Bolton Still Waiting For Wylde Clearance

Bolton are still awaiting clearance from FIFA that will allow Gregg Wylde to make his debut for the club.

Wylde joined Wanderers from Glasgow Rangers last month after taking voluntary redundancy from the Scottish giants, who entered administration in February.

The 21-year-old has yet to play for the Trotters and it is believed Duff and Phelps, Rangers' administrators, are set to send a letter to Bolton chairman, Phil Gartside, which would potentially allow clearance to be granted.

Wanderers boss Owen Coyle admits the situation has become one of frustration, but he hopes to have the Scotland under-21 international available before the end of the season.

"It hinges on whether FIFA feel it was a mutual decision or if there were redundancies made - that is the clarification they want," Coyle said.

"It's frustrating for everybody, especially Gregg. He is a good kid and desperate to play his part but until we get that authorisation, he can't be involved.

"He is training with us and is ready to be part of the squad."
