Rangers eye Sergi Canos
Could Sergi Canos follow Jordan Rossiter to Rangers?
Liverpool recently lost promising youngster Rossiter to the Gers for only £250,000 after the midfielder decided not to renew his Anfield contract.
Canos is currently in contract talks with the Reds, but has also been linked to Rangers, Reading, Fulham and Brentford, where he’s just spent a very productive season, making 38 Championship appearances and scoring seven goals. (Independent)
Gers unhappy with Brendan Rodgers move
Former Rangers manager Stuart McCall has told BBC 5 Live that a couple of the Rangers players aren’t too happy about Brendan McCall’s move to Celtic.
“I have just been up at the Rangers hotel picking up a couple of tickets for tomorrow, spoke to a couple of players. I think they are pretty disappointed that Celtic have got Rodgers, I have got to say.” (BBC 5 Live)
Lee Wallace in doubt for Scotland
Lee Wallace has cast doubt on his involvement in Scotland’s end-of-season matches against Italy and France.
The Rangers captain was recalled to the senior international squad by Gordon Strachan last week after an absence of almost three years.
Despite being ever-present for Rangers this season, the 29-year-old says he has an ongoing knee problem which requires rest. (Scotsman)
Rangers could be rusty: Stubbs
Hibs boss Alan Stubbs says Rangers may suffer from their long lay-off at today’s Scottish Cup final.
“I don’t think it’s ideal for a team. The schedule [between the end of the regular season and the cup final] is more geared towards a Championship team not being in the final,” he said. (Edinburgh Evening News)
Hearts want Jordan McGhee to stay put
Hearts expect defender Jordan McGhee to stay at Tynecastle and push for a regular first-team place next season.
Hearts boss Robbie Neilson told the Evening News he wants a good squad going into Europe.
“Jordan has matured a little bit so he’ll be back with the squad. I don’t see any change in that. I see him staying for next season, playing more games and pushing to try and get a regular spot.”
