The Rangers defender Lorenzo Amoruso has hinted at the possibility of a transfer from Ibrox after having the club captaincy taken away from him. The Scotland international Barry Ferguson took over the armband for Tuesday night's 2-0 victory over Dundee United in the CIS Insurance Cup.

Amoruso rejected a move to Sunderland in the summer after the arrivals of Bert Konterman and Paul Ritchie, who has since moved on to Manchester City. Despite still playing in the defeat of Dundee United, the Italian admits that he must now think over his position at the club.

"It's difficult to talk about the future now but, of course, it's a situation I will have to think about," Amoruso said.

"Things have changed for me already at the club after what happened in the summer and now all this is going on. I'll have to consider everything. But it's too early now to say what will happen. I just want to try to help the club."

"I can consider my future later. If I leave, then I will leave at the end of the season."

The projected return to action of the Aberdeen youngster Russell Anderson has suffered a setback after the Scotland Under-21 international broke down in training. The defender, who last played in the Scottish Cup final in May, has twisted his knee and will have a scan as a precautionary measure.

"As Russell is coming back from a serious ligament injury, every precaution is being taken," a club spokesman said.

"He has been sent for a scan on his knee and will undergo a thorough examination. But there is no way of telling what damage has been done until the swelling has gone down."

Aberdeen's recently appointed chief executive, Dave Cormack, has revealed that the club are endeavouring to bring new players to Pittodrie. But he also admitted that the club's manager, Ebbe Skovdahl, is finding it increasingly difficult to bring in players who do not simply constitute a "short-term fix".

The former Scotland international Tosh McKinlay has admitted he has taken "a gamble" by asking for a free transfer from Kilmarnock. The 35-year-old believes that he needs to prove himself after being kept on the sidelines at Rugby Park this season.

"I could sit out my contract until the end of the season but I like to move on if things aren't working," he said.
