Frantastic- Sandaza collects his pay off

Image for Frantastic- Sandaza collects his pay off

Francisco Sandaza newsFranny Sandaza has picked up a bumper pay-off from Rangers International- while Ally McCoist pleads with Craig Mather for more players.

The Spanish goal-ace was sacked in April after being duped into a conversation with a hoax football agent that was broadcast on the internet.

Ignoring all employment law Rangers International sacked Sandaza who took his appeal to the Scottish Football League.

Last night in a terse club statement the cash strapped Third Division champions admitted: “The Club can confirm tonight that we have reached a mutual agreement with Fran Sandaza to terminate his contract.”

Last summer Sandaza signed a lucrative four year deal with Sevco with his salary rising to £10,000 in it’s final season.

The exact details of the pay-off won’t be revealed but following on from Carlos Bocanegra and Dorin Goian the Spaniard becomes the third player in less than a month to be paid NOT to play by the club.

Sandaza was sacked at the start of a series of cost cutting measures which saw the club’s main physio, chief scout and reserve team coach also leave within a year of TUPE-ing their contracts over to the newco.

Earlier this week McCoist spoke in public about his wish to sign Kenny Miller but with seven players added and three paid off it’s believed that the Ibrox boss has been told to sell players before he can bring in any more newcomers.

Asked about a Miller deal McCoist explained: “I want to put the record straight on something. I have a squad that contains youngsters who have not yet earned the right to be called Rangers first-team members.

“I can rely on 18 or 19 experienced players. That’s not a criticism of anyone but in the meantime I have a budget that’s a fraction of the size it once was and I need to get in a striker who can complement Jon Daly by playing slightly behind him.

“I know who I want and I think he would be great for this club.”

    Sleekit just disnae dae economics does he? the budget that was once at Sevco’s first incarnation was gained through cheating, now that you’ve been rumbled, you have to play within the rules, shit happens eh?

    Can anyone tell me why a squad with 25+ full time players is still short of numbers to play 9 other part time teams? Or is he planning for a tilt at the League and Scottish cups? feck, I hope we draw them in one of the cups, 7-1anyone?

    Sorry Jas, have to disagree mate. As much as I’d love to see the bhoys leather the tribute act, the last thing I want is to give the cash strapped, busted flush of a club a massive payday…I dread to think of the possibility of them seeing Christmas! H x 2
