Rangers call for decision over Cousin's Fulham move

Rangers manager Walter Smith has urged FIFA to decide on the future of Daniel Cousin as the transfer saga dragged into its fifth week.

Cousin, 31, agreed a £3m move to Fulham during the January transfer window but has already played for two teams this season and may not be allowed to feature for a third. FIFA rules only permit a player to play for a two teams in a season, but a high-profile exception was made for Liverpool midfielder Javier Mascherano who had already played for both Corinthians and West Ham.

"Surely they are going to have to make a decision this week," said Smith. "It's not a difficult decision to make - they either say yes or no and then we all get on with it."

Cousin scored in Sunday's 4-2 victory over Gretna but is understood to be keen for FIFA to rubber-stamp his move to the Premiership.
