The 27-year-old flew into Glasgow on Sunday for talks about a move to Ibrox and was an interested observer at Parkhead for the Old Firm game with Celtic.
Yakin has been looking for a new club after failing to settle at Stuttgart since his move from Basel last January.
Rangers boss Alex McLeish had hoped to bring in Yakin to bolster his midfield options, but both parties were unable to agree a deal.
Rangers director of football business Martin Bain revealed that the club would not be signing Yakin after talks.
"After various discussions, the parties involved have been unable to reach agreement and, as a result, this matter will progress no further," Bain told the club's official website.
