Defender Wesley Hoedt claims he burst our laughing when he heard about potential interest from Rangers. The centre-back has revived his career in Belgium with Anderlecht following an ill-fated move to Southampton.

The Dutchman spent most of his St Mary's spell out on loan with spells at Lazio, Celta Vigo and Royal Antwerp before a permanent exit to Vincent Kompany's side.It had been claimed in the Belgian press that Gio van Bronckhorst had sent scouts to watch the 27-year-old as he weighed up centre-back options.Hoedt was signed by sporting director Ross Wilson during his time as director of scouting and recruitment at Southampton.

But Wilson has snapped up John Souttar on a pre-contract to bolster the backline for next season. Now the Anderlecht man has taken the chance to claim he was never interested in a move to the Premiership leaders.
