We bring you the latest news from Celtic and Rangers.

John Guidetti prepared to wait for Celtic move

John Guidetti has said that he is prepared to wait until January to complete his Celtic move.

The Bhoys are nervously waiting to find out if they have been able to secure him this summer – after sorting out his transfer went beyond the deadline on September 1st.

They can be slightly more relaxed over the Scottish FA’s decision, though, as the Manchester City man says that he will move in January if the worst case scenario does occur.

“If it happens fantastic and if it doesn’t, I still belong to a great club in Manchester where I will fight for a place,” he said.

“I miss getting to play games, it’s what I live for.

“There is nothing to beat scoring in front of 50,000 fans.

“I cannot just give up so if it is six months I’ll just accept it.”

Virgil Van Dijk hoping for Holland debut

Celtic defender Virgil Van Dijk is aiming to make his Holland debut this week after being able to join up with the squad yesterday.

The Celtic man originally could not join his international teammates as his wife was in labour but, after a successful birth of his child, he has now been able to return to international training.

Holland take on Italy this week and the defender will be aiming to make his first appearance, to cap off a great week.

Darren McGregor wants centre-back role

Darren McGregor says that he is happy to help out at right-back, but feels his future remains in the heart of the defence.

McGregor has had to fill in at full-back after an injury crisis at Ibrox and done a stellar job, but he is still hoping to for a return to his more familiar position soon.

"I will play wherever the manager wants me to but my preference is to play at centre-half,” he said.

"It will be difficult to get a game there as we have a lot of quality players and internationalists at this club. But I'll keep working hard and we will see what comes of it."

McCoist wants international stars back unscathed

Ally McCoist is hoping that his trio of international stars return to Rangers unscathed after the international break.

The Gers boss has seen Lewis Macleod, Bilel Mohsni and Marius Zaliukas depart to join their respective nations and he is hoping that there are no injury concerns when they return to club football.

"I just hope the three lads on international duty come back with a clean bill of health and we'll be raring to go again,” he said.
