Rangers have £200k bid for Hearts striker Kyle Lafferty rejected

King was speaking ahead of the first leg of the club's Europa League second round qualifier against Osijek on Thursday.

Sunderland made an approach for Lafferty in January but failed to meet the Jambos' valuation, believed to be £750,000.

Craig Levein, the Hearts manager, could barely hide his disdain for Rangers' "disappointing" initial offer of £200,000 for their top scorer Kyle Lafferty, and admitted the former Ibrox striker has had his head turned by their interest.

Lafferty has previously played for Rangers between 2008 and 2012, scoring 30 goals. However, some supporters have not forgiven him for walking out when they went into administration, with the player joining Swiss outfit Sion on a free.

Lafferty has since had a number of clubs including Norwich City in the English Premier League, as well as a couple of loan stints at places such as Birmingham City in the Championship, before he relocated back to Scotland in June past year. Lafferty joined Hearts a year ago, having been linked to Edinburgh rivals, Hibernian.

Meanwhile, Rangers' move for Manchester City youngster Kean Bryan has hit a stumbling block.

Should deals be agreed for both players, the club will have added 12 players to their squad ahead of the new season.
