Bizarre Rangers claim

Rangers set to lose starlet

Adedire Mebude is expected to leave Rangers for Manchester City, according to a report.

The teenage forward has reportedly turned down a deal to stay at Ibrox.

City could pay upwards of £100,000 in compensation.

Rangers, Aberdeen and Motherwell are set to be seeded for their first Europa League ties.

Seeding becomes more important with all qualifying ties played over just one leg with the draw deciding which team plays at home.

Accies duo sign deals

Manager in Old Firm target plea

Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson has called for a quick resolution to the Ivan Toney transfer saga.

The striker is in-demand down south and wanted by both Celtic and Rangers.

Celtic have already had a bid turned down for the player.

Ferguson said: "We will have to wait and see with Ivan and it could be a distraction if his situation rumbles on. That wouldn’t be ideal. It would be better if things were resolved quickly, but the owners quite rightly won’t sell him unless they get the right price so it could be we end up with the best striker in League One playing for us at the start of the season so I’m quite relaxed about it.

Ivan won’t play in the first friendlies, but if he is still here as the new season approaches I will have to play him. I can’t sign anyone until he leaves which again is not ideal as I would want as much time as possible with the player we bring in to replace him."
