Rangers unlikely to cover wages of Newcastle's Smith

Any move to Rangers for Newcastle United striker Alan Smith could come down to what the Scottish giants can afford to pay him.

Smith is a big Gers fan and was at Parkhead on Sunday for their defeat to Celtic, which has fueled talk of a move to Ibrox in the summer.

But the Evening Chronicle says Smith will know better than anyone that his £60,000-a-week wages at St James's are nearly three times more than the best paid player at Ibrox.
