Left-handed Lenses of Celtic
Celtic is interested in signing Greg Taylor of Kilmarnock and Birger Meling of Rosenborg before the deadline of next Monday, according to Sky Sports journalist Charles Paterson.
Kieran Tierney left the Hoops earlier this summer for a fee of around £ 25 million, joining the Arsenal.
And Neil Lennon wants another left back despite signing Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo this summer.
Paterson said: “There are a couple of lefties who are on the horizon of Celtic.
“One of them is Greg Taylor of Kilmarnock. He is a young player who has really thrived in Rugby Park in recent years, has been in the Scotland team.
“Are you ready to make the move and potentially replace Kieran Tierney? Can you ever replace Kieran Tierney? Maybe it’s a bigger question?
“According to reports, Kilmarnock has quoted Celtic for 3 million pounds. I understand from sources close to the player that the assessment is a bit unrealistic.
“Nurnberg was interested in Taylor in the summer and they were quoted a much lower figure than that, so it depends on whether the two clubs or not, if there is an offer coming in because there has not yet been a Celtic offer, if they can reach an agreement “.
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has decided his position on the future of Jan Vertonghen and Serge Aurier, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Belgian Vertonghen has not yet played for the Spurs this season, as he was absent from the team completely for the home victory over Aston Villa on the first weekend of the Premier League.
Meanwhile, Aurier was not in the squad in the loss to Newcastle yesterday, as he was also excluded from the 18-man squad against Man City.
But while Pochettino is willing to unload Aurier, with Kyle Walker-Peters as his preferred right back and Juan Foyth and Moussa Sissoko able to replace him there, he is convinced he wants to stay with Vertonghen.
Neymar wanted to come back
The president of La Liga, Javier Tebas, admits that he would welcome Neymar to the highest category in Spain, either at Real Madrid or in Barcelona.
The Brazilian played for Barça for four years and is now linked to a comeback after only two seasons with Paris Saint-Germain in France.
And Thebes told Marca: “Neymar, with all his things, is among the three best players in the world. Back would be very important for La Liga, although it would not be decisive for the Spanish league.”
“The decisive thing is that we play 10 months a year, 20 teams, all against all and generate passion and joy for fans of Spain and the rest of the world every weekend.”
“A player like Neymar tracks you in countries that are attentive to him, but he is not an essential element, nor was Cristiano Ronaldo.
“[Lionel] Messi, on the other hand, is more essential because it is the heritage of La Liga.”
Alfredo Morelos warning
Rangers chief Steven Gerrard has been warned by former Light Blues assistant manager Ian Durrant that he should hold on to Alfredo Morelos this summer or risk greater Celtic supremacy.
Gerrard’s team finished second behind Celtic in the Scottish Premier League last year, but they hope to end a nine-year drought without a top-notch league title this season.
And Durrant, who has been in several managerial positions at Rangers before, believes his former team will need to keep Morelos or they will be left behind than their fearsome Celtic rivals.
“It’s all,” Durrant said after staying with Morelos.
“For both sides of the Old Firm, and if you look at Aberdeen with (Scott) McKenna, it is important that any team keep its best players.”
“The Rangers are going all this year now. They are in a good place in Europe, second behind Celtic as opposed to goals, and Gary McAllister was saying they have a team to compete on all fronts.”
“If you’re going to win things, if you’re going to win leagues and cups and have a good run in Europe, you need to keep your best players. Morelos is a key factor in that.”
“The manager was saying there could be an offer for (James) Tavernier or Morelos, so he wants to defend himself and keep the strongest squad he can.”
“Hopefully everything is calm and the Rang
