Rangers consider Tilt

Rangers are considering a move for Curtis Tilt if they are unsuccessful in their approach for Millwall centre-back Jake Cooper. The Ibrox club have made a £3million bid for the player, but it remains to be seen whether that will be enough to convince Millwall to let him go. Blackpool defender Tilt represents another option if Cooper stays in London. (Scottish Sun)

Boyata for contract talks

Celtic will look to negotiate a new contract with Dedryck Boyata as soon as the defender has returned from a two-week break following Belgium’s World Cup campaign. The centre-back has just one year left on his current deal and the Parkhead club are eager to get him tied down on a new and improved long-term contract. (Daily Record)
