Funny how our response to his non-signing has changed from then to now. :D


Quite happy we never signed him now. Good luck to him playing Championship football while we play Champions League.


Burnley winger Chris Eagles is relaxed over his decision to ignore Rangers' advances and stay put at Turf Moor.


The Scottish giants had a bid accepted for the 24-year-old Londoner, who headed north to Glasgow with Walter Smith believing he was going to make a rare signing.


Yet Eagles returned to Burnley, contacted operational director Brendan Flood and immediately agreed a two-year deal that includes a clause adding an extra season should the club get back into the Premier League.


"The decision to stay was not hard at all," he said. "It would have been harder to leave. That is why I didn't. It just didn't feel right. I can't explain it. My mum brought me up to play with a smile on my face.


"Thankfully, the fans stuck with me. When the season started and there were all these rumours my head was all over the place.


"But I am settled now and need to thank Brian Laws for having enough faith in me to push Brendan Flood for my contract, so I could start again and prove what I could do."
