Zaliukas links up with Rangers

Rangers have confirmed that Marius Zaliukas has linked up with the club's pre-season training camp ahead of a potential move to Ibrox.

The former Hearts defender left Leeds United by mutual consent earlier this week, and Ally McCoist has wasted little time in making his move.

The 30-year-old was wanted by Rangers before he moved to England last season, but now he is close to linking up with the Gers - who will be looking to seal a move back to the Scottish top-flight next season.

Zaliukas spent seven years with Hearts up to 2013, before moving to England with Leeds.

Rangers are currently in the north of Scotland on a pre-season training camp, where they will face Buckie Thistle and Brora.
