Nacho a Tasty Treat as McLeish Relishes Clash with Dundee


Byline: PETER JARDINE

NACHO NOVO appears in an Ibrox transfer window today, with the Dundee forward a leading candidate to replace the unwanted Nuno Capucho.

Rangers manager Alex McLeish confirmed his admiration for the 22-goal Dens striker yesterday - but would not divulge if the interest will be followed up in the summer.

The ongoing Ibrox revolution means as many as nine players could leave Govan and, if Novo shakes off an injury, he will hope to impress and add to a goal he scored at Ibrox earlier in the season.

'Novo is a good player and he is definitely someone we have run the rule over - as we have with a lot of players in the SPL,' said McLeish, who welcomes back Steven Thompson.

'We haven't made the plunge on anyone except Gavin (Rae) and I won't be drawn on speculation.

We will tell fans when something is a done deal.

'It would be nice to get maximum points from these next three games at Ibrox. We have shown our intentions with Jean-Alain Boumsong coming - and there will be other changes.

'Season ticket-holders want to see victories and also what is coming through under the firstteam. We are out looking at games and signing targets.

We would prefer to have new players in for preseason.

'I am working within parameters. The Alex McLeish wish-list is maybe not the wish-list within the parameters, but if we get close to it, then we'd go into next season with confidence.

'I am fully aware of the club's financial parameters and always have been.

I just want to make sure we have cover in every position - I'd like twotimes 11 and maybe a couple of others, as well.
