Rangers have rejected a £400,000 offer from Bolton Wanderers for winger Gregg Wylde.

The 20-year-old, who is the final year of his contract, has been attracting a lot of interest notably from Newcastle United and Norwich City.

The Scotland U21 international has failed to agree a new deal with the Scottish champions which has alerted the Premier League clubs.

But Rangers are keen to retain his services and have knocked back an attempt by the Trotters to sign the youngster.

Bolton are in the market for attacking players following a horrific leg break to Chung-Yong Lee.

There have been reports linking boss Owen Coyle to Shaun Wright-Phillips but wages are proving to be a source of frustration.

Gers boss Ally McCoist insists he would not welcome any further offers for the highly-rated midfielder.

“The bid from Bolton was not accepted and I don’t want Gregg Wylde to go anywhere,” he told the club’s website.

“He is a good young talent and we feel he has done very well.

“We want him to sign on again with us and we want his progress to continue here at this football club.

“I now have the opportunity to say any further bids we receive for Gregg will not be welcomed either.

“I’m hopeful with Gregg’s case that a resolution can be reached and that we can get to a conclusion we are all happy with.

“This is as good a time as ever for a young player to be coming through the ranks at Ibrox and that’s the situation for Gregg too, so we hope he signs with us again.”
