The Championship side attempted to swoop for the Croatian ahead of the transfer deadline but the Scottish champions have thrown out the offer.

A statement on the club's website read: "Rangers Football Club can confirm that they have rejected a £6.5m bid for striker Nikica Jelavic from English Championship side Leicester City."

Jelavic joined Rangers from Austrian club Rapid Vienna last summer.

He scored 18 goals in 28 SPL games last season to attract interest from a number of clubs.
