The Ibrox side had a bid of around £400k turned down for the centre-back earlier this week. It is believed they won’t be returning with a vastly improved offer as they refuse to get involved in a bidding war for the player.

Several English clubs are interested in the League Two star, including Premier League hopefuls Derby County.

Rangers are happy to wait to see how things develop as they believe their offer to be more than fair.
