Walter Smith insists no deal has been arranged for Rangers full-back Alan Hutton to join Tottenham Hotspur in the summer.
Hutton rejected a move to White Hart Lane earlier this month after Rangers accepted an offer of £8million.
Rumours have been rumbling throughout the transfer window that Hutton has had a change of heart and is now keen to join Spurs.
But Gers manager Smith says there has been no U-turn from the Scotland international and there is no agreement in place for the end of the season.
"There is no end of the season transfer or anything tied up with Tottenham at the moment," said Smith.
"The situation is the same as it was a couple of weeks ago. It's Alan's decision and, from the footballing side of things, we are delighted.
"He has been doing exceptionally well for us and we wouldn't want to lose anyone we felt was doing exceptionally well.
"Everybody considers the fee a terrific fee for a full-back and your hand is forced in the respect that anyone would accept an offer of that magnitude, but he is still playing for us and he will play tomorrow."
