Rangers forward Nacho Novo will join Sporting Gijon

Novo joined Rangers from Dundee in 2004

Striker Nacho Novo is to leave Rangers after six years to join Sporting Gijon in his native Spain, where he has agreed a two-year contract.

The 31-year-old turned down a new contract with the Scottish champions, having joined them from Dundee in 2004.

Novo scored nine times this season and was mainly used as a substitute, only starting 14 league games.

He notched 72 goals in 253 appearances - almost half of which came from the bench - during his time at Ibrox.

Novo, who has also played for Huesca and Raith Rovers, will now return to his homeland with Sporting, who finished 15th in La Liga this season.


He won three Scottish Premier League titles, one Scottish Cup and two League Cups during his time with Rangers.

Novo also becomes the third senior player to leave Ibrox this summer, following DaMarcus Beasley and Steven Smith.
