Tony Mowbray has made it clear that he has no intention of allowing Jonathan Greening to join Rangers.
The SPL giants have been linked with a summer swoop for the midfielder, but will face a tough task to prise him away from the Hawthorns.
The former Manchester United winger was made Baggies skipper last season, and became the first captain in 88 years to lift a Championship trophy for the club as he helped guide them into the Premier League.
Greening was an ever present on route to the title success and his manager insists that he has no plans to part with the man he will hand the task of leading the club in the top flight next season.
"Jonathan has the respect of the rest of the players because of his ability and because of the way he is. He is not hot-headed, he is very calm and a good footballer. He is someone I can talk to on a level," Mowbray told the Express and Star.
"He was given the captaincy last season because he brings just about everything I like in a footballer. In his own way he shows great responsibility.
"Captains don't always need to be charging around the pitch, clattering into people, shouting or shaking their fist.
"He listens and takes it in. I don't envisage any changes and I am not looking for another captain. Jonathan has just led this team to the Championship title."
