Rangers never called back - St Johnstone's Sandaza

St Johnstone striker Fran Sandaza has revealed that Rangers never called him back non transfer deadline day.

The Spaniard was a target for 'Gers earlier in January but reportedly turned down a pre-contract before the Glasgow giants came back with interest late in the winter window.

Sandaza said he spoke to Rangers officials during the day and was told he would receive a phone call back with further instructions……but that never came.

"I received a call from them yesterday at about five o'clock in the afternoon. We agreed about the terms more or less then they told me to wait 15 or 20 minutes. They said they would phone me back and tell me which flight I had to catch," he said yesterday.

"But no one called. I was waiting and waiting for the call but it didn't come and I realised I wasn't going to get the chance to go there and sign.

"I don't know what they were discussing but they decided not to sign me. Finally, after 10 o'clock the guy called and said they had decided not to sign anyone to replace Jelavic.

"I felt very let down because everyone would love to play for Rangers. But I am feeling better now. All I can do is focus on playing for St Johnstone for the rest of the season."
