We bring you the latest news from Celtic and Rangers.

Ronny Deila delighted by new signing

Celtic manager Ronny Deila is delighted the club have managed to sign Mubarak Wakaso.

The Ghanaian international winger joined the Bhoys on a season-long-loan this week and Deila says that his arrival will help the side out massively, as he offers qualities that they have been missing.

“We've been looking for speed and hardworking wingers, with good deliveries and he is a good player with good experience as well,” the under pressure boss said to the club’s official site.

“He will be a new player coming into the squad who will strengthen us and I’m looking forward to seeing him on the pitch.”

Wakaso wants Celtic debut

Mubarak Wakaso may have been at Celtic less than 24 hours, but he is already looking forward to getting started at Parkhead.

The 24-year-old joined from Rubin Kazan yesterday and now wants to provide Bhoys fans with some much needed excitement after they were dumped out of the Champions League.

"I am happy to have signed on loan at Celtic for the season,” he said.

"I can't wait to get started with the Hoops."

Lee McCulloch enjoying central midfield role

Lee McCulloch says he is enjoying the new role which he is playing in the side in central-midfield.

The experienced ‘Gers man, who normally plays at centre-back, has impressed in the middle of the field and he says that should Ally McCoist choose to use him there more often from now on he would be happy to play there.

"I love playing in midfield," McCulloch said. "It's different but I enjoy playing in there alongside Nicky Law."

"The legs aren't a problem in there, it's just about keeping form. I'm one of the fittest in the team, so it's no problem for me to play in there."

Lewis Macleod happy with role

As with his teammate Lee McCulloch, Lewis Macleod says that he is happy with the role given to him by Ally McCoist at Rangers.

The talented youngster has impressed during his time in the first team so far, but has been played in a wide midfield position rather than his preferred central midfield role.

However, the 20-year-old says that he is just happy to be involved with the first team and not too concerned about where he plays.

"As long as I am in the Rangers team I am always happy," he said in an interview with the Evening Times. "Obviously, you would prefer to play in your correct position. But I would play left or right or anywhere in midfield. I am pleased just to be involved in the games."

Should Macleod get central-midfield role? Are you excited by Wakaso's addition?
