Football: DON'T BLAME GERS FOR NICKING NOVO; It's Not Their Fault That Dundee Are Skint Says Duffy


Byline: By Euan McArthur

BOSS Jim Duffy last night urged Dundee fans not to hold any grudges over Nacho Novo's move to Rangers. Novo completed his pounds 450,000 move to Rangers after waiving his pounds 50,000 slice of the transfer fee with the Dens Park club demanding pounds 500,000.

He will undergo a medical over the next 24 hours and is expected to be paraded at Ibrox today.

Dundee fans have been angered at seeing Gavin Rae, Zurab Khizanishvili and Claudio Caniggia all leave their club for Rangers in cut-price deals.

He said: 'Our fans will have seen Gavin, Zurab and now Nacho all go to Rangers and that will no doubt leave a bitter taste in

their mouths.Butour financial situation is nothing to do with Rangers and they have made bids which have eventually been accepted.

'In Nacho's case, other teams for example Celtic and Leicester made offers but the player was adamant he wanted to go to Ibrox.'

Duffy knows the cash from Novo's transfer will be useful as they bid to come out of administration before the start of the season.

He said: 'The money is a benefit to Dundee as it will help keep the club alive.

'But we have lost a very good player and I know the fans will be unhappy to see him go as hewas a favourite here.'

Dundee chief executive Peter Marr is happy the speculation surrounding Novo is finally over.

Marr said:'It was Jim Duffy's decision to accept the offer from Rangers. It's never good losing a player of Nacho's calibre but we've got a decent deal.

'The last thing we wanted was to have an unhappy player at the club. Nacho is the kind of boy who just likes to play football and we've just got to get on with it.'

A Rangers spokesperson confirmed: 'The club has agreed terms with Dundee for Nacho Novo.

'However, over the next 24 hours the club has still to hold discussions with the player and arrange for a medical to take place.'

Dundee keeper Julian Speroni admits he's sad to say goodbye to close pal Novo. …
