Rangers manager Ally McCoist has confirmed Hearts winger David Templeton is on his wanted list as he aims to sign up to six players before Friday's transfer deadline.
McCoist has lost a number of first-team regulars since the club was consigned to liquidation and voted into the Irn-Bru Third Division in the summer, and he is keen to recruit up to half a dozen players before a 12-month transfer embargo comes into effect on September 1.
Rangers have made an offer for Templeton and McCoist joked that the price has probably increased following the player's role in Thursday night's Europa League play-off against Liverpool.
The 23-year-old's shot was spilled over the line by Jose Reina to hand Hearts a lifeline at Anfield before Liverpool hit back late on to secure their place in the group stages.
Speaking after his own side's 3-0 win over Falkirk in the Scottish Communities League Cup, McCoist said: "I thought it was an own-goal watching the goal tonight and the goalkeeper probably should have saved it. I would rather anybody had scored that goal to be quite frank with you other than David Templeton.
"All kidding aside, I watched the last 15 minutes and Hearts were great and it was just really disappointing they lost a goal late on.
"I've said for a number of weeks now that we've got to get bodies in and David is one we would be really keen to get, along with a few others.
"Tomorrow and maybe tonight have to be busy."
Asked if Kilmarnock goalkeeper Cammy Bell is another target, McCoist added: "In an ideal world, I would like to get another keeper in and let young Gall (Scott Gallacher) go and play somewhere. But that isn't a priority at the moment.
"I know Cammy has had an operation on his arm, and that wouldn't put me off, but he's somebody else's player and you have to respect that. I wouldn't talk about that."
