Jon Daly: Rangers boss Ally McCoist confirms the Dundee United captain is one of

The 30-year-old striker will be out of contract at the end of the season, entitling Rangers to offer him a contract despite being under a transfer embargo until 1 September.

And while McCoist has confirmed he has started planning for next season, he also confirmed Daly has caught his eye.

Speaking to RangersTV, McCoist said: "All we are doing is registering a note of interest in players and Jon is one of a number who are out of contract with their own clubs at the end of this season. We're just confirming that status with the clubs.

"There is nothing more to tell, nothing more to say but we are looking to bring players to the club and they have to be free transfers. We aren't able to register them until September 1 but he is one of a number we are looking at.

"He ticks a lot of boxes but unfortunately at this moment in time he ticks them for Dundee United. Time will tell whether we keep our interest in players like John but we are certainly looking to strengthen the squad for next year, that goes without saying."

Rangers cannot officially sign or register new players until their embargo is lifted, but they can offer a contract to free agents and players can feature in up to three matches as a trialist.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
