Rise and shine! Every morning we rundown all of the top headlines in Scottish football and fill you in on what you need to know and what isn’t all that important. This is TL;DR news.
According to the Daily Record, Motherwell have rejected a “five-figure sum” for Ryan Bowman from Grimsby Town because the offer was way below their valuation of the player.
Celtic will sit down and begin contract negotiations with central defender Dedryck Boyata when he returns from the World Cup, according to the Herald. The Belgian international’s current deal expires next summer.
According to the Edinburgh Evening news, Brendan Rodgers is still hopeful of signing John McGinn. Even though Celtic’s last offer of £1.75 million was far short of Hibernian’s £4 million valuation of the player.
Dominic Solanke has distanced himself with a possible loan move to Rangers this season by stating that he hopes to stay at Liverpool and fight for regular first team football.
Celtic young forward, Mikey Johnston, has stated that he currently faces a “dilemma” as to whether he should stay at the club and fight for a first team spot or go out on loan and pick up more game time.
David Bates has stated that the “German league is a completely different level,” and that he is happy he pushed himself out of his comfort zone by moving to Hamburg. The former Rangers defender featured for his new club at the weekend in their 2-1 win over Rapid Vienna on Saturday.
Hearts assistant manager Austin MacPhee will meet with the club’s board to negotiate a new contract after being offered a managerial job by Indian Super League club Pune City, according to the Edinburgh Evening News.
Rangers may turn their attention towards Blackpool central defender Curtis Tilt if they can’t sign Millwall’s Jake Cooper, according to the Scottish Sun.
Moussa Dembele apparently “trolled” England fans on Sunday by tweeting the tweet posted below after France won the World Cup. Perhaps the Celtic striker was simply alluding to the fact that the man that came up with the global competition, Jules Rimet, was actually French and that in many ways Paris was the real spiritual home of the game.
It’s Really coming home 🇫🇷 😄⭐️⭐️#Fiersdetrebleu
