," said Cook. "It's a devastating blow for him and the club because he's such a big player for us."
