Decision time for Raith duo.
Iain Munro revealed yesterday that Raith Rovers will not go into debt to keep Kent Bergersen and Tony Rougier.
Norwegian Bergersen and Celtic target Rougier will decide this week whether or not they wish to stay.
Both have been offered final new deals by Munro.
But yesterday the Stark's Park boss explained to fans that the club would not break the bank to keep the players.
He said: "We can't just offer individuals anything they want."
Munro refuses to break standing wage agreements to sign them up for longer.
Bergersen recently signed a short contract to enable him to continue, while Trinidadian Rougier has been offered a two-and-a-half-year extension to his contract which runs out at the end of this season.
Bergerson, 29, has been outstanding since joining the club six weeks ago.
But he is attracting the interest of two Norwegian sides, and is likely to go home when his contract expires.
Meanwhile, the deadlock between pounds 450,000-rated Rougier and Raith drags on.
Munro said: "I've made him a more than reasonable offer and there is no personal cash advantage for him to move."
