Rangers have turned down the chance to sign AS Monaco midfielder Jeremy Berthod.

The former France Under-21 star won four league titles with Lyon before moving to Monaco last year.

But the 23-year-old has only played four first-team games since leaving the Stade Gerland and his agents have been in touch with Gers.

The £2million-rated star has an impressive CV but Ibrox manager Walter Smith has decided against making a bid during the current transfer window, says the Sunday Mail.
