Rothen Luck in Bid to Offload Jerome; PSG Rule out Return for Ibrox Loan Flop


Byline: BY EWAN SMITH

RANGERS could be hit with a [pounds sterling]350,000 bill to offload winger Jerome Rothen next month -- and face being forced to hang on to the French flop until the summer.

Rothen has made it clear he wants to rip up his loan deal with the Ibrox side five months early, after falling out of favour with manager Walter Smith.

But, despite a desperate plea by Rothen to Paris Saint Germain sporting director Alain Roche for a return to France, the Les Bleus international has been told he must stay in Scotland.

PSG are keen to wash their hands of Rothen, who has 18 months left on his hefty [pounds sterling]36,000-a-week deal with the Parisian side.

The 31-year-old no longer figures in the plans of manager Antoine Kombouare and the French club have told Rothen that he must stay with the Ibrox club.

A PSG spokesperson said: 'Jerome has an arrangement with Rangers until the end of the season and the terms have not changed.

'If the player wishes to leave Ibrox or the club no longer want him, then that is a concern for Jerome and Rangers, not us.' When asked if he would take Rothen back, manager Kombouare, a former Aberdeen defender, said: 'The player wants to leave PSG and, as far as I know, he's still with Rangers.' That leaves the Ibrox club, who are [pounds sterling]31million in the red, with a black hole in their finances over the winger, who played in the 2004 Champions League Final for Monaco against Porto.

Rothen is one of the highest earners at PSG, with only Claude Makelele, Ludovic Giuly and Mateja Kezman on better contracts than him.
