St Mirren boss Gus MacPherson has approached Rangers about bringing Stevie Smith to the club on loan. Full-back Smith has been hampered by injuries and also struggled for first-team football at Ibrox.

MacPherson told the Daily Record: "We have made an inquiry about bringing Stevie on loan for the rest of the season.

"Right now we are waiting to see what happens with it."

MacPherson also reiterated his desire to retain the services of midfielder Andy Dorman, who has been linked with Championship club Nottingham Forest.

He said: "We have not had an inquiry from Forest for Andy and we certainly would not encourage any."
