Novo seals double delight for Rangers

Substitute Nacho Novo's second-half strike gives Rangers a 1-0 win in the Scottish Cup final against Falkirk.

Substitute Nacho Novo's second-half strike gave Rangers a 1-0 win in yesterday's Scottish Cup final against Falkirk. Novo was brought on at half-time after a goalless first half and he made an immediate impact as he struck with a 30-yard volley 29 seconds after the restart. Rangers had last Sunday won the Scottish Premier League as well.

Meanwhile, the Genoa president Enrico Preziosi has confirmed his club had completed a deal to sign the Inter Milan striker Hernan Crespo with Diego Milito and Thiago Motta going in the opposite direction to join Inter. "We are delighted," said Preziosi. Roberto Acquafresca, who has been on loan from Inter at Cagliari, will also mover to Genoa in the deal. sports@thenational.ae
