DJIBRIL Cisse insists he has no regrets snubbing a move to Manchester City as he tries to wreck their title hopes this afternoon.
The French frontman held talks with the Blues – then managed by current R's boss Mark Hughes – in 2006 before deciding to sign for boyhood club Marseille instead.
City have gone on to become one of the biggest forces in English football, and will clinch the title with victory over QPR at the Etihad.
However, Rangers need a point to secure Premier League survival, although they will also avoid the drop if relegation rivals Bolton fail to win at Stoke.
And Cisse insists he made the right choice turning down City's riches.
He said: “I had talks with City before I signed for Marseille. My agent had a discussion but I had a proposition from Marseille.
“They are my club so I decided to go back to France. I have no regrets. Marseille is a big club and the club that I support.”
Cisse has a string of trophies in his cabinet after spells at some of Europe's top clubs.
The 30-year-old won the Champions League with Liverpool in 2005 as well as cups with Auxerre and Panathinaikos.
However, he admits this afternoon's showdown with City is one of the biggest matches of his career.
He added: “This game is in the top three, along with the Champions League final and French Cup final.
“The pressure is the same. We have a lot to lose. We're playing for our future and the club's future.
“I want to be a Premier League player after the game. That's my main concern.
“We've got quality in our team and are fighting for our lives. We're going to go there and try and play our football and see what we can do.”
