Lee Wallace says Rangers players felt like failures after draw with Hamilton
Lee Wallace admitted that he and his team mates felt like failures following their 1 - 1 draw in their opening game of the season at Ibrox.
He said: “It was a disappointing result. It’s one we could have down without especially on an occasion like this. Our fans were superb. On that aspect we feel we’ve failed because we haven’t sent our supporters home happy.”
The Rangers defender then gave credit to Hamilton saying they “worked their socks off”. (Sunday Mail)
Joey Barton admits Hamilton could have won the game
Rangers midfielder Joey Barton has admitted to the club’s official website that Hamilton Academical could have won against his side at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon.
He said: ““It was tough, Hamilton came here and acquitted themselves really well,” Barton told Rangers’ official website. “They scored a great goal on the counter-attack and they came for a result and we have to give them a lot of credit. They executed their game plan quite well.
“It could have been a smash and grab and Hamilton could have won that game today, so we’ve showed a lot of character.”
Scott Sinclair could make his Celtic debut against Hearts at Tynecastle this afternoon
Scott Sinclair, who rejoins his former Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers completed his £3.5million move from Aston Villa yesterday after agreeing a four-year contract.
Sinclair, who passed a medical in Glasgow yesterday morning, is said to be fully fit and ready to play after fully taking part in Villa’s pre-season.
Celtic were still waiting for clearance late last night to allow the ex-Manchester City winger to play at least part of the game in Edinburgh. (CQN)

Neil Lennon slaps £5m price tag on Jason Cummings but admits they don’t want to sell him
Neil Lennon has said it will take as much as £5m to prise Jason Cummings away from Hibs but admits that even should that price tag be met they still might not sell him.
The Edinburgh side have already knocked back a £1.7m bid from Peterborough. Lennon said: “We have no need to sell. From my experience everyone has a price but I doubt there are many clubs who could meet our valuation of Jason.
“If someone comes in with a ridiculous offer then the club have something to think about. What’s ridiculous? I don’t know... £5m? Jason is happy here.” (Sunday Mail)
