Rapid Vienna have informed Rangers that no decision will be made on Nikica Jelavic's future just yet.
The Gers have made it clear that they wish to bring the Croatia international on board and are reported to have tabled a £2million bid.
Jelavic has announced that he would welcome the opportunity to test himself in British football and has pleaded with Rapid to let him follow his dream.
The Austrian outfit are biding their time, though, before giving Rangers an answer, as they value the player at least double what the SPL giants are offering.
Further discussions will be held in the next 24 hours regarding the matter, but Rapid have made it clear that no decision will be taken until Thursday at the earliest.
"There will be no outcome today (Wednesday) as our sporting director will not be back until tomorrow," said a Rapid spokesman.
"This will be discussed at a board meeting tomorrow morning."
Rangers could be forced to wait until after the Europa League qualifiers are concluded before landing their man, with Rapid keen for Jelavic to front their attack in continental competition.
The games are scheduled to be staged on 19th and 26th August, so the Gers would still have a few days left in which to push a deal through before the transfer window slams shut.
