Ally McCoist is pleased to have fended off late interest in Rangers pair Nikica Jelavic and Steven Davis and insists they are ready for the season ahead.

The Scottish champions would have been severely weakened had they accepted Leicester's £6.5 million offer for Jelavic which came in the dying embers of the transfer window.

McCoist also claimed there was late interest in Davis from Aston Villa but which too was dismissed.

Squad

Over the summer Rangers managed to add strength in depth to their squad with the acquisition of seven players.

And after retaining the services of his in-demand duo, McCoist believes Rangers will be able to defend their title.

"I'm delighted that both Nikica and Steven are staying. There was no pressure to sell either player but the club received a serious offer for Nikica from Leicester," he told the club's official website.

Rejected

"The fact it was rejected sends out a clear message to all Rangers fans and I have no doubt the players we have are more than capable of defending the SPL title.

"It has been a long window with lots of speculation but we have added seven new players while the core of our double-winning side last season has been re-signed.

"So I am more than happy with the squad we have."
