Rangers have lost out to Barnsley in their pursuit of free-scoring striker Tom Bradshaw, according to a report.

The Express and Star claim Bradshaw has started undergoing a medical at the Championship club as he puts the finishing touches to a transfer from Walsall.

It is said Barnsley had a bid accepted for the forward after he handed in a transfer request on Wednesday that was accepted by Walsall.

Bradshaw has been strongly linked with Rangers as Mark Warburton aims to recruit a proven goalscorer this summer.

The striker has  caught the eye of clubs in Scotland and England after bagging 20-plus goals in successive seasons for League One side Walsall.

He began his career at Shrewsbury where he netted 17 times in 97 appearances across all competitions, before joining local rivals Walsall for an undisclosed fee.

The striker, whose contract runs out in 12 months, was expected to be at Euro 2016 with Wales but picked up a calf injury at their pre-tournament training camp.

Bradshaw made his Wales debut earlier this year under Chris Coleman, coming off the bench in a loss to Ukraine.

Leicester striker Joe Dodoo has jetted to Rangers to undertake a trial and could be snapped up after they lost out on Bradshaw.

Manager Warburton only has Martyn Waghorn and Kenny Miller as senior strikers in his squad for the upcoming season, although the pair helped fire the club to the Scottish Championship title last year with 34 goals between them in the league.

In other Rangers transfer news, their manager has used one word to describe the fans after signing a new deal.
