Celtic & Rangers latest: Bhoys star says Parkhead is his home; McCoist believes Hearts more important than Old-Firm derby


We bring you the latest news from Celtic and Rangers.

Brown feels at home

Celtic captain Scott Brown says that he feels at home at Parkhead. 

The midfielder signed a new contract yesterday evening, to secure his future at the club until 2018, and the Scotland international couldn't be happier to be extending his stay with the Bhoys. 

"This is a place that I call home," Brown told the Herald.

"Being Celtic captain is a tremendous honour and it is a role which I cherish dearly. The team is in a great place just now and we're all right behind the manager and the backroom team as they build for the future."

Johansen pleased for Celtic form

Celtic midfielder Stefan Johansen is delighted with the form that the Bhoys have shown over recent weeks.

The Scottish champions made a slow start to the campaign, but have improved hugely and Johansen says that the team can be pleased with how they're performing. 

"We are getting results and still in every cup while being at the top of the league," Johansen told the Herald.

"We're doing well in the Euro league as well and hopefully we can get through there. Things are starting to look good."

McCoist league more important

Ally McCoist believes Rangers' game against Hearts this weekend is more important that the upcoming Old-Firm derby.

The Light Blues take on Celtic in the League Cup semi-final in the near future, but McCoist insists that match is now at the back of their minds because of the importance of beating Hearts. 

“I’m not joking, the League Cup semi-final against Celtic is secondary," McCoist said to the Daily Record.

“The most important thing is the journey back up. This season is as difficult as we expected with Hibs and Hearts around.

“We’re looking forward to the Celtic game but it is certainly on the back burner."
