Mick McCarthy is resigned to losing out to Rangers in the race for Falkirk's Alan Gow.
Wolves boss Mick McCarthy is resigned to losing out to Rangers in the race for Falkirk winger Alan Gow.
The Scotland hopeful is out of contract at the end of the season and Falkirk want £500,000 to sell Gow in the January transfer window.
A bid of £100,000 from Wolves has already been rejected, while Rangers have also had an offer knocked back.
Molineux chief McCarthy remains keen on the attacker, but concedes Rangers' interest has scuppered his hopes of signing Gow.
"I know that his preferred choice is to go to Ibrox," McCarthy told the Daily Record.
"We did make an offer for him which was rejected and if it is a choice between going to Rangers or Wolves, then I can't argue with him wanting to go to Rangers."
Falkirk are hoping to persuade Gow to stay at the club until the end of the season, with manager John Hughes feeling his value could rise to £2million.
