Dorin Goian received just short of £430,000 after agreeing to have his Rangers contract terminated last week.

The Romanian, who left Ibrox alongside fellow defender Carlos Bocanegra, still had a year to run on a £8200-a-week deal and has had those wages paid up in full as a stipulation of cutting short his time at the Glasgow club.

The 32-year-old spent last season on loan at Italian club Spezia and has since attracted interest from clubs in England and Turkey. Goian has ruled out a return to former club Steaua Bucharest this summer, while his agent, Florin Manea, has praised Rangers for ensuring that the defender's pursuit of a new club has been untroubled by his release.

"Everything was done by phone and fax," said Manea. "The Scots have sent money for the last year of Dorin's contract: €500,000."
