However, he has no regrets about leaving Ibrox and has said, as per Football Daily:

“It took a bit of time to get to know all the different lads and the coaching staff, but I’ve enjoyed my time here. It was difficult (to leave), but I think it was quite an easy decision to come to the best league in the world.

“There was no second thought for me, and a massive club like Everton made it an easy decision.”
