According to The Edinburgh Evening News, Heart of Midlothian have rejected as many as two offers from Rangers for Jamie Walker.

It has been reported that Rangers initially made a bid of £500,000 for Walker which Scottish Premiership rivals Hearts turned down.

The Glasgow giants then came back with a second offer of £600,000, but once again, it was rejected, as reported by The Edinburgh News.

According to the report, Hearts are determined not to sell the 23-year-old winger for less than £1 million, meaning that Rangers’ second offer was short by £400,000.

If Rangers are serious about Walker, then they should pay the £1m that Hearts want; in the long run, they are not going to regret it.

The former Scotland Under-21 international is one of the best wingers in Scotland and has extensive experience of playing in the Scottish Premiership.

Not only would Walker added strength and depth to Pedro Caixinha’s side, but given that he is 23, the winger is only going to develop and improve his game.

Hearts will be aiming to finish second or third in the Scottish Premiership next season and so will Rangers. Signing a quality player like Walker from Hearts is only going weaken Ian Cathro’s side.
