FOOTBALL: Gers in for Celt-snub ace Dazza.

RANGERS are ready to swoop on Polish midfielder Dariusz Adamczuk following his snub to Celtic.

It was believed the 29-year-old World Cup player, on freedom of contract from Dundee, would be off to England's Premiership or the Continent following his failure to agree a contract at Celtic Park.

But Rangers, who had previously shown an interest in the player, are now ready to move again.

Asked if he was still interested, Rangers' coach Dick Advocaat replied: "The chance is still there!"

Adamczuk, who has been three seasons with Dundee since moving from Pogon Stettin, has made it clear that he is happy in Scotland and would prefer to continue his career here.

He has already had offers from Germany and England, and says: "Now I just have to wait and see what happens."

Venglos had ear-marked the Polish player as one he wanted for next season to strengthen his squad and admitted he is disappointed at Celtic's failure to get him under contract.

He told me: "I did speak with the player and he seemed quite happy to come here. He is a good player and I can only wish him well."

If Rangers, as expected, do sign the versatile Pole, who has had an outstanding season, it will certainly infuriate the Celtic fans who have persistently accused the Fergus McCann regime of penny-pinching in their dealings with players over the past five years.
