Rangers have sacked striker Fran Sandaza after he was found guilty of holding a conversation with somebody professing to be a player agent.
The Spaniard spoke with the fake agent with quotes being published online regarding interest from MLS clubs but it was all a hoax and the 28-year old has now been ousted by 'Gers for his part in the proposed swindle.
"Francisco spoke at length to someone posing as an agent and engaged in a conversation which the club believes to be a material breach of his contract of employment.
"The player was suspended but, after careful consideration and a hearing with Francisco and his representatives, the club, and our advisors, believe that dismissal is the appropriate course of action.
"The termination is subject to the right of appeal under SFL rules and there will be no further comment from Rangers on this issue."
