CARLOS BOCANEGRA has dropped his biggest hint yet that he will not be staying with newco Rangers.
The American international made an appearance at a charity baseball game at home at the weekend and said that he would welcome a return to the MLS, where his career began with Chicago Fire in 2000.
With Gers now facing a future outwith the top flight, it would appear that the centre-back will follow other stars by walking away from Ibrox, where he is due to return this week.
Bocanegra said: "I would 100% consider playing in MLS again. I started here and I know the league well. I know it's a demanding league, a physical league. I'd never rule it out."
Meanwhile, Sasa Papac still hasn't decided if he will continue playing this season.
The defender quit Rangers at the end of last term after his contract expired and has offers from several European clubs.
Spanish side Osasuna want the full-back to help them in La Liga this season but his agent, Petar Bazic, says it is not 100 per cent the stopper will continue playing.
He said: "Sasa is now on holiday with one decision to make – does he carry on or stop playing altogether.
"His fitness is good right now and he could carry on, but football at the top level can be tough on the mind.
"Sasa has had a lot to deal with at Rangers and that can affect a player and their motivation.
"He enjoyed life in Scotland, but maybe there comes a point when you feel that it's right to stop.
"I will not pressure him and will give him space to decide for himself.
"All I can say is that he is fit enough to keep playing and there are good offers on the table for him.
"There are two excellent offers from Turkey and one good one from Russia. There is also interest in England and other countries.
"But, first, Sasa has to make a decision – and he will reach that with him family."
