Want to point out that I have no expertise in this area. I'm trying to learn.
I'd also imagine that the Rangers & Celtic wages are much different from the rest of Scotland. I'd also imagine that their top players like Bocanegra, etc. would get paid a lot more. But that is not based on fact, rather my assumption. I'm willing to learn on this one.
Boca was also in France's Lige 1 and I don't think he's take a major pay cut to play in Scotland. I could be wrong. I'd just love to know the facts.
Ah, those numbers look right just the conversion was off, your link shows championship average at $330,722 USD
Rangers likes American players because they're economical, I wouldn't expect Boca to be one of the higher paid players. I'll see if I can find the old bigsoccer thread, it had a great breakdown that compared individual SPL and championship teams against eachother.
But anecdotally, what does everyone think we're going to pay Palsson? Started the whole season for Hibs, Pool reserve player, only 21... maybe 100k? And then this Robson guy... 33.. played mostly for Dundee and Iverness, never caught on at Celtic, and now plays for Middlesborough... he's a DP?
