Rangers' Bocanegra: I won't take another pay cut

Rangers defender Carlos Bocanegra has made it clear that he will not be making any more financial sacrifices for the club.

The Ibrox outfit are still in administration and nobody is the wiser as to what is happening with the proposed takeover. Bocanegra, who joined from Saint-Etienne in August 2011, says the uncertainty has gone on long enough and has insisted that he will not be giving up anymore of his wages to help.

"I won't take another pay cut. Hopefully it will all be sorted out," Bocanegra told the Daily Record.

"That was a big decision for all the players to take. It wasn't just me. Everybody made a sacrifice and losing 10 points for going into administration knocked the wind out of us.

"Obviously you join a club expecting a guaranteed contract. Then you have to change it and that's an unfortunate circumstance.

"That part is frustrating but you have got to get on with it and luckily it was a short time, three months.

"So hopefully it is all sorted by mid-June and we can move forward and put that behind us.

"Apparently a consortium is buying the club so as long as they are not asking us again to take pay cuts I have no reason to want to leave.

"I don't regret coming, because I am really enjoying the club."
