No Hoops move for Fraser

Parkhead is not thought to be the likely destination for Scotland winger Ryan Fraser, despite some bookmakers pricing Celtic as odds-on to sign the out-of-contract Bournemouth star. Fraser refused to sign a new deal to see out the end of the 2019/20 campaign but is believed to be eyeing a six-figure salary at an English club. (The Sun)

Forster a priority

Celtic have prioritised the permanent signing of Fraser Forster as Neil Lennon looks to bolster his squad ahead of the new season. The former Hoops shot-stopper returned on loan last season and helped Celtic to the Betfred Cup and their ninth league title - and now the Parkhead side wants him back for good and are said to be willing to break the bank to strike a deal.
