Bojan Miovski is a player Rangers 'like' but the Ibrox side fear they could be held to ransom by Aberdeen's high demands.

That's according to a report in the Daily Mail amid continued speculation about the star Dons striker's future, which Alan Burrows recently addressed, writes Football Scotland.

The Pittodrie chief revealed no bids had been made to lure the high-scoring forward away from the Granite City.

Gers fans could expect more arrivals in the coming days, with one crucial area being centre-forward where Cyriel Dessers proved to be a burden last season.

He will need support and there is even the chance he will need replaced with reports suggesting Greek side PAOK are in for the Nigerian frontman, and two players in the domestic game that have often been mentioned are Miovski and Hearts' Lawrence Shankland.

The Daily Mail has now addressed any potential interest in the duo, with their report claiming that the Macedonian, 25, is a player liked by the Ibrox club but they fear being "held to ransom" by Pittodrie chiefs due to the long-standing rivalry between the sides.

As for Shankland, the 28-year-old is out of contract next summer but it's believed the Jambos would still want around £5million to sell this summer, with the club unwilling to splash out on a player available for nothing in a year.
