Jamie Walker was the subject of several failed bids from Rangers, whose manager Pedro Caixinha is relaxed about not bringing him to Ibrox.

Jamie Walker's latest Instagram post has been hijacked by Danny Swanson, who mocked the Rangers target over his failed move to Ibrox.

Rangers made several unsuccessful attempts to sign Walker, the Hearts winger, with the Edinburgh side holding out for £1 million.

On Thursday, Hearts manager Craig Levein appeared to take a swipe at Rangers, suggesting the Glasgow giants had failed to keep promises made to the player, who has already rejected a new contract at Tynecastle.

With his current deal due to expire next summer, many still expect Walker to sign for Rangers on a pre-contract agreement in the New Year.

But according to Swanson, a former teammate of the 24-year-old at Hearts who now plays for city rivals Hibernian, that assumption is only half accurate.

Commenting below a photo posted of Walker in training this week, Swanson joked: "Pre contract pending... Aye Berwick Rangers".

Asked on Thursday whether he was disappointed not to have signed Walker, Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha said: "No I’m not disappointed – I’d only be disappointed if we didn’t have cover in all the positions.

"Now I have – and I’ve told you from the very beginning and I can say it all day long – the best squad, I have the best players so I am happy."

Will Rangers finally get their hands on Walker next year?
