Daniel Cousin is expecting to stay at Rangers for the rest of the season, rather than move to Fulham.

A £3million transfer to Craven Cottage has been agreed, but Cousin is waiting on Fifa to make a ruling on the deal.

The striker played for Lens earlier this season before joining Rangers in August and requires special dispensation from Fifa to complete his switch to the Premier League.

Fifa may not announce their decision until next week, but Cousin already appears resigned to staying at Ibrox until the summer.

“There are three months left until the end of the season and in my head I’m staying in Glasgow,” said Cousin in the Daily Record.

“I’ve already said that to the manager, but I haven’t started a game in a month.”

Meanwhile, Rangers assistant manager Ally McCoist feels it is ‘a bonus’ to have Cousin available for Thursday’s Uefa Cup tie with Panathinaikos.

He was booed when he came on as a substitute in the 0-0 draw in the first leg at Ibrox, but could play some part in the return in Greece.

McCoist said: “It’s a bonus we’ve got Daniel available. The more players we have available means we’ve got a better chance. Having Daniel involved is a big bonus for us.

“Daniel’s fitness wasn’t a concern, but we’re aware we have to keep it up and he’s being doing extra training and his stuff with the lads.

“So I wouldn’t imagine it’ll be a problem.”
