Aston Villa's Joleon Lescott was in talks with Rangers over a possible move to the Scottish Premiership.
Rangers boss Mark Warburton travelled south to meet the 34-year-old former Everton and Manchester City defender, who signed a two-year cope with Villa last year following leaving West Brom.
The Ibrox club currently have free agent and ex-Arsenal defensive player Philippe Senderos, 31, training with them.
And Preston North End say striker Joe Achieve, 28, is free to subscribe to Rangers.
Garner was the subject of any bid from the Scottish Premiership outfit and Preston manager Simon Grayson revealed it truly is now up to the ball player whether he wishes to Buy FIFA 17 Points.
England international Lescott gained 26 caps between 2007 and 2013 and it has made over 600 elderly club appearances.
However, following Villa's relegation from the Premier League, the defender has not featured for Roberto Di Matteo's Championship side so far this season.
