Former Rangers and Leeds United defender Marius Zaliukas finally finds a new club after six months

Rangers Gates

The Lithuanian international has been without a club since August.

Rangers and Leeds United fans will have mixed feelings about their former player Marius Zaliukas.

The Lithuanian defender first headed to the UK with a move to Hearts, where he excelled in Scottish football.

The centre-back then joined up with Leeds in 2013 where he first impressed under Brian McDermott. However his form dramatically dipped and Leeds released him in June 2014.

He headed back to Scotland, joining Rangers in July 2014 and continued to be a regular in the Lithuania national team and put in some good performances at the club.

However his British adventure was seemingly ended when Rangers released him in August 2015.

Since then the former Rangers and Leeds player has not had a club - until today.

After six months without a club the 32-year-old finally has new employment - joining Zalgiris in his homeland - as revealed on their Twitter account:

Now the former Leeds and Rangers man will need to prove that his six months out of the game have not diluted his talents - as he could prove a real hit back in his own backyard.
