Bocanegra headed back to Rangers, for now

USA defender Carlos Bocanegra will be back with Glasgow Rangers Friday, but how long he stays is utterly unknown. The bankrupt club has been banned from playing in the Scottish Premier League this season and Bocanegra, who played in the Major League Baseball All-Star Game celebrity softball event in Kansas City Sunday, has much to figure out.

"I've got to explore my options," said Bocanegra, 33, who left MLS eight years ago and has since played in England and France as well as for the 54-time Scottish champion. "I need to speak with the coach, as well. We kept missing each other. It wouldn't be fair to speak out of turn if I haven't spoken to him yet."

Rangers coach Ally McCoist signed Bocanegra from Saint-Etienne last August. The 140-year-old club has tax debts of $32.7 million and after entering bankruptcy protection in February, was bought by a new company. It will be placed in one of the lower divisions and faces a mass exodus of players.

For his next club, MLS is among the options. He started with the Chicago Fire in 2000, is from Southern California, and has been targeted by Coach Jay Heaps of New England, which holds the top spot in the allocation order by which he would be required to return. He attended Kansas City's game Saturday night against Houston at Livestrong Sporting Park.
