Rangers have agreed a new deal Robby McCrorie after West Ham were snubbed, Football Insider understands.
The Premier League big hitters had lodged their interest in the goalkeeper, 22, but that was knocked back.
Rangers announced this morning that academy product McCrorie, whose twin brother Ross also plays for the club, has signed a two-year contract extension tying to the club until 2023.
Football Insider revealed last month that the Glasgow giants were set to agree a new contract with McCrorie.after making it a priority earlier this year to keep hold of the youngster they believe can be a first-team fixture of the future.
Rangers have high hopes for McCrorie despite signing Jon McLaughlin from Sunderland on a free transfer at the end of last month.
The Scotland international, 32, will compete with veteran Allan McGregor for the No1 jersey next season.
McCrorie is at the other end of his career but is deemed capable of eventually taking over in goal.
Capped by Scotland at Under-21 international, he has yet to play for Rangers, but has had four spells out on loan.
