Ex-Liverpool ace open to Rangers move

Ex-Liverpool star Ryan Babel would be open to a move to Rangers.

The Ajax forward, on loan from Galatasaray, admitted in an Instragram Q&A that if he had the choice of a move to Scotland he would join the Ibrox club, for one reason.

He said: “I think I would play for Rangers just for the fact that Steven Gerrard is the coach."

With 63 caps for the Netherlands, Babel is contracted with the Turkish giants until 2022.

SPFL to release Rangers rebuttal

The SPFL will respond to Rangers' dossier in a letter to clubs in the coming hours.

According to the Scottish Sun, the organisation's chairman Murdoch MacLennan will offer a “firm rebuttal”.

The Ibrox club released their long-awaited dossier against the SPFL on Thursday.

Arzani targets Celtic exit

Celtic forward Daniel Arzani will look to move elsewhere once his loan deal ends.

The Australian has been on loan at Parkhead since 2018 but has played just twice due to injury.

He is now keen on a loan to the Netherlands.

Arzani told The World Game: “Holland comes up because it’s a selling league and they develop a lot of really good talent. But they’re not the only league to have done that. It’s been a really tough last two seasons for me. Celtic ’s been tough, there are a lot of good people there and it’s a good club, but the most important thing is game time and I wasn’t getting that.

“I was getting frustrated with injuries and things like that and the most important thing now is to look forward and go somewhere I think I’ll get game time.”
