Blackburn Rovers may have to play a waiting game for Rangers defender Lorenzo Amoruso, according to the player's official representative.

The Ewood Park club have made a bid for the Light Blues centre-half and are waiting for a response from Ibrox.

Amoruso's representative Andrea D'Amico will speak with Rangers officials tomorrow but warns there are other interested parties in England, Spain and Italy.

He said: "I haven't talked to Graeme Souness but we have some more options so we will need 10 more days.

"We are considering some other options from the Premiership and from Italy and Spain.

"Rangers have not indicated whether they will listen to offers yet but I will speak to them tomorrow."

The former Fiorentina man is currently preparing for the Tennent's Scottish Cup final against Dundee on Saturday.

But Rovers chief executive John Williams has confirmed his club's bid for Amoruso.

We tried to sign Amoruso, I can't make my mind up about him. Seems to lose concentration too often, which for a centre back is very dangerous!

Lorenzo Amoruso has confirmed he will sign for Blackburn Rovers once he has completed a medical.

The Rangers defender returned to Italy following the club's treble-winning success at the end of last season to ponder his future but was believed to be arriving in Lancashire on Monday to finalise the move.

And the big Italian insists he cannot wait to work under former Ibrox boss Graeme Souness, despite admitting he did not want to leave Glasgow.

He told the Daily Record: "Everything should be finalised with Blackburn after I complete my medical.


Well it looks like he will be going..I agree with you their Teflon he pushes up to much for a defender and is caught out of position alot..

Blackburn are on the brink of signing Brett Emerton after the Australia international completed his medical at Ewood Park.

Rovers are now in talks with the 24-year-old midfielder who will leave Dutch giants Feyenoord.

Blackburn chief executive John Williams said: "I can confirm that further discussions have taken place and are ongoing. The player himself has undergone a medical and we are making progress."

Meanwhile another Australian, full-back Lucas Neill, has agreed a contract extension to stay at Rovers until the summer of 2007.

The 25-year-old, who joined from Millwall for 1million in 2001, becomes the longest-contracted senior player at Rovers.

Well Emerton will be a great signing if they manage to pull it off....

Brett Emerton is looking forward to working with Graeme Souness after completing his move from Feyenoord to Blackburn.

Souness' management style has been criticised by former Rovers players David Dunn and Keith Gillespie this week following the duo's arrivals at Birmingham and Leicester respectively.

But Australia midfielder Emerton, who moved to Ewood Park for an undisclosed fee on Thursday, says he has been nothing but impressed by the Scot during negotiations.

Blackburn are on the verge of clinching the signing of full-back Vratislav Gresko on a permanent contract.

The Slovakia international, who spent half of last season on loan from Italian side Parma, underwent a medical on Tuesday on a foot injury he suffered against Leeds last season.

Unless Ewood Park medical staff are worried about his progress, Gresko is expected to sign a three-year deal.

Gresko will become manager Graeme Souness' fourth signing of the summer with Brett Emerton, Lorenzo Amoruso and goalkeeper David Yelldell being unveiled on Monday.

Steven Reid has warned Blackburn fans not to expect him to fill the void created by the departure of Damien Duff.

Reid joined Rovers at the end of last month for 2.5million from Millwall and had been hoping to link up with his fellow Republic of Ireland international this season at Ewood Park, only for Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich to step in.

The spending power of Chelsea's new owner led to a clause in Duff's Rovers contract being activated, and after considerable deliberation, the midfielder completed a 17million move to Stamford Bridge.

The promise of house-hunting together in the north west has now gone by the wayside for Reid, whom Blackburn boss Graeme Souness is convinced will be a top Premiership player in the next four or five years.

Tributes poured in today following the death of former Blackburn manager Ray Harford.

The 58-year-old, who had been battling against cancer, helped Kenny Dalglish lift the Premiership title at Blackburn in 1995 and was acknowledged as one of the finest coaches of his generation.

Colin Hendry led the tributes, admitting he helped turn his career around.

Hendry was the rock on which Blackburn built the foundations of their title success.

"Ray was very influential in my career," said the former Scotland central defender. "He was the one who stuck me in my position and said 'don't move from there'.

"He told me my position was to defend, not to let anyone pass.

"He was a top-class coach and ranks alongside people like Craig Brown and Roy Hodgson."

Harford was assistant to Dalglish when the championship was secured. It was an ideal partnership, according to Hendry.
