Fifa have revealed that no decision will be made on the future of Daniel Cousin until next week.
With Rangers boss Walter Smith currently unwilling to play the Gabon international for risk of him picking up an injury before a decision has been made, Cousin currently finds himself left in limbo, unable to play and unsure of where his future lies.
It had been hoped that a judgment would be made on Wednesday as to whether the striker would be allowed to complete his protracted switch to Premier League side Fulham, but that has now been delayed.
Having already represented Lens and Rangers this season the move breaks Fifa regulations which stipulate that a player cannot play for more than two clubs in any one season.
However, with Fulham appealing the decision and Rangers already resigned to losing the player, it is hoped that an agreement can be reached allowing the deal to go through.
A spokesman for Rangers told the club's official website: "Rangers Football Club has been advised by Fulham that Fifa will make a decision on Daniel Cousin's proposed transfer to the London club some time next week."
