Rangers' proposed move for Aston Villa's Joleon Lescott is off after the defender failed his medical, BBC Scotland understands.

The 34-year-old ex-England centre-half had been offered a two-year contract at Ibrox and had been expected to sign once he passed his medical in Glasgow.

Villa chairman Dr Tony Xia wrote on Twitterexternal-link that there had been "no problem" with the medical.

Rangers may decide to offer Philippe Senderos a contract.

The 31-year-old Swiss defender has been training at Murray Park after leaving Grasshoppers in his homeland.
