Kerkar goes on a mission

RANGERS are hoping to move towards the completion of a deal to sign Salim Kerkar after the player decided to drive things on himself.

Kerkar has been training with Rangers since August and has featured in closed door matches where he has impressed the coaching staff.

The 23-year-old last played for Guegnon in the French top division and did not have his contract renewed at the end of last season.

Rangers can sign him outside of the closure of the transfer window as he is a free agent.

However, the club has had difficulty in sourcing some important information from Guegnon and now Kerkar is heading back to his old club to try to sort things out.

Assistant boss Ally McCoist said: "Salim is going over to see his old club to try to move things on because we have so far been unable to get things finalised.

"We have been seeking some confirmation from them on a couple of issues but have not had the information we need.

"So he will head back there to try to get things moving and then come back and join the training again and hopefully we can get a deal done.

"He is a lad who is shaping up well. He is a nice lad but more importantly he has a god left foot and I think our fans will enjoy seeing him."

At the time of going to press there were a few Rangers players liable to miss international action.

Lee McCulloch, Allan McGregor and Kirk Broadfoot were all doubts for Scotland while Nikica Jelavic went to Croatia with a knee knock from Saturday's Hearts game.

Why did Jelavic go to Croatia with a knee knock if he's having ankle surgery?

I know. I think it was maybe written a couple of days ago when it seemed like folk were thinking that was what it was.

Is Jela not away back to Croatia for the surgery?

However, there is the possibilty he could be sidelined for anywhere between three and four months should the ankle take time to heal and regain full power.

“It’s hard to say exactly right now,” a senior Rangers source told SportTimes. “When the ankle settles down after the operation, it will be easier to put a timescale on it.”

Croatian FA doctor Juris Rakic said: “It’s impossible at this time to say how long he will be absent for.

“It depends on how things settle, and how quickly he is capable of getting strength back in the area that was damaged.”

Got Treated by croatian doctor yesterday i think

It's irrelevant where a player formerly played, it's what they do for us that counts, some big name players from big clubs have crashed and burned when coming here and you have players from smaller clubs who make an impact, Naismith from Kilmarnock :sherlock:

As for Salim, he has been on trial with us for a while and training with us so the management team will have had the chance to have a good look at him and remember initially it is only going to be a short term deal and if he performs then he earns himself a longer deal.

For all we know he might become an Ibrox legend.
