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, Kyle Lafferty’s agent will try to broker a deal between Hearts and Rangers to ensure his client gets his move to Ibrox. Tynecastle captain, Christophe Berra, told the Scottish Sun that his side will cope just fine if their main striker decided to leave the club and head back to Glasgow.
The Edinburgh Evening News are reporting that 50 Hibs fans have had their flight to Greece cancelled after the chartered airline pulled out of the trip.
Celtic captain Scott Brown has, perhaps a little bizarrely, said he’d trust Brendan Rodgers “with his life” before stating that the team will be just fine if the Scottish champions don’t invest in new players before the end of the transfer window.
Graeme Shinnie has told the Daily Record that getting a result against Burnley in this week’s Europa League tie won’t be about going “hell for leather straight away” and will instead require patience.
Paul Hartley has stated that we’ll “never see a smoother transition,” than Motherwell’s decision to transfer the club captaincy from Carl McHugh to himself for this coming season. “Carl McHugh is literally my best mate in football so to get the armband from him is an honour,” said the central defender.
St Johnstone captain Joe Shaughnessy still hasn’t recovered from a bicycle accent during the club’s pre-season training camp in Austria and won’t feature in Saturday’s opening Scottish Premiership match against Kilmarnock.
James Tavernier has stated that Steven Gerrard’s Rangers side will be looking to challenge for every title this season. Speaking to the Evening Times, the defender said: “We want to be there all the way in the league and everyone wants to win the cups. That’s our aim.”
In today’s column for the Edinburgh Evening News, Kevan Christie has suggested that Hibs fans move away from the recent “bohemian, hipster schtick” concept of glorifying the club’s Leith background, because it’s a modern conception based on the popularity of the film Trainspotting and a certain Proclaimers song.
