Starlet tipped to reject Celtic for Rangers

Ex-Rangers star Alan Hutton reckons his former club can beat Celtic to the signing of Thomas Robert.

The French starlet, son of ex-Newcastle United star Laurent Robert, has been linked with a move to the Old Firm from Montpellier.

Hutton told Football Insider: “They’ve done really well in recruitment terms and they’ll be looking to keep that up. It looks like they’re going for a certain type of player – young, hungry, wants to prove something or got something to prove to really kick on and help Rangers match up with Celtic.

“We’re not silly now, we understand, even before this pandemic what was going on. Transfer fees weren’t going to be sky high so Rangers, probably more than Celtic, are looking to unearth these quality youngsters that have come through."

Ex-Thistle chief in Hearts job

Ex-Partick Thistle chairman Allan Cowan has aimed a jibe at Hearts.

Regarding the club's imminent demotion to the Championship he told the Daily Record “what goes around comes around”.

Cowan was referencing the Thistle's relegation in 2004 when Inverness CT were allowed to be be promoted despite their stadium not being fit for the top-flight at the time. It saw the club ground share with Aberdeen.

ICT were initially rejected from being promoted but Hearts and Hibs brought a second vote which was passed.
