Dodds set for Rangers move

Rangers are understood to have agreed a 1.3m fee with Dundee United for Scotland striker Billy Dodds.

Dodds, who joined United from Aberdeen 15 months ago, has hit 11 goals this season and impressed in the Euro 2000 play-offs with England.

Rangers are desperate for extra firepower because of an injury crisis surrounding their strikers.

Michael Mols, Rod Wallace, Gabriel Amato and Jonatan Johansson are all currently on the treatment table at Ibrox.




Hannah sorry for push on ref

Dundee United midfielder David Hannah has apologised for pushing referee Dougie McDonald in Wednesday's CIS Insurance Cup tie against Motherwell at Tannadice.

The former Celtic man was red-carded for the incident and is now waiting to learn what action the Scottish Football Association decide on.

Hannah said: "I feel very remorseful and I have to accept full responsibility for doing what I did. It was very silly.

"The moment I did it I realised how silly I had been. I though to myself: `Oh no, what have I done?'. It was an act of sheer stupidity.

"I should have walked over to the referee straight away and said sorry, but I was so worked up with myself that I couldn't.

"I didn't just let myself down but the rest of the players too. Anyone who knows me will realise I'm not the type of character to do this."




Awards for O'Neill and Hyypia

Leicester City manager Martin O'Neill has been named Carling manager of the month for November.

O'Neill has won the manager's award - his third such award - for taking his unfashionable side to fifth place in the Premiership.

Liverpool central defender Sami Hyypia was honoured as Carling's player of the month.

Finnish star Hyypia, who joined Liverpool from Willem II in the summer, has picked up his accolade on the back of four impressive performances in a revitalised Liverpool side.




Cruyff: I don't know where I'm going

Jordi Cruyff has dismissed claims that he is leaving Manchester United next summer on a free transfer and says he remains uncertain about his future.

Cruyff claimed he was amazed to read last weekend that he had made a decision about his plans.

"I don't understand where the story came from. I haven't been speaking to anyone," he said.

"I will take everything as I comes. I don't know what my future is. I am concentrating on this season."
