Rangers have made an enquiry about signing the Ipswich Town striker Pablo Counago, according to his club manager, Joe Royle.

The Spaniard has yet to start a league game for the Championship club this season and was taken off at half-time in Tuesday night's 2-0 Carling Cup win over Brentford.

The former forward at Celta Vigo has been told he can leave on a free transfer and the Rangers manager, Alex McLeish, has registered an interest. Royle said: "We have had an enquiry from Rangers about Pablo but there has been no follow up. With the transfer deadline only seven days away, we will know if there is serious interest very soon."

Counago, 25, has scored 33 goals for Ipswich in 64 starts in all competitions since arriving on a free transfer from Celta Vigo in the summer of 2001.

A creative midfielder remains McLeish's top priority and the former Coventry and Aston Villa player Mustapha Hadji played in a private trial match earlier in the week.
