Zaliukas is on way home to Zalgiris.

Byline: JOHN GARDNER sport@dailyrecord.co.uk

MARIUS ZALIUKAS has finally found a new club after more than six months out of football for the former Hearts and Rangers defender.

The 32-year-old has signed for Lithuanian champions Zalgiris Vilnius after failing to find a UK home.

Zaliukas featured for Rangers this season under Mark Warburton in a pre-season friendly against Burnley but was quickly shipped out by mutual consent.

Now he'll team up with ex-Tynecastle team-mate Saulius Mikoliunas at Zalgiris who are targeting the Champions League.

Sporting director Mindaugas Nikoli said: "Marius will be a big signing for us and remains one of the best Lithuanian players."

Just two of the 13 players released by Rangers since the summer have yet to find a club with keeper Lee Robinson and French defender Sebastian Faure still unattached.
