Football: Dick says Negri will not return.

RANGERS boss Dick Advocaat last night dismissed reports that Marco Negri wanted to return to Ibrox.

The striker, currently on loan to Vicenza, has yet to kick a ball for the champions since the Dutchman took over last June.

He scored 36 goals in his first - and so far only - season since his pounds 3.5million move from Perugia in 1997 but his behaviour since then has been a source of embarrassment to the club.

It was claimed yesterday that the moody Italian was ready to patch up his differences and come back to Glasgow but Advocaat is unconvinced.

He said: "Negri has to say that because he is still under contract here. I don't think it was him but his agent who said this.

"I don't think he will come back. Maybe he will change his mind - if he doesn't find another club he will need to."

One player very much in the coach's thoughts is Dundee's Dariusz Adamczuk.

Advocaat said: "We are still in the market for him.

"Rangers have always been in contact with him. Celtic tried to persuade him to play for them but he has to make up his own mind about that."
