Scottish Premiership side Rangers have suffered a blow in their quest to sign goalkeeper Declan Rudd who was handed a new contract at Preston North End.
Preston announced on their official website that Rudd penned a new three-year deal that would see him remain at the club until 2023 respectively.
Football Insider reported Rangers were heavily interested in him and they were hoping he would be considering joining them.
Number two Wes Foderingham is out of contract at the end of June, as is loaned-out Jak Alnwick, while undisputed first choice Allan McGregor turned 38 in June.
Rudd has kept seven clean sheets, conceded 45 goals in North End's 37 matches in the Championship this season.
He has now made a total of 158 appearances for the club since joining them on a permanent deal in 2017 after two loan spells from Norwich City.
