Ex-Watford winger Bouazza, former Stoke forward Sidibe on trial with Rangers

Rangers have taken a pair of former Premier League players on trial as they look to bolster their squad ahead of the new Scottish League One season.

Former Watford and Fulham winger Hameur Bouazza and veteran striker Mamady Sidibe, formerly of Stoke City, are both looking to win contracts with 'Gers according to manager Ally McCoist.

The pair were brought to the attention of the Ibrox club by agent Gregory Dakad who helped bring new signing Bilel Mohsni to Glasgow.

"The boys are two players who (agent) Gregory (Dakad) looks after and they'll be well known to people who know their English and European football," said McCoist on Monday.

"They've just come in to have a look at our place and also for us to have a wee look at them. This is their first day as they came into the city last night.

"They trained this morning and they were absolutely fine. They're obviously not up to the same levels of fitness as our lads are but that's totally understandable.

"They haven't done any pre-season training yet and there's no pressure on anybody. We'll make them feel very welcome and we'll see what happens.

"It would be crazy of us not to take the option to bring other people in and have a look at them after the success we've had with Bilel's trial. Both players have good pedigree."
