Scottish Football LIVE - latest news, transfer speculation and more (18/08/20)

  • Celtic favourites to land defender
  • Rangers advised to add midfielder

One-time Rangers target wanted by EPL sides

Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster is wanted by a slew of Premier League sides.

The youngster has been linked with a move to Rangers in the past.

But according to Goal.com Aston Villa, Newcastle, Burnley, Brighton, Fulham and Crystal Palace are all interested after he performed well for Swansea during a loan spell last season.

DONE DEAL: Alston returns to Falkirk

Celtic to return for David Turnbull

Celtic are preparing a move for David Turnbull, according to the Scottish Sun.

The Motherwell ace was close to a move to Parkhead last summer before the £3.75m switch fell through due to knee issues.

Celtic have had the player watched recently and it is understood they will likely make a move later in the window.

Celtic in offer for Robin Olsen

According to reports in Italy, Celtic have made the ‘most concrete’ offer for Roma goalkeeper Robin Olsen.

Despite the arrival of Vasilis Barkas from AEK Athens, Celtic are still keen on the Swedish international on loan.

The keeper was bought for €8.5m as an Alisson Becker replacement but has struggled in Rome. 

Roma, however, are not keen on Celtic’s loan offer where they would pay just 50 per cent of his wages. 

Rangers legend wants midfielder signing

Rangers legend Brian Laudrup believes the club need to sign another creative midfielder.

The Danish ace watched as the team struggled to break down Livingston on Sunday with Joe Aribo missing.

He told the Daily Mail: " "Aribo's close control is excellent. Even in tight spaces he can take players on or produce a piece of skill to bring someone else into the game. There were times on Sunday when that could have been invaluable to unlocking something for Rangers.

“I know Gerrard has been speaking about adding another midfielder. That will be really interesting because perhaps they need one who can offer that bit more creativity if Aribo isn't available. Those players tend to cost, but there will be some out there who could help the squad.”

Celtic favourite to sign Duffy

Celtic are favourites to land Republic of Ireland centre-back Shane Duffy.

SkyBet have installed the Hoops as 8/13 to sign the Brighton player.

Duffy has been linked with a loan switch, while there is reported interest from the Premier League.

Neil Lennon refused to comment on the speculation on Monday.
