Skipper Ochieng quits Rangers



Rangers’ inspirational captain Pascal Ochieng has left the club citing frustration and lack of sincerity from team officials led by chairman Yobes Ongeri.

Ochieng who has been has been missing in action for a fortnight told SuperSport.com that he would hand in his resignation letter to the club chairman on Thursday morning.

He castigated the chairman and and patron Sam Nyamweya accusing him of messing up with the club by refusing to pay players their accrued salaries.

"I have decided to call it quits as a Rangers player since the officials led by the chairman are not serious and have been duping the players and them and their families to suffer."

"It is a sad affair because some people have decided to enrich themselves and yet the players continue to suffer. Personally I cannot take it anymore and am prepared to take time off until the transfer window in June," Ochieng said.

"We have been patient enough and as captain I have grown tired of the lies from officials who have jeopardized all plans for willing sponsors to come onboard due to their greedy behaviour," he added.

Ochieng also alleged that the officials had forged his contract by extending it to 2013 and yet it was to end in 2012 April and called on the Kenyan Premier League to investigate.

Rangers chairman Yobesh Ongeri however refuted Ochieng's claims stating that he was waiting for the letter before responding.

"I am waiting for Pascal's letter and if anything I am the one who should be giving him a letter since he has been inciting other players and yet he is the captain. If he had any issues he should have written to the KPL but instead he has resorted to other tactics and yet he is part of the problem he is talking about."
