Rangers have reportedly made an approach to Hamilton Accies over the availability of midfielder Ali Crawford.

The 25-year-old is Hamilton’s top goalscorer this season and, although his contract does not expire until 2018, his manager Martin Canning has admitted they will likely lose the player to a bigger club at some point. (HITC)

Lansbury to Celtic

Celtic have been linked with a move for Nottingham Forest star Henri Lansbury.

The 26-year-old attacking midfielder is out of contract at the end of this season and could be signed on the cheap, however Aston Villa have also been credited with an interest. (Nottingham Post)

Rangers hunt for new striker

Mark Warburton is in the hunt for a new striker amid fears Joe Garner could be out for as long as three months with a shoulder injury.

The Ibrox manager will seek short-term cover for the forward, signed for £1.8m from Preston North End earlier this season. Rangers will know the full extent of the player’s injury next week. (Daily Mail)
