The Rangers insist they have no interest in Coventry midfielder Gustavo Hamer following his ties to the Brazilian-born player.
The 23-year-old has impressed for the Sky Blues since he moved £ 1.2 million from Dutch team PEC Zwolle last year. As such, sources in the West Midlands claimed that he was on the radar of the Scottish Premiership leaders.
However, a source from Ibrox said: “There is nothing in this.”
The source insists that Hamer is not on any list of goals that the manager Steven Gerrard and athletic director Ross Wilson are monitoring.
Rangers this week contacted Aberdeen about attacking midfielder Scott Wright. The 23-year-old ends his contract in the summer.
However, players are more likely to leave Ibrox than to arrive in January. The likes of Greg Stewart and Jordan Jones are battling for playing time and have been linked to walkouts.
Meanwhile, former Ibrox midfielder Alex Rae has hailed Steven Davis as the “orchestrator” of the Rangers. The 36-year-old is preparing to make his 300th appearance for the Gers against Motherwell on Sunday.
Rae said ten10podcasts.com: “What a great server this has been for the game in general. He has also had a remarkable career with the Rangers.
“He’s about to hit another milestone and it’s great to have him back at Rangers because he’s certainly brought a level of performance and standards that we’ve been used to for decades.
“It is fundamental, it is like the orchestrator in the middle of the park. He pulls the strings and he’s a guy, if I were a younger midfielder like (Glen) Kamara or (Joe) Aribo in and around the Rangers, I’d look at this guy, see what he brings to the table.

Davis a ‘professional model’
“He is a model pro, and he is still performing at his age and what he has done in the game, 124 caps for Northern Ireland. It has been brilliant.
I’ll be honest with you, when he first came back I had my reservations and it took him four, five months to catch up and there were question marks, but my gosh, it hasn’t started to work this season. ?
“They have six midfielders in Rangers at the moment, but it has to be said that he is the number one starter.
“He slows down the game, speeds up the game and always has a brilliant ability to be in the right place when teams are fighting back.
“I think it’s vital to Steven Gerrard and the way he plays with the full backs bombarding forward.”
