RANGERS could be set to finalise three deals this week, according to the Daily Record.

Pedro Caixinha is hoping to make fellow countryman Bruno Alves his first Ibrox signing, but the defender wouldn’t be available for early Europa League qualifiers due to being on international duty.

A deal for Aberdeen captain Ryan Jack should also be tied up soon, while talks are ongoing with Norwich over Graham Dorrans.

Celtic’s Kieran Tierney has been named in the 23-man Scotland squad for the upcoming clash against England.

The defender, who suffered a broken jaw after being caught by Aberdeen’s Jayden Stockley during the Scottish Cup Final, has been a standout for the Hoops this season and played in Scotland’s last match against Slovenia.

Another Celtic standout, Patrick Roberts, bids farewell to the club as his loan deal from Manchester City comes to an end.

 

The 20-year-old has proved a huge hit with the Parkhead faithful and won four trophies in his time at the club.


Birmingham City are interested in making a move for Aberdeen’s Jonny Hayes.

Hayes is contracted to the Dons until 2019, but Harry Redknapp watched the winger in action at Hampden against another of his suitors, Celtic. (Press & Journal)

Eagles chairman Steve Parish is believed to be taking time to consider his options before naming Palace’s next manager.
