We bring you the latest news from Celtic and Rangers.

Stefan Scepovic trying to force through Celtic move

Stefan Scepovic is attempting to force through a move to Celtic, according to the Daily Record.

The £3 million rated Sporting Gijon striker is close to a switch to Scotland and has requested to train alone to try and quicken up the deal.

The powerful front-man was not in Gijon’s squad for their match at the weekend and his latest move looks set to edge him even closer to a departure.

Callum McGregor called up to Scotland

Callum McGregor has been called up to the Scotland squad for their European qualifying match against Germany, which takes place on September 7th.

The international recognition for McGregor comes as a result of his fine club form for Celtic.

The young midfielder has netted four times for the Bhoys already this season and appears to have established himself as a first-team regular at Parkhead.

McCoist denies Palace speculation

Rangers boss Ally McCoist has dismissed speculation linking him to Crystal Palace.

Palace are looking for a new manager after Tony Pulis left last week and McCoist has emerged as a potential candidate.

However, the ‘Gers boss was quick to state that he still has a job to do at Ibrox and he had no idea where the rumours had came from.

"There has been no contact at all with Crystal Palace,” McCoist said.

"Anyone who knows me will be aware that I am desperately keen to get the job here completed.”

Andy Graham blames referee for defeat

Dumbarton defender Andy Graham believes his side would have had a chance of beating Rangers if Bilel Mohsni had been sent off.

The aggressive defender fortunately avoided a red-card after bringing down Scott Agnew and Graham believes if the correct decision had been made Sons may have been able to comeback.

"I have definitely seen them given for less," he said. "It was at a crucial point in the game as well. It was 2-0, we were still in the game. If Rangers had gone down to 10 men then we could have pressed the game."

In the end, Dumbarton lost the game 4-1 with Rangers continuing their impressive recent form after a slow start.

Should Mohsni have been sent off? Is McGregor good enough for Scotland?
