Everton manager David Moyes could look to heap further misery on Rangers by offering Steven Naismith the opportunity to leave the Scottish club in the coming weeks.
The contracts of all of the players need to switched over to the new Sevco consortium but a number have indicated that they would rather leave Rangers.
Steven David, Kyle Lafferty, Steven Whittaker, Allan McGregor, Jamies Ness, Sone Aluko and Rhys McCabe have all joined Naismith in indicating that they would like to leave the club.
The Daily Mail believes that Moyes is interested in signing the striker who first joined Rangers back in 2007 and has gone on to make close to 100 appearances for the club.
His appearances have been limited due to a number of injuries, including a cruciate ligament injury that forced him to miss the vast majority of last season.
Meanwhile, new Rangers chairman Charles Green has spoken out about the players who are refusing to transfer their contracts.
"I'm very, very disappointed of course," Green is quoted as saying in the Telegraph. "Particularly so late in the proceedings. It is clear in the regulations, if someone has an objection they have to notify within 24 hours, this is nearly two weeks. I think this is just opportunism. We will definitely challenge it, yes."
