Gers duo to stay put

20 June 2007 12:54
Rangers duo Sasa Papac and Thomas Buffel have pledged their immediate futures to the Ibrox club. Bosnia defender Papac had been wanted by French side St Etienne, but the 27-year-old has vowed to remain in Glasgow and prove his worth, having struggled since his arrival from Austria Vienna a year ago. He told the club's official website: "I am under contract at Rangers until June 2009. St Etienne doesn't interest me." Meanwhile, Belgian forward Buffel is hoping to impress after battling to overcome a serious knee injury. He commented: "I had a conversation with the manager and he counts on me for next season. However, if I improve and the club gets a good transfer fee I could go. "But I'm satisfied with my recovery and believe Rangers will discover a new player."
