Rangers striker Nikica Jelavic has admitted he is flattered by the reported interest from Premier League giants Liverpool and would be “fine” should the Scottish Champions decide to sell him.

The 26-year-old has been in stunning form for Rangers following his move from Rapid Vienna in 2010, scoring 33 goals in just 46 starts. This has lead to interest from the Premiership with the likes of Everton, Sunderland, West Brom and Liverpool all thought to be keeping tabs on the forward.

The Croatian international insists that while he is happy in Glasgow, he would understand should the club decide to cash in on him due to their financial difficulties. It’s believed Rangers are wanting around £10m for Jelavic and the striker admitted he’s flattered by the interest shown in him by Liverpool, calling them “a great name”.

‘Every day it appears a new club wants me and that’s a little ridiculous,’ said Jelavic.

‘I know nothing about any offers. I just want to concentrate on Rangers.

‘I have another two-and-a-half years left of my contract but, if the club decides to sell me, because I know that we are in a difficult financial situation, then fine.

‘Of course I am flattered about Liverpool, but I do not know how much truth there is.

‘Therefore, I don’t pay attention because I do not want to create additional pressure. ‘My job is to play. Liverpool is a great name but, like I say, the question is how much are they really interested?’
