Rangers’ fire sale

Rangers have drawn up a list of available players and circulated it around clubs in English football. Though manager Pedro Caixinha is looking to completely reshape his squad, his hands are tied by the fact that most of the players he inherited are under contract through next season. Rangers are looking for only £2m for Barrie McKay, while James Tavenier would be available at £1.2m. Others, such as Martyn Waghorn, Josh Windass, Matt Crooks and Harry Forrester, would be available for six-figure sums. (Daily Record)
