Every so often in the Transfer Tavern, the punters will hear of a story that they all, no matter whom they support, hope comes off just for sheer shock factor.
While Kolo Toure remains a popular figure amongst the Liverpool supporting locals, reports that he was a shock target for Rangers had fans praying it was gospel, to see the cult-hero get one last big move.
However, according to the Daily Mail, the Gers are ready to pull the plug on their interest in the Ivorian and explore alternative options in an effort to draft in defensive reinforcements.
Ahead of their return to the top flight North of the Border, the Glasgow giants have embarked upon an ambitious recruitment drive in order to battle arch-rivals Celtic.
Having already landed Jordan Rossiter from the Merseyside giants, they have also brought Joey Barton to Ibrox and are continually on the lookout for new talent.
However, the former Arsenal and Manchester City defender won’t be a target, with the 35-year old believed to have interest emanating out of China as he nears the end of his deal at Anfield.
Should Toure be kept on another season at Liverpool?
