RUGBY UNION: CAP STILL FIRED UP.

Byline: ROBERT MARTIN

RANGERS winger Nuno Capucho may have failed to rise to expectations since his arrival at Ibrox - but he is ready to prove the critics wrong.

Capucho signed for Rangers after FC Porto's UEFA Cup win over Celtic, but has struggled to adapt to the Scottish game.

He said: "The Rangers fans are fantastic, and I want to do well for them because they have given me great backing.

"I think they knew I was not playing at my best, but they supported me and I appreciate that. Now it is time for me to pay them back and I hope I can do that.

"Criticism is normal in football. If you don't produce your best you can expect to be criticised."

Meanwhile, Rangers boss Alex McLeish is in talks to secure star youngsters Chris Burke and Steven MacLean on new contracts.
