Adamczuk leaves Rangers
Dariusz Adamczuk in a rare appearance for Rangers
Dariusz Adamczuk had been suffering from depression
Former Poland international Dariusz Adamczuk has ended his nightmare time at Rangers.

But 22-year-old defender Bob Malcolm has vowed to stay on at Ibrox and fight for his place.

Adamczuk had not played for Rangers since November 2000 and had recently been diagnosed with depression.

And Rangers have confirmed that the midfielder's contract was terminated on 30 October, 10 days after his 33rd birthday.


It was never in my mind to leave
Rangers defender Bob Malcolm
Adamczuk and Rangers are said to have come to a mutual agreement.

Celtic had also been interested in the player when Dick Advocaat brought him to Ibrox from Dundee in 1999.

However, he only made 13 starts and went on loan during 2001 to Wigan Athletic, where he made four appearances.

Malcolm had been a target for Dundee United at the end of last season, but the transfer fell through.

He has this season made a number of starts due to injuries to first-choice central defenders Lorenzo Amoruso and Craig Moore.

Malcolm told Rangers' website: "It wasn't really on to go to United and it was never in my mind to leave anyway.

"The manager had just come to the club and I thought I would stay until the end of the season and try my hardest to make an impression.

"The boss has been a big influence. His man-to-man management skills have been brilliant and he will take you aside to speak to you on certain things.

"I wanted a chance to show him what I could do and it has turned out quite well.

"I am always trying to improve my game even though I know that Craig and Amo will always be first-choice for those positions."
