Scottish champions Rangers have made a deadline day bid for Norwich City captain Grant Holt, Sky Sports understands.

Gers boss Ally McCoist has seen leading marksman Nikica Jelavic agree a deal with Everton, and he will complete his move to Merseyside on Tuesday.

McCoist has made Holt his number one target and is now hoping some of the Jelavic money will be used to lure him to Glasgow.

Grant Holt has taken to life in the English top tier incredibly well, after a career in the lower leagues the 30 year old Canaries striker has struck seven Premier League goals in 11 starts and has now attracted the attention of SPL giants Rangers.

It may well be a move that the former Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday man has to think long and hard about and Ally McCoist, who seems likely to lose Nikica Jelavic, may well see the big old fashioned forward as the man to fill the breach.

Canaries fans would greatly miss Holt who has become something of a cult hero at Carrow Road, helping the East Anglia based side to back to back promotions and scoring 62 goals in 102 starts in the process.
