Kilmarnock target Rangers’ Marius Zaliukas


With a glut of new defensive
players at Ibrox, Kilmarnock have reportedly targeted Lithuanian stopper Marius
Zaliukas to join their growing band of the “Released Eleven” at Rugby Park.
The international defender and
former Hearts captain has never truly been in favour at any time of his stay in
Govan, and while rarely being awful, has likewise seldom been subject to much praise
Zaliukas is out of contract next
summer, but is likely to be out of favour under new manager Mark Warburton, who
himself already implied both Zaliukas and Darren McGregor were now more squad
depth than first-team starters.

This may have been evidenced by
the starting XI on Tuesday night in the first serious test for Warburton’s
If Kilmarnock are to make a move
for the former Leeds defender centre back, it
would not only cost them (a fairly nominal amount), but they most likely would
require to sell a couple of existing players to fund the bid.
As an aside, one wonders if Kilmarnock fans are ready to turn on manager Gary Locke
should their side struggle this upcoming season, such is the glut of players
deemed surplus at Ibrox that they have taken in.
Zaliukas would take that total to


  1. Give them Clark, law, Miller,and they can have Dave king too for free but chance would be fine thing

  2. So long as they are willing to pay money for Zaliukas I would let him go although I suspect that he will be a better player under Warburton than he ever was under the previous management team. Indeed I suspect that we will see the guys that have already signed for Kilmarnock perform better under Locke since McCoist was totally and utterly clueless as a coach and the less said about his side kick, McDowall, the better. He should never ever have been at Rangers.

  3. Are those we got in any better than what we have?wage bill is much higher but on the field they could be rank rotten,wigan where a good team 4 years ago but look where they are now and those players must take some blame for that,now we got the crap here,it looks that way scottish football may be there wake up call as there is no where to hide as you get your welcome to our game for men only.

  4. I dont think he will play any better for Warbs than he did under Ally
    I have seen him play for his International team SH*TE
    I have seen him play for hearts SH*TE
    I have seen him play for Leeds SH*TE
    And some of the woeful performances he has put in for us deary me so its time to show him the door & any money we get will be a bonus!!
