Starlet's Liverpool snub alerts Old Firm

Tranmere Rovers youngster Danny Holmes has rejected a move to Liverpool as he sets his sights on a move to Celtic or Rangers, according to talksport.

The 22-year-old has impressed in a revival in Rovers' fortunes since the return of Ronnie Moore which has seen them steer clean of relegation from League One.

However, despite having seen the likes of Jordon Ibe and Seyi Ojo move to Anfield in recent months, Holmes, having had a taste for first-team action, instead fancies a move north of the border.

"I have spoken with Danny and he would love to be a Rangers player as he wants to play at the highest level," his agent Jonathan Hope told talkSPORT.

"I have had open talks with Rangers regarding Danny and it was looking positive until the current crisis at Rangers happened. This will soon be resolved.

"He will improve the team and it’s important to me as his agent to ensure that he goes to the right club."

The Scottish Premier League's top two, Celtic and Rangers, are expected to do battle for Holmes, who plies his trade at centre-back.

However, a major stumbling block for Rangers, who prevented Celtic from claiming the title on Sunday with a 3-2 victory at Ibrox, is the club's crippling financial problems.

Despite having as many as five bids for the club in the offing, the Gers' troubles are far from being solved, and any transfer dealings are likely to be put on the back burner.

With the likes of John Flanagan, Jack Robinson and Martin Kelly having made their leagues debuts for Liverpool in recent months, Holmes' snub comes as a surprise.

However, he could have been put off by the trials endured by Danny Wilson, formerly of Rangers, who had made one league start since joining Liverpool in January 2010.

Holmes could be tempted by an opportunity to play in the Champions League, and while Rangers, who are unlikely to be permitted to compete in European competition next season, and Liverpool likely to miss out, Celtic could provide that opportunity.
