Rangers have hit out at Hibs for cutting their ticket allocation for the last league game of the season at Easter Road to less than 1500. They promised they will reply in kind. The Ibrox club have also called for Hibs to ensure the safety of their supporters.
Gordon Strachan says the Arsenal job would be easy for Brendan Rodgers, compared to bossing Celtic. The Northern Irishman is among the contenders to replace Arsene Wenger when the Frenchman’s 22-year reign ends.
Allan McGregor is considering a two-year contract to return to Rangers. This is despite current club Hull City offering him a new deal, but the 36-year-old would have to accept a drop in wages at Ibrox.
Hibs are close to securing the summer signing of Hamilton star Ali Crawford. The 26-year-old has confirmed he does not wish to sign a new contract with Accies after 11 years with the club.
Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham, who missed Sunday’s win over Hearts, has also been ruled out of this weekend’s potential “title-clincher” against Celtic.
Conor Sammon will be given a final chance to resurrect his Hearts career this summer and convince manager Craig Levein he should stay when the striker returns from his loan spell with Partick Thistle.

Stiliyan Petrov fears striker Moussa Dembele could lead an exodus of Celtic players who feel they are not being tested enough at domestic level. The former Hoops midfielder also believes Brendan Rodgers’ side are so far ahead of their domestic rivals that they could conceivably win the treble five years in a row.
Hearts are close to signing Inverness Caledonian Thistle winger Jake Mulraney in a swap deal involving midfielder Angus Beith.
Steven Gerrard, who is currently a youth coach at Liverpool, is now the odds-on favourite with bookmakers to become the next Rangers manager. It’s after Ibrox chairman Dave King was spotted at the Anfield club’s Champions League semi-final against Roma on Tuesday.
