Dundee United chairman Stephen Thompson has warned Rangers off highly-rated youngster David Goodwillie.
The Gers have been linked with a £750,000 move for Goodwillie with the Scotland Under-21 international enjoying a fine season at Tannadice.
United are determined to keep hold of Goodwillie and Thompson doubts whether even Rangers could afford the forward
"We've had no contact from Rangers or any other club about David Goodwillie," said Thompson
"I've seen the figures mentioned and the first thing I would say is that any club bidding £750,000 would be wasting their time.
"If that's all someone can offer then they shouldn't bother because it would take much more than that for us to give it any serious consideration.
"David is signed up on a long-term contract and we want him to remain with Dundee United."
A number of United's players have been linked with moves away from Tannadice this summer and Thompson admits he is not surprised to see some of their prize assets attracting interest elsewhere
"When you are doing well people will get linked with your players," added Thompson.
"There's nothing you can do to prevent that and it's something we'll probably see more of over the summer. But one thing is for sure, no one will be leaving Dundee United on the cheap."
