Rangers midfielder Alan Gow has been given permission to continue playing, despite failing a medical at Wolves earlier this month.

Gers boss Walter Smith said, "Alan has returned from the specialist who said there is nothing wrong with his hip.

"There is nothing needing done. He has a slight weakness in his hamstring which they are trying to fix, but he is free to play.

"He would never have missed a game and it is difficult to understand what all the fuss was about.

"(Wolves) have made their decision, but there is nothing from the specialist's point of view with the hip which we were told needs to be done.

"He has to strengthen his hamstring, which he can do while he is training and playing.

"It's a strange one, but there you are.

"We have not had any more enquiries for anyone, but in his case that is influenced by the fact people think he is not fit and he is.

"He never missed a game for Blackpool so when the thing came up, it was a surprise to everybody."
