Windass ‘could miss Old Firm game’

Rangers midfielder Josh Windass could end up sitting out the hotly anticipated clash with Celtic - after making an obscene gesture to Partick Thistle fans during the 2-2 draw on Friday night.

According to the Daily Record, ‘Windass is in the frame to be offered a one match ban – with a fast track panel hearing penned in for Thursday’ if Rangers decide to contest the suspension.

Sutton names two players Celtic could have signed

Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has accused Celtic’s head of recruitment Lee Congerton of ‘missing a trick’ by not identifying a defender during the transfer window.

Speaking on BT Sport on Friday, Sutton questioned Congerton’s role and highlighted Huddersfield signing Mathias Jorgensen and Hull’s on-loan Chelsea starlet Fikayo Tomori as two possibilities.

Sutton said: “You have loads on social media saying what difference a £10 million centre half would have made against PSG. Jorgensen signed for Huddersfield in the summer, he was available.

“Fikayo Tomori – he’s better than anything Celtic have got at the moment. So there are two centre halves I have named. What is Lee Congerton doing? What is his role at the club?” (Various)

Lennon set to ring changes for Betfred clash

Neil Lennon is set to shuffle his pack for the Betfred Cup clash with Livingston after being angered by Hibernian’s second-half collapse against Motherwell.

Lennon said: “There will be changes, how many I don’t know. We can’t push the panic button yet because we have been playing quite well.”

Potential changes could see Lithuanian pair Vykintas Slivka and Deivydas Matulevicius start while young defender Ryan Porteous and highly-rated midfielder Fraser Murray could be in contention as well. (The Scotsman)

Foster was enraged that whistler Alan Muir disallowed a Saints goal before awarding Dundee a controversial penalty.

And the former Rangers and Aberdeen defender is said to have put his foot through Muir’s dressing room door after the final whistle - and could face action if Muir includes it in his report. (Scottish Sun)
