Canaries reject Gers’ Holt bid

Ibrox boss Ally McCoist made a move for the Canaries captain,

with top goalscorer Nikica Jelavic set to complete his switch to

Everton.

However, the Scottish champions have failed in their attempt to

bring the 30-year-old to Ibrox.

Everton confirmed earlier today that they had agreed a fee with

Rangers for Jelavic, who has netted 17 goals this season.

That means McCoist could be left facing a race against time to

replace the Croatian before tonight’s transfer deadline if he

completes his move to Goodison Park.

Holt caught the eye of the Rangers boss with nine goals in 23

appearances for the Barclays Premier League club so far this

season.

But it would appear McCoist must now look elsewhere after his

attempts to recruit the player were rebuffed.
