Dundee United have claimed Rangers have not contacted the club about the availability of striker David Goodwillie since 20th June.
The Scotland striker is believed to be available for a fee in the region of £2million, with English Championship sides Cardiff City and Blackpool also interested.
Goodwillie, 22, earned a call-up to the senior national squad for a friendly match against the Faroe Islands in November, and made his international debut as a substitute in the 3-0 win.
He signed a one-year extension to his current contract in March to tie him to Tannadice until 2013 and the club are keen to keep hold of their prized asset.
A statement on the club's official website read: "Due to recent media speculation, chairman Stephen Thompson has issued the following statement.
"We have had no contact with Rangers FC since Monday 20th June and have not received a bid from them for David Goodwillie."
