Playing in Scotland for Rangers was very boring, says Salenko

THE former Rangers striker Oleg Salenko has admitted he wasted his career at Ibrox.

Salenko, who signed from Valencia for £2.5m carrying an injury was ditched in a swap deal with Istanbulspor for Peter van Vossen after six months. Now a coach for the Ukraine FA, he says he hated his time in Scotland. "I signed only because I believed they had a chance of winning the Champions League. But it [the Scottish League] was very boring. The standard of was very low, especially compared with Spain. What made it worse was that you had to play the same teams four times. The only games that were interesting were the matches against Celtic - that was a battle for life or death."
