Cult-hero Igor finds his new club

Former Liverpool star Igor Biscan has found himself a new club after being released by Liverpool in the summer.
The Croatian has joined Greek side Panathinaikos, turning down a late offer from Spartak Moscow. Biscan had also been linked with a move to Turkey, but has settled on a three-year deal in Greece.

Igor was signed by Gerard Houllier, and found himself rarely used by the Frenchman, and towards the end of the Houllier reign being used out of position in central defence. After the arrival of Rafa Benitez the player got to make some appearances in his favoured midfield role, where he certainly impressed people with the improvement he’d made.

Despite his good showing though the Reds cult hero could not get himself a suitable contract extension and his four and a half year Anfield career came to an end. With the signing of Zenden and Sissoko to join Gerrard, Alonso and Hamman as Reds midfielders, Biscan may well have found his first team chances more limited than ever.

Should Igor return to Anfield again in the future to play against the Reds he can be sure of a warm reception from the fans.

We wish Igor luck on his Greek adventure.
