Wesley Verhoek admits there is no chance of him signing for Rangers after snubbing a move to Nottingham Forest.

A fee had been agreed between Forest and his club ADO Den Haag, but the deal collapsed at the 11th hour after the Dutch winger expressed a desire to remain in his homeland. New Rangers manager Ally McCoist has faced some difficulties in recruiting new players this summer and now appears highly unlikely to land the 24-year-old.

Verhoek was quoted in the Daily Record as saying: "It was a straight choice between Glasgow or Nottingham but now it will be neither."

He added: "I was weighing up Rangers or Forest and I asked people all about Rangers and what it'd be like to live in Glasgow.

"Nottingham was even closer to home but now I know I wouldn't be happy here either. I just want to play in Holland for now.

"There is no second agenda and no other club involved. I'm not going anywhere else. I'm just going back to Den Haag and I'll be back at training there Thursday. I'm sorry to all the people I have let down."
