Walter Smith has confirmed several clubs are keen on Jeremy Clement.
Rangers boss Walter Smith has confirmed several clubs have expressed an interest in signing Jeremy Clement.
Clement is thought to be keen on quitting Rangers just seven months after arriving in Glasgow.
Paris Saint Germain manager Paul Le Guen has revealed his interest in being reunited with Clement having signed him for Rangers.
Lyon are also thought to be lining up a move for Clement and Smith admitted a number of teams have enquired about the midfielder.
"We do have a situation where there have been enquiries about him but that's not the reason he isn't here," Smith said after Sunday's win at Dunfermline.
"He reported yesterday ill with the flu.
"We've had a couple of enquiries from clubs and it all depends on whether they come back with a bid.
"We will just have to wait and see if that is the case."
Smith also played down talk of a move for former Rangers ace Charlie Miller.
Miller is looking to leave Norwegian side Brann Bergen and return to Britain for personal reasons.
The 30-year-old is set to link up with Rangers for training next week in a bid to keep fit, but Smith insists he has no plans to sign the midfielder.
"He is training with us tomorrow," added Smith. "He is coming home because someone in his family is ill and he asked if he could do some training."
