Former Fulham defender Ragnar Sigurdsson admits it was his own fault that he struggled to hold down a regular starting spot at Fulham after a successful Euro 2016 with Iceland.

The 31-year-old signed for Fulham, the only over 28 player that Fulham's recruitment team have signed, having helped his country get to the quarter-finals of the competition, scoring against England in the last 16 as they knocked Roy Hodgson's side out of the Euros.

But it was a time to forget for the Icelandic international having made only 18 appearances in total with his last start coming in the Valentine's Day win over Nottingham Forest before falling out of favour completely with Slavisa Jokanovic .

Sigurdsson was then loaned out to Rubin Kazan in August, and it would be easy to blame the manager or other factors for his lack of game time, but the central defender blames no one but himself for his experiences at Craven Cottage.

Sigurdsson told Icelandic website visir.is: "I have had a great time to think about it. I have come to the conclusion that it was my own fault.

"I was not serious at all when I was in the club. At last, the coach lost faith in me. I can not blame him, I can only blame myself. "You have to be realistic about something like that, because it does not help to walk around and lie to yourself."
