Former Bolton target Gregg Wylde has become a free agent after being made redundant by Glasgow Rangers.

Wanderers saw a £400,000 offer for the Scotland under-21 international turned down last summer, with Rangers boss Ally McCoist making it clear that Wylde would not be leaving the club.

With the Scottish giants facing liquidation after going into administration last month, Wylde had volunteered to take redundancy on Monday, a move which has now been accepted by the club's administrators.

Speaking about his decision to leave Rangers, Wylde admits he made the offer in order to help other employees within the club.

"I volunteered to walk with no redundancy package today to help the other people in the club who have families, like the kitchen staff," Wylde told BBC Scotland.

"I offered to walk away yesterday and the club told me today that they would accept that offer.

"At the moment I have nowhere to go and I don't have another club.

"I don't know what is going to happen next but I thought it was important to play my part in saving Rangers."
