Faubert goes on strike

Published Add your comment

Julien Faubert has refused to train with Bordeaux as he puts pressure on the French club to sell him to Rangers.

The 23-year-old, who can also play in defence, is a confirmed Rangers target but a stumbling block to the deal is Bordeaux´s valuation of the France international - they have started negotiations at £10million, and Rangers will only pay a fraction of that price.

His agent, Philippe Sol, said: "He made it clear his only intention is to leave, and he wants Bordeaux to do a deal with Rangers. Bordeaux are refusing to do that at the moment so Julien has taken the decision not to train to make his feelings clear."
