Neil Lennon has warned Hibernian midfielder John McGinn that a move to Celtic might never materialise. The Hibees boss says McGinn should prepare himself for a move not to happen, with the Easter Road club knocking back three offers for the midfielder from the champions.
However, McGinn has made it clear he sees his future at Celtic Park. If no fee can be agreed, the Scotland International says he is prepared to sit tight until January when he would be able to sign for his boyhood heroes on a pre-contract as a free agent.
Rangers could net a cash windfall of up to £800,000 from the sale of Martyn Waghorn. Derby County are preparing an £8million bid for the 28-year-old striker who left Ibrox for Ipswich in a £250,000 deal just 12 months ago.
Meanwhile, Lassana Coulibaly and Ryan Kent look set to make their Rangers debuts against Osijek in the Europa League tonight. Steven Gerrard is poised to make numerous changes with Josh Windass, Daniel Candeias and Ross McCrorie expected to drop out of the starting line-up.
Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers insists striker Odsonne Edouard is worth every penny of the £9million transfer fee they paid for him this summer. The Frenchman scored a brace in last night’s 3-1 victory over Rosenborg. He also said: “The club are working hard in terms of trying to get the quality we need in.” Rodgers stated he’s “aware” of Australian Daniel Arzani, who is linked with a loan move to Glasgow once he completes a switch to Manchester City.
Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has slapped down critics of Scottish football and told them they don’t have a clue about the SPFL.

Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack believes individual drills with Steven Gerrard and Gary McAllister can only help take his game to the next level.
“I have learned to be more selfish in the last year,” says Conor Sammon. The striker got off the mark for Motherwell after scoring twice for the Steelmen against Queen of the South on Tuesday.
Hibs defender Darren McGregor says his team have “a good opportunity” against Greek side Asteras Tripolis in the Europa League. He’s talked up the positive “domino effect” of Scottish clubs making progress in Europe.
On-loan Bournemouth teenager Mikael Ndjoli is sure he will leave Kilmarnock a much-improved player after scoring three goals in three games.
