Confirmed: Rangers target heads to Scotland for trial

By Tom Blackburn

Rangers target Khalid Aucho says he will travel to Aberdeen this week for a two-week trial.

Football Insider last month reported that the midfielder’s club Gor Mahria were making the deal difficult for Rangers.

Aucho claimed that a deal to join Rangers was all but done, but the stance of his employers was that the Uganda international hasdjumped the gun with his comments.

He has since left Gor, and is searching for a club away from Ugandan soil.

Talking to Aucho revealed he was hopeful of impressing the club after finally securing a transfer away from Uganda.

“I will be travelling to Scotland for trials with Aberdeen, they have invited me for a two week activities and I hope I will impress them,” he said.

“I have been waiting for the opportunity to play abroad and since this one has come, I have to commit myself and work for something positive.

“Well, I am very pleased with it and equally positive that the outcome will be good.”

The combative midfielder, who can play as a defender, had a fine season and was instrumental in helping his side finish second in the Ugandan league.

During May, Aucho was crowned the leagues player of the month when the Ugandan side claimed four wins from four games with Aucho scoring one goal and providing one assist.

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes has admitted an interest in the player, but the club have refused to confirm whether Aucho’s claim that he will be at Pittodrie for the next two weeks is correct.
