Rangeramerica: Bedoya and Bocanegra’s future lies in the balance
The Guardian reports that Rangers players have come to an agreement whereby top earners have their salaries cut by 75% while those earning less suffer a smaller 25% to 50% reduction. This was thrashed out to avoid player redundancies.
However, the BBC reports that player negotiations are still ongoing and the agreement in principle on wage reductions, have fallen through on concerns about personal terms, such as whether they would be allowed to leave in the future.
Meanwhile a firestorm broke out after board director Dave King came out with a statement fearing liquidation is inevitable. He has also threatened a £20m lawsuit contending he invested cash in the club. His characterization was met with incredulity by former owner Sir David Murray, former director Paul Murray, and the present owner Craig Whyte, who are trying to work out the details of a CVA. There is a proposal by Paul Murray for a conditional takeover if an agreement is not thrashed out by March 16th.
The back and forth still leaves the future of Carlos Bocanegra, Maurice Edu, and Alejandro Bedoya very much in the balance.
