Rangers players fear losing their jobs


Rangers defender Sasa Papac feels all the players are under threat of losing their jobs as administrators look to cut costs.

And Papac admits his time at Ibrox is nearing an end even if he survives after an anticipated decision on staffing levels this week.

The 32-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and expects to leave whether it is immediately or in several months' time.

The Bosnia defender said in the Scottish Sun: "We have to see what will be done by the administrators. They are the ones who have all the power and we must wait to see what happens.

"Their job is to clear Rangers' financial debts, which means we could lose a lot of players.

"The players are well paid - in fact they are paid too well for the situation Rangers finds itself in.

"Any one of the players could go now and I have no chance of getting another contract, at least not one at my existing level."
