LONDON (Reuters) - Glencore (GLEN.L) on Tuesday said it would review its options after Rio Tinto (RIO.L)(RIO.AX) said it was sticking to a recommendation of China-backed Yancoal (YAL.AX) as the preferred buyer of its Coal & Allied division in Australia.

In a statement, Glencore, which had made a higher offer than Yancoal, said it would respond "in due course".
