Rangers striker shelves retirement plans

January 18, 2007

Rangers striker Dado Prso is set to put retirement plans on hold and play on into next season.

The Croatian frontman, 32, had hinted that knee injury problems would prompt him to quit the game at the end of the current campaign.

However his agent, Ranko Stojic, believes Walter Smith would be happy to keep Prso for one more year.

Smith came out in praise of Prso's influence on the team this week, and has rued the fact a hamstring injury will keep him sidelined for at least a month.

Stojic told the Daily Record's Glasgow PM edition: 'Dado wants to stay at Rangers and I have had good dialogue with the club.

'They also want him to stay because not only is he good on the field, he is inspirational off it as well.

'Dado was going to call it a day but is now feeling much better about his fitness despite his latest injury.

'He really wants to carry on playing with Rangers and I see no reason why they won't offer him a new deal.'
