Scottish Football LIVE: Old Firm battle for EPL French youngster, Betfred Cup set for October, Rangers eye free agent, Celtic urged to splash cash on forward

All the latest news, transfer speculation and more from around the SPFL

It has been quite the week in Scottish football but nothing we are not used to, especially since football entered shutdown. League reconstruction has failed, there have been statements and discussions, legal challenges and now threats of expulsion. Even without football there is no shortage of action.

On Monday professional sport can resume in Scotland but we will need to wait until August for the return of competitive action. The English Premier League will fill the need for football but it isn’t quite the same as watching your own team.

Old Firm battle for Manchester United starlet

Rangers and Celtic have been credited with an interest in Manchester United youngster Aliou Traoré.

According to reports in France, the goalscoring midfielder is interesting clubs around Europe including Benfica.

The 19-year-old is a French youth international and has a contract until 2021.

Betfred Cup set for October start?

Queen of the South have revealed that the Betfred Cup group stage has been “pencilled in" for October.

Hibs remain in talks with players

Ranger eye Man Utd teen

Rangers have entered what appears to be a competitive race for former Manchester United youngster Dion McGhee.

According to the Daily Star, the Ibrox club are one of a number of teams from the UK and Europe, including Benfica and Porto, who are keen on the 19-year-old midfielder.

McGhee is a free agent after leaving United despite the offer of a new deal. Rangers would have to pay a development fee but it would be less than what English teams need to pay.

Celtic urged to buy Elyounoussi

Former Celtic ace Vidar Riseth has urged the club to buy fellow countryman Mohamed Elyounoussi.

The Norwegian attacker returned to training at Parkhead ahead of his loan deal from Southampton expiring.

Riseth would like to see the forward stay in Glasgow.

He told the Daily Record: “I speak with him a lot and we had a good chat when I was in Glasgow earlier this year. He is really happy at Celtic – he loves it.

“I know he cost Southampton a lot of money but I don’t think he would be quite as much now. I wouldn’t want to put a price on him but some players are worth spending money on. He is definitely one of them as he would be a great investment.

“He is the kind of important signing that can help win the league. If Celtic got him on a four or five-year deal there is no way they would lose out in the long term. His value is only going to go up again."

No Rangers move for Kamberi

Rangers are yet to make a move for Florian Kamberi.

Hibs are keen to sell the player due to help with the club’s finances. A move to England is more likely.
