Hearts star reveals why he rejected Rangers
Hearts defender Ryan McGowan has explained why he rejected the chance to join Rangers before the transfer window closed.
Rangers had a bid for the 23-year-old accepted, bu the Australian defender did not want to drop down to the Third Division.
"Hearts accepted a bid but I rejected it," said the full-back in the Daily Record.
"Ally McCoist called me to go and see him, which I did out of courtesy, but I explained I didn't think it was the right move.
"I was put in a position with Hearts accepting the bid. Rangers may have good players but you only improve by playing against the best, and that's in the SPL, not Division Three.
"It's a massive club but it wouldn't have helped my international prospects. It was a football decision."
