26 January 2010 10:02
It was reported recently that both Fleck and fellow youngster Danny Wilson had rejected new deals with the Scottish champions.[LNB]At the time, Walter Smith expressed concerns that the pair, both 18, were putting the prospect of lucrative moves to England before their careers.[LNB]However, the Rangers boss has revealed that Fleck was unaware negotiations were even taking place on his behalf and has now instructed his representative to resume talks.[LNB]Smith said: "The players have the same agent and we have found out in John's case that there has been a slight misunderstanding between the representative and the club.[LNB]"John wasn't fully aware his agent was negotiating a contract and the negative press was a little hard on him.[LNB]"It was reported he had turned down the contract when he actually hadn't, so negotiations are now taking place."[LNB]Speaking on Blues News, Smith added: "Danny's situation remains the same but John is getting an opportunity to play and we are delighted with him, so hopefully something can happen."[LNB]Meanwhile, Jerome Rothen has claimed his ill-fated loan spell at Rangers was the result of comments he made about Paris Saint-Germain directors Sebastien Bazin and Alain Roche in a newspaper interview last June.[LNB]He has been back in France recovering from swine flu and has not featured for the Ibrox side since the 4-1 defeat to Unirea Urziceni in October.[LNB]Rothen is now set to join Turkish side Ankaragucu until the end of the season.[LNB]He told the Daily Record: "Sometimes, I've learned, it's better to keep your mouth shut.[LNB]"But after I said my piece it would have served no purpose for me to stay at PSG. I would have spent the season playing in the amateur league.[LNB]"I made the choice to go to Glasgow but in reflection it wasn't a good choice.[LNB]"This winter PSG made it indirectly clear to me I couldn't go back so I've found a solution until the end of the season."[LNB][LNB]
