Glasgow Rangers enter administration, could Carlos Bocanegra enter MLS?

"They owe Dundee United HOW MUCH money!?"
"They owe Dundee United HOW MUCH money!?"

If you haven't heard yet, Scottish Premier League's Glasgow Rangers -- one of, you know, the two teams anyone knows the name of in the SPL -- have filed court papers and could enter Administration in the next ten days thanks to a £50 million tax bill. Bad news for fans of the club, but intriguing news for those of us who follow MLS and specifically the USMNT's team captain, Carlos Bocanegra.

It's obviously just a flyer of a rumor and there's always a chance that Rangers escape administration but there's a chance that our captain could come to his home league and play out the rest of his career at the level where he started.

Carlos played over 80 appearances for the Chicago Fire back in 2000-2004 and has 100 caps to his name with the national squad, so he's got connections. At age 32, getting back here after a good career with big clubs like Fulham and Rangers could have been in the cards later, but sooner if Rangers can't afford him any more.

What say you, Rapids fans? Would you like to see Bocanegra standing tall in our back line, perhaps as the club's first ever Designated Player? If this is Pablo Mastroeni's final year with the club, could you think of many other people you'd prefer to take the captain's role over Captain America himself?
