Rangers manager Paul Le Guen has insisted that Dado Prso is not a spent force.

The Croatian striker will quit Ibrox when his current deal expires next summer due to persistent knee problems, but is aiming to go out on a high and featured against Hearts and Auxerre last week.

He then scored a fine goal in Sunday's 3-0 victory over Kilmarnock before being brought off in the 59th minute, and Le Guen hopes to get as much use out of him as possible.

"Dado didn't come off because he was bad, it was because I wanted to rest him," said Le Guen.

"I am pleased because he was good on Thursday and he was good again today for an hour.

"I hope that he will be fit again for next Sunday (against Falkirk)."

Midfielder Charlie Adam, who also got his name on the scoresheet against Killie, paid tribute to Prso's resilience.

"He's had a lot of problems with his knee over the last few years, but to play three games in a week has been unbelievable," he praised.

"Dado knows what's right for him and the manager will know when to play him or when to rest him.

"Dado getting a goal was good. It has been a long time for him.

"He's a good player, he's played in World Cups, he's played in European Championships and he's one of Croatia's highest caps.

"He is a big player for us. With Dado Prso on the pitch, you know he can produce that bit of magic that could win you the game.

"It's great to play with someone like that."
