STEVEN GERRARD will not be making a move for Russian midfielder Daler Kuzyaev this summer.

Reports on the continent had claimed that Gerrard was interested in the Zenit St Petersburg star as he looks to bolster his central ranks.

The likes of Marseille, Besiktas and Alaves were also linked with the 27-year-old and Zenit sporting director Alexander Medvedev said: "Daler has interest from a number of clubs in Europe and has rejected our offer of a new contract. We wish him luck in his career."

But Herald and Times Sport can confirm that Kuzyaev is not a target for Rangers and won't be making the move to Ibrox this summer.

Gerrard has completed most of his transfer business already but remains in the market for another midfielder as he looks to add the finishing touches to his squad this term.
