No Cousin move!

No Cousin move!

Fifa have ruled out Daniel Cousin's £3 million transfer to Fulham.

The Rangers striker was planning on the switch with his club's blessing and all parties wanted the move.

But because he played for French club Lens at the beginning of the season, starting once in the Intertoto Cup in July and coming on as a substitute against Bordeaux in the French league, the transfer cannot go ahead.

Gers chief executive Martin Bain admitted the club had endured a 'frustrating time' which had ended negatively.

He criticised Fifa for the length of time it took to reach its decision, admitting he was 'disappointed' in the organisation.

Fifa rules state a player cannot appear for more than two teams in any given season and, though both Fulham and Gers' lawyers thought there were grounds for an appeal, has stuck to that line.

The news means Cousin must reconcile himself to remaining in Scotland for the remainder of the 2007/08 season.

'Obviously when I heard I had the opportunity to move to the Premier League and the offer was right both for myself and Rangers, it was difficult to turn down,' he said.

'However, I made it clear all along that I have enjoyed my time at Rangers and I am more than happy to stay, fight for my place and help the manager and the rest of the squad compete for silverware this season.'

Mascherano can play for three clubs in one season, but Cousin can't. Fecking disgrace.
