Rodgers reveals chances of keeping Burke and Weah

Brendan Rodgers admits there’s zero chance of keeping Oliver Burke at Celtic Park beyond the summer, but does hold out hope that he may be able to keep Timothy Weah on a longer deal. Money would be a stumbling block in any pursuit of Burke. (Sunday Mail)

Gerrard on Power challenge

Rangers star attacked en route to hospital

Rangers loanee Greg Docherty was attacked in a car while being taken to hospital.

As he left the ground to go to hospital the car he was travelling in was pelted with objects. (Sun on Sunday)

McAllister on chances of keeping Kent

Rangers assistant boss Gary McAllister admits the ball is firmly in Liverpool’s court as to whether Rangers can keep Ryan Kent beyond this summer. The 22-year-old has been in great form this season and Rangers have stated their desire to keep him longer. However, with a contract that runs until 2022, he still very much remains a Liverpool player. (Sunday Mail)

Neilson blasts Collum

Dundee United boss Robbie Neilson claimed referee Willie Collum allowed his side’s win over St Mirren to turn into a kicking match by not sending off Saints skipper Paul McGinn for crashing into former team-mate Cammy Smith. Neilson was furious that Collum only produced a yellow card and his fury was compounded when the official did show a red to United’s Calum Butcher. (Various)
