The duo's agent Ladi Salami had been quoted as claiming Ibrox boss Ally McCoist was ready to swoop for the pair.

Gomis, 27, left Tannadice to join Birmingham in 2011, while Buaben, 25, moved to Watford after almost four seasons on Tayside.

But an Ibrox spokesman insisted the Light Blues had no plans to bring Frenchman Gomis and former Ghana international Prince Buaben back to Scotland.

A statement released on the club's official website read: "Rangers Football Club can confirm we have no interest in signing former Dundee Utd players Prince Buaben and Morgaro Gomis.

"The players' agent has been in contact with the club to highlight their availability however we have no intention of signing either midfielder.

"Rangers fans can keep informed with accurate information on club media channels."

The report also claimed Aberdeen and Hearts could make moves for the duo, both signed for United in 2007 by former Tannadice and Scotland manager Craig Levein.

Gomis played 19 times for the Blues last season, many as a replacement, while Buaben appeared for only seven minutes as a substitute for beaten Championship play-off finalists Watford.

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
