Celtic and Rangers latest: Bhoys can afford £5m fee for target; McCoist doesn't fear Hearts


We bring you the latest news from Celtic and Rangers...

Deila on Guidetti fee

Celtic manager Ronny Deila insists that the club will have no problems paying John Guidetti's asking price, should they look to sign him on a permanent transfer.

Manchester City are reportedly asking for £5 million should any club wish to sign the talented Swedish youngster, but Deila is adamant that the Bhoys would have no problem reaching that price. 

"The fee would not be a problem," Deila told the Scottish Evening Times. "It is do-able."

Brown happy with new deal

After signing a new Celtic deal which will keep him at the club until the 2018, Scott Brown says that staying at Parkhead still gives him a great challenge. 

The Bhoys captain committed his future to the club this week with a new long-term contract, and he believes that he can still achieve further success.

"It's a great challenge to stay here," he told the Scottish Evening Times. "You have ups and downs but you've got to fight in your career.

"You can't leave when something's not going your way. You need to focus, work on getting better and win trophies."

McCoist on Hearts game

Rangers manager Ally McCoist says that he does not fear Hearts, ahead of their top of the table clash. 

The Light Blues face one of their biggest games in recent times, but McCoist has no fear about taking on the current Scottish Championship leaders.

“Being written off fires me up and I don’t have any doubt it fires the players up as well," he said to the Daily Record.

"There’s nothing Hearts have done since that terrifies us. We feel if we play to our capabilities we have enough to win."
