Tore Andre Flo's agent, Gunnar Martin Kjenner, believes the Rangers striker will stay on at Ibrox next season.

The 28-year-old Norwegian international has been linked with several clubs over the past month, including Fulham, Tottenham, Aston Villa and the Italian club Parma. But Kjenner said Flo's future remains in Glasgow.

"There have been many stories in the Scottish press regarding Tore Andre, but they are simply not true," Kjenner declared. "Tore Andre has stopped reading them. No clubs have been in touch.

"Tore Andre has three years left of his contract in the summer and he's happy and feels great at the club. As far as I'm concerned, there's nothing indicating that he won't stay on at Rangers."

Flo cost Rangers £12m when he moved to Ibrox from Chelsea in November 2000 and has since hit 29 goals in 42 games for the Scottish Premier League club.

The St Johnstone midfielder Nick Dasovic has become the latest player to leave McDiar-mid Park after being told his contract will not be renewed. The Canadian international is one of the Perth side's longest-serving players, after spending six years at the club who now look certain to be playing in the Scottish First Division next season. Willie Falconer, Rachid Djebaili, Benito Kemble and Paul Kane have all left the club in the last week.

Aberdeen's manager Ebbe Skovdahl has appointed Darren Young as the new club captain. He replaces Derek Whyte, whose contract is set to expire in the summer with no agreement having yet been reached on a new deal.

The Hibernian striker David Zitelli, who had not started a game this year, has left the club after agreeing to have his contract cancelled early. The 33-year-old Frenchman was to become a free agent in the summer.

The Dundee midfielder Temuri Ketsbaia may have played his last game for the club after being injured on international duty.

Dundee have been told the player, signed from Wolves in October on a short-term deal, will miss the rest of the season after damaging knee ligaments in Georgia's 4-1 win over South Africa last week. The 34-year-old is set to have an operation in Greece this week and will therefore have to sit out the final five games of the season.
