Liverpool failed with a deadline day bid for Rangers striker Nikica Jelavic.

The Sun says Anfield boss Kenny Dalglish moved to land the Ibrox ace yesterday afternoon.

Rangers dismissed the offer and insisted the hitman was going NOWHERE. King Kenny was looking for attacking options after losing David Ngog, Raul Meireles and Joe Cole.

He signed up Craig Bellamy from Manchester City but Jelavic was on his radar. Dalglish chanced his arm with a cheeky bid to take the hitman on loan before he made a more realistic offer.
