Francisco Sandaza, the 28-year-old Spanish centre-forward who signed for Rangers last summer, is likely to become a figure of hate at Ibrox after he admitted he moved to Rangers simply for money.
Sandaza’s incredible statements were made is a supposed off the record conversation with an MLS agent. Only the person on the other end of the line wasn’t ‘Jack McGonigle’ as the caller announced. Instead it was a Glaswegian taxi driver called Tommy, who is a diehard Celtic fan.
So what happened.
After managing to get Sandaza’s number, cabby Tommy posed as a Los Angeles based agent who pretended to be interested in recruiting the Spaniard.
Sandaza immediately took the bait, and the Spaniard was only too happy to express his true feelings about being at Rangers to a faceless voice he’d only just be introduced to down the phone line.
I didn’t sign for the level, I signed for the money. I’ll get another contract after Rangers.
When discussing a possibly move Stateside, Sandaza made sure to stress that he didn’t want Rangers to be aware of any potential transfer.
Do not do it officially through the club. Send me the contract first. I don’t want trouble if Rangers find out about this.
Sandaza’s comments are likely to go down like a ton of bricks at Ibrox, and it would be no surprise to see the Rangers faithful immediately turn on the Spaniard and demand that he be shipped out the club as quickly as possible.
