  • Offer made for Celtic defender

Hatem Abd Elhamed primed for exit

Celtic defender Hatem Abd Elhamed could leave next month.

According to the Daily Record, former club Hapoel Be'er Sheva have made a loan offer for the unsettled defender.

Neil Lennon has ruled out a Celtic return for Fraser Forster.

The Northern Irishman doesn’t plan to add a goalkeeper to his squad despite criticism of his three stoppers, Scott Bain, Conor Hazard and summer signing Vasilis Barkas.

He said: "At the minute, I'm quite content."

Allardyce calls for Premier League circuit breaker

New West Brom boss Sam Allardyce has called for a circuit breaker in English football after a raft of positive cases of coronavirus in the Premier League and Football League.

Manchester City’s clash with Everton was called off due to Covid-19 tests returning positive results.

Allardyce said: "Everyone’s safety is more important than anything and when I hear variant virus transmits 70% quicker we can only do the right thing which would be to have a circuit breaker."

For Scottish football it will be something to keep an eye on in the coming days and weeks.
