Celtic and Rangers latest: Bhoys newboy feared transfer wouldn't happen, Templeton wants starting place

Celtic

We bring you the latest news from Celtic and Rangers.

John Guidetti didn't think Celtic transfer would happen

John Guidetti has admitted that he felt his transfer to Celtic wouldn't happen at one stage.

The Swedish striker's deal looked in jeopardy because the Bhoys didn't manage to announce it before deadline day and had to appeal to the Scottish FA for it to be sectioned. 

Thankfully for Guidetti, who has now joined on loan from Manchester City, and for Celtic their appeal was granted, but the powerful front-man has admitted he feared the move would never happen.

"Of course I was worried it might not happen," Guidetti said.

"I remember as I left here I was almost 100% sure it wasn't going to happen."

"But then it happened - and I'm buzzing."

Scott Brown to make combeack

Scott Brown could make his Celtic comeback tomorrow, after an incredibly quick recovery from a hamstring injury.

The Bhoys captain picked up the problem before the season started and was expected to be set for a lengthy absence, but there is hope that he could be in-line for a return against Aberdeen.

“Scott looks very well and he could maybe play on Saturday," Celtic boss, Ronny Deila, said. 

David Templeton doesn't want to be a super-sub

David Templeton is determined to shake off the tag of a super-sub and become a first team regular at Rangers. 

The winger's appearances are generally from the substitutes' bench, where he often has a good impact, but he is determined to make an impression from the start of games. 

"It's frustrating to be branded a supersub. It's not something you want to be known as," he explained. 

"I suppose it's better than coming on and not making any impact at all. But every player wants to be someone who starts every game and does well."

"Hopefully I can get back in now and make an impact from the start, rather than coming on and doing it."

Jon Daly back in Rangers contention

Rangers striker Jon Daly is on the verge of a return to first-team action. 

The 'Gers frontman has missed the start of the season after picking up a knee complaint, but he came through a reserve game in midweek and Ally McCoist has revealed that he could be in-line to be involved with the first-team tonight.

"He’s been training fine, so he will certainly come back into the reckoning," McCoist said.
