THE English Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) yesterday issued a warning to players thinking about a move to the territory. PFA executive officer Mick McGuire said he had received complaints from players who walked out of Hong Kong League club Rangers last month before the new season had even kicked off. McGuire said it was his job to advise players thinking of making a move to the club to be on their guard. Gary Bannister, Mark Blake, Mark Walton and Bobby Barnes all left Rangers and McGuire said any player wishing to play abroad was at risk as they were not protected by the same safeguards as Britain. 'We know Hong Kong Rangers are having problems and I would have to tell players here wishing to join them that this club has had problems in the past. 'We don't know whether these problems are justified. Rangers are not on our blacklist. It's the player's decision whether they want to join the club or not.' Rangers, beaten 2-0 by newly-promoted Frankwell in their first game of the season, might have to look outside Britain for replacements. Only Welsh defender Steve O'Shaughnessy remains from Rangers' six close-season signings with former South China and Instant-Dict striker Marko Perinovic the latest to join the exodus. Meanwhile, top striker Peter Davenport may soon be on his way to Hong Kong. The Englishman, who had spells with Manchester United, Nottingham Forest and Sunderland before plying his trade in Scotland, is high on the wanted list of new club Golden. Davenport, 33, however, has signed a one-year deal with Scottish League First Division club St Johnstone after previous attempts to come to Hong Kong fell flat. Kui Tan offered him terms at the beginning of the season but a wrangle over accommodation saw the striker stay in Britain. He was also disillusioned by the treatment Rangers meted out to their British imports. Golden are ready to offer suitable accommodation and wages to get their man. Davenport said: 'I am on a one-year contract at St Johnstone but it is an open secret we have not had a great start in the league and that the boss [Paul Sturrock] is looking to sign new strikers. Singapore's national team will play friendly matches against Eastern, Instant-Dict and Rangers in Hong Kong on October 7, 8 and 11 respectively. The Vietnamese selection team defeated Hong Kong First Division club Golden 4-3 in a penalty shoot-out after scores were level at 1-1 after normal time at Mongkok Stadium last night. Player-coach Carlton Fairweather equalised in the 38th minute after Truong Van Duong had opened the scoring after three minutes.
