We bring you the latest news from Celtic and Rangers.

Deila unwilling to listen to offers

Celtic manager Ronny Deila insists that Stefan Scepovic will not be allowed to leave the club, despite a poor start at Parkhead.

The striker, who signed from Sporting Gijon in the summer, has not looked up to the standard required since signing, but Deila believes that he will come good and won't let him move on loan. 

"That [a loan move] is not an option," he said to the Scottish Evening Times. "I'm not interested in that. Stefan has a future here. His chance will come."

Celtic injury update

Ronny Deila has provided an update on two of Celtic's injured players, Charlie Mulgrew and Mikael Lustig.

The Norwegian boss admits that he is no closer to setting a return date for Mulgrew, but was more positive about Lustig's progress. 

"I don't know how long Charlie will be out," he told the Scottish Evening Times. "His ribs are bruised and you never know with these things. We'll have to wait and see what is happening with him."

"Wth Mikael, he is not so far away. Maybe in one or two weeks he will be back."

Mohsni won't leave

Rangers man Bilel Mohsni says that he won't leave the club in January, because Ally McCoist is determined not to lose anyone from his playing staff.

The Tunisian international has attracted the interest of a number of teams, but he believes his future is at Ibrox.

"I've had many offers from French teams and England, but it's hard to leave my team in the next window because of my coach's decision," he explained to the Scottish Evening Times.

"He needs my services and the other players as we intend to compete for the Championship and for the cups."
