Nigeria Professional Football League side Rangers International have confirmed a massive clear out of unproductive players in their fold as the Coal City Flying Antelopes shift focus to the 2019/2020 domestic and continental campaigns.
Rangers issued a statement on Monday announcing the retention of 22 players ahead the coming season.
Although the 2018 Aiteo Cup champions were not forthcoming on the number of players shown the exit door in the current clear out exercise, there are suggestions that no fewer than 23 players were eased out following inside sources’ revelation that the club has no less than 45 players on their roaster.
The Rangers boss added that the club have held successful transfer talks with new players with whom they intend to bolster the squad.
Rangers ended the 2018/2019 NPFL abridged season on third position at the end of the championship play-offs to seal a ticket to the 2019/2020 CAF Confederation Cup campaign.
