Marius Zaliukas: Spent seven years at Tynecastle but will not be joining Rangers

The defender, who left Hearts this summer, trained with the League One club for a week earlier this month.

Zaliukas returned home to Lithuania with the offer of an Ibrox contract on the table, but he is keen to pursue alternatives.

McCoist told the club website: "Sadly that deal has gone dead at the moment, and I think Marius has one or two other options.

"(Chief executive) Craig Mather effectively put an offer to him which wasn't met, so we're just about closing that one off at this moment in time."

Zaliukas made more than 200 appearances during seven years at Tynecastle.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
