Mention a play to recommend (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

nominate

Here is my best explanation:

'recommend' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'mention a play' is the subsidiary indication.

'play' indicates anagramming the letters.

'mention'+'a'='mentiona'

'mentiona' anagrammed gives 'nominate'.

'to' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Irish Times

(Other definitions for nominate that I've seen before include "Choose", "Name", "Specify (person for job)", "Put forward name for a mention", "Propose - name", "Pick as a candidate", "Put forward (as candidate for election)", "A mention (anag)", "Propose for office" and "Propose - a mention (anag)".)
