League One side Wigan Athletic have rejected an offer from Scottish outfit Rangers for right-back James Tavernier, according to Wigan Today.
The 23-year-old only joined the club last summer from Newcastle United after a series of six loan spells away from the club, joining for an undisclosed fee and signing a three-year deal.
He then joined Bristol City on loan in January, where he played a part in the Robins winning the League One title.
Tavernier usually plays at right-back but can fill in at right-wing back or right midfield if needed.
Rangers were linked with a double move for the former Rotherham United loanee and his teammate Martyn Waghorn this week, but only made a bid to try and sign Tavernier on the cheap, which has been rejected.
Rotherham are also thought to be monitoring his situation after impressing during his time in Yorkshire, and could make a return.
