West Bromwich Albion are upping their bid for Rangers midfielder Steven Naismith.

The Scottish Sun says the Baggies will test Rangers' resolve with a new improved £2.5million offer for Naismith.

Gers' administrators Duff and Phelps rejected West Brom's initial £2m offer for Naismith last week.

But it is understood Hodgson hasn't given up hope of landing the 25-year-old.
