Rangers manager Alex McLeish has backed Ronald Waterreus after the goalkeeper was quoted in a newspaper as being critical of his team-mates.
Ronald Waterreus says he rejected Le Guen's plea to stay
The 35-year-old was alleged to have accused key players of deliberately disobeying McLeish this season.
But McLeish, who stood by Waterreus for the game against Motherwell, said: "His remarks were totally mistranslated.
"I've been told by the club lawyers not to discuss it, but some of what he was said to have said was not the case."
An interview with Dutch magazine Voetbal International was published in Scotland by The Sun.
And Waterreus was quoted as being critical of the club for not giving McLeish the money likely to be available to incoming manager Paul Le Guen.
Waterreus was also alleged to have said that he was looking forward to leaving the club in the summer, despite claiming that Le Guen had wanted him to remain at Ibrox.
The comments led to the goalkeeper being booed by a section of the Rangers support at the start of Saturday's game against Motherwell.
But the jeers turned cheers after the Dutchman put in a fine performance in a 1-0 victory.
"He stood up and he was counted," said McLeish.
"It must have been difficult for him, but he showed his professionalism and he's had a solid game.
"I'm pleased that he's shown a lot of character.
"Fans don't like what they read, but I'm not at liberty to speak about this because it's in the hands of the club's lawyers.
"They have felt they have read something that has done Ronald a disservice to be honest because we have seen the Dutch transcript."
Striker Dado Prso said there were was no ill-feeling from his team-mates.
"I don't think anyone had a problem with him," said the Croat.
"If Ronald had something to say to someone, he would say it to their face. Not like this."
