Rangers fans will have to wait for more than a week to discover if the Spanish striker Raul Tamudo is to join the Ibrox club.

Rangers fans will have to wait for more than a week to discover if the Spanish striker Raul Tamudo is to join the Ibrox club.

The 23-year-old Espanyol forward was due in Glasgow yesterday for a medical but Rangers have admitted that although the deal has been agreed in principle it is still days off completion.

Terms have been agreed with the Spanish club but these are subject to the outcome of the review of the transfer system currently being carried out by the European Commission. If it concludes that the existing transfer system is to carry on, then Rangers are understood to be willing to pay £11m for the striker.

The Rangers striker Michael Mols may need a third knee operation to save his career. The Dutchman's comeback from a cruciate ligament injury almost a year ago has been put on hold following a build-up of fluid.

"It's the last option because I wouldn't want to think about the consequences of another operation on my knee," said Mols. "I'm very worried. That would mean another long spell recovering and mentally that would be very tough to accept."

Dundee's Premier League clash at Dunfermline next Saturday will be televised live in South America. Dundee's signing of the Argentinian Claudio Caniggia has sparked massive interest in his homeland and the game will be broadcast by ESPN International.

Fans in South and Central America, as well as the West Indies and Australia, will be able to tune into the action.
