Carlos Bocanegra: American heading home after ending Rangers spell

United States international Bocanegra spent last season on loan at Racing Santander while Goian played for Spezia in Italy's Serie B, as the liquidated Ibrox side looked to reduce their wage bill as they began life in the Third Division.

Bocanegra, 34, is expected to move back to his homeland to join a Major League Soccer club.

Romanian Goian, 32, is now looking to earn a contract with a side in England.

"After discussions in the last few days, both men are now free to pursue their careers elsewhere having terminated their deals in Glasgow a year early," read a Rangers statement.

Former Gers captain Bocanegra made 40 appearances for the club, scoring three times.

Goian turned out 41 times in a Rangers shirt, with his only goal in the 3-2 League Cup defeat to Falkirk in 2011.

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
