West Brom signing Scharner rates Wigan relegation certs

New West Bromwich Albion signing Paul Scharner believes former club Wigan Athletic are relegation certs.

The 30-year-old ­Austrian star sealed a free ­transfer move to West Brom on deadline day after being axed by Wigan in June.

Scharner said: "I fear the squad left does not have enough experience this time.

"I hope I am wrong and that both they and my new club stay up, but it will be very tough.

"Mr Whelan's dream was to bring up a club into the ­Premier League.

"That target has been reached now and I don't think there is another ­target or goal to go for."
