St Johnstone's Sandaza feels Rangers trying to get him on the cheap

St Johnstone striker Francisco Sandaza decided to turn down a move to Rangers because he feels they do not value him highly enough.

The Spanish star, who comes out of contract at the end of the season, was offered a pre-contract by the reigning Scottish champions who wanted to pay him around £5,000 a week but he feels that he is worth more.

"Why did I say no to Rangers? Honestly, I don't think they value me highly enough. They are trying to get me cheaply," he said.

"It's a big club and there's no doubt every player would love to play for them.

"I think that if I played for Rangers, every season I would score 25 goals or more - easily. So they have to value me properly.

"However, they have not done this with me in the pre-contract offer.

"That is why I am now waiting and focusing on scoring many goals in this league with St Johnstone. I'm feeling good on the pitch.

"I'm not thinking I'm Billy big time and I'm not making out that I am the best. I am working hard, I am humble."
