ALLY MCCOIST has confirmed today that Kirk Broadfoot and Mo Edu are on the verge of leaving Rangers.

American midfielder Edu is waiting for international clearance before he can secure his move to Premiership side Stoke City.

Broadfoot, meanwhile, has come to an agreement with Charles Green which will allow the defender to move on, putting an end to his five-year spell at the club.

The manager also hinted that captain Carlos Bocanegra could stay at Rangers with the current transfer window closing on Friday.

He said: “Kirk has agreed with Charles and the club that his contract will be null and void and that he will be free to leave the club as of today or tomorrow.

“There’s still one or two issues still to be tidied up there but it looks like Kirk will be leaving the club and I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his service to the club.

“As for Mo my reading of the situation is that he is requiring international clearance to go to Stoke.

“That is how close we are to that one going through.

“But Carlos is still very much a Rangers player, there’s been no activity or movement or change in the situation regarding Carlos.

“So he’ll hopefully be involved in our next few games and he will be here post window.

“That’s where we are with Carlos and the longer it goes the more chance there is he will stay.”

McCoist has been able to cast his eyes over several trialists recently with German midfielder Michael Fink again taking part in training this morning.

No decisions have been made about offering permanent deals but Ally is fully aware that time is running out for him to bolster his squad.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference at Murray Park today he said: “We’ve got a meeting with Charles today and the situation is clear in that we need bodies and we need to bring quality into the team.

“I’ve obviously said that and that is where we are, certainly in the next three days we will have to do that.

“In the last ten days or so we’ve lost Bedoya and it looks like Edu and Broadfoot are away, Goian has also gone out on loan.

“So we need to get bodies in.

“We have had three or four, maybe even five, trialists in and as yet we haven’t made a final decision on any of them.

“One or two have obviously impressed and that’s been great but as yet we’ve not made a final decision on them.”
