BORIS Pandza last night revealed he hopes to become Rangers’ ninth summer signing in the next few days.
The 26-year-old Bosnian defender has been named in their squad for their crucial World Cup qualifier against Slovakia, despite not having a club.
And although Pandza admitted he has become frustrated by Rangers’ inability to tie up the deal, he is confident he will finally become an Ibrox player this week ahead of the international gathering.
He said: “I hope the contract is signed before the training camp with Bosnia starts.
“The truth is, this is taking too long, but I believe everything will be sorted out in the next couple of days.
“I’ve had many calls and discussions with different clubs, so I am not going to talk about which ones until after the deal is signed.
“I have to concentrate on playing with the national team, especially since I was surprised to be called up.
“The manager, Safet Susis, said he wouldn’t be calling anyone into the squad who didn’t have a club.
“So I was really delighted when he called me up for the match.
“Physically, I feel good and I’m ready to contribute if the coach decides that he needs me.
“If we want to go to Brazil, these are the games that we should be winning.
“We are favourites and we have no fear because our team are playing well.”
Rangers have already signed Jon Daly, Nicky Law, Nicky Clark, Cammy Bell, Richard Foster, Stevie Smith, Arnold Peralta and Bilel Mohsni this summer.
