Kris Commons has taken aim Celtic for failing to keep hold of veteran keeper Craig Gordon.

Gordon, 37, announced his Hoops departure on Sunday night with Hearts and St Mirren in the mix to sign the Scotland international

“I believe they’re getting close to signing (Fraser) Forster. But they should have made a bigger effort to hold on to (Craig) Gordon,” Commons said to Record Sport.

"I was really angered by Gordon being offered reduced terms. He’s 37, not 45, and he’s been one of the best if not the best goalkeepers in Scotland over the past decade.

"If Celtic had been definitively ruled out of the running for Forster, I wouldn’t have had any hesitation in handing him the No 1 jersey.

"He clearly feels he needs first-team football to reclaim his Scotland place and, if Forster is coming back, he won’t get much of that at Celtic Park.

"But what happens if, over the coming days, Celtic lose out on their No 1 target? If it’s about money, Chelsea can offer Forster four times the wages available at Scotland’s richest club.

"Gordon’s departure now makes it more important than ever that Celtic push the boat out to get Forster back.

"For me, it’s just typical Celtic. They’ve always had this knack of trying to get players as cheap as possible, without bursting the bank.

“When you’re on the verge of ten in a row, you have to go that extra yard.”

Celtic eye Southampton stopper...

Celtic have launched an attempt sign Fraser Forster on a permanent deal from Southampton, according to reports.

The Scottish Sun reports Celtic are looking to do a permanent deal for England international, rather than taking him on loan again.

Southampton remain interested in Celtic’s Olivier Ntcham, and the Frenchman could be used as a makeweight.

Joe Hart is being considered as a potential replacement if a deal for Forster cannot be struck.

Rangers target open to a move this summer

Rangers target Terem Moffi has indicated he would be open to a move this summer,

However, the 21-year-old Nigerian admitted that he’d prefer to go to France or Spain after being linked with a switch to Ibrox alongside Galatasaray.

He told Het Laatste Nieuws: “I could have gone to Sweden, Norway or Israel.

“But I chose Belgium, because this way I can get to the big leagues more quickly.

“Where would I like to go? France or Spain, we’ll see...”

Rangers are also said to be targeting Lyle Taylor and Lyndon Dykes.

Neil Lennon eyeing ex-Manchester City man if Fraser Forster swoop fails

Celtic are eyeing a deal for ex-Manchester City and England star Joe Hart if the Scottish champions fail in their bid to re-sign Fraser Forster.

A senior Parkhead source revealed to the Record that talks will continue…

There were talks last week with Hart’s people and there are further discussions planned to take place before the weekend. It has all been very positive so far but obviously a lot is going to depend on what Fraser’s situation is at Southampton.

Some interesting transfer rumours and general gossip circulating this morning...
