Rangers' Dorin Goian cleared to play in Champions League qualifier

The Scottish champions have won their appeal to allow their recently signed Romanian defender to play in the club's crucial second leg match against Swedish side Malmo
Rangers boss Ally McCoist has been assured that defender Dorin Goian can play in the club's massive second leg match against Malmo.

The Romanian defender had looked set to miss the Champions League qualifier after Uefa ruled that he had not been granted a work permit in time, but Rangers have now confirmed that they have won their appeal and he will be able to play in the second leg.

Goian, who made his league debut in the win over St Johnstone, is likely to replace club captain David Weir against Malmo, with the Scottish side looking to overturn a 1-0 defeat in the first leg at Ibrox.
