Rovers reject striker approach

Dundee United's bid to re-sign former striker David Goodwillie on loan appears to have failed.

The Tangerines were hoping to recruit their one-time marksman from Blackburn Rovers ahead of the expected departure of Johnny Russell next week.

SPL rivals Hearts, Aberdeen and an unnamed Championship club are believed to be amongst those considering a move.
