There is no way that is guaranteed to succeed, protein is not protein.
Several vendors (like Pharmacia or Pierce) flogg preactivated
gel-matrices with different chemistries, that you could try. Cyanogen
bromide activated sepharose is probably the most commonly used.

If you are dealing with a glycoprotein, you could try to link via the
carbohydrate moiety, this is most likely to leave enzymatic activity
