We bring you the latest news from Celtic and Rangers.

Celtic dressing room anger

Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon has revealed that words were exchanged in the Bhoys dressing room after their fixture against Motherwell at the weekend.

Celtic may have won the fixture 1-0, but there were a number of key players who were left frustrated by their display.  

“Virgil van Dijk had a few words, Stefan Johansen wasn’t happy we hadn’t finished the job off earlier," Gordon told the Daily Record. "There was a few but that’s good.”

Berget stay unlikely

Celtic are unlikely to turn Jo Inge Berget's loan move into a permanent one in January, according to Ronny Deila. 

Berget was brought in by the Scottish champions this summer, but has struggled to make an impact and Deila thinks his stay at Parkhead will end in the new-year, despite the club having an option to buy him.

"Jo Inge's loan contract finishes in January," Deila explained to the Scottish Evening Times. "We have not decided yet. But I think Jo Inge needs playing time and, therefore, he will look for other choices."

McGregor backs McCoist

Support for Rangers boss Ally McCoist has been dwindling in recent weeks, but Darren McGregor is hoping to relieve some of the pressure building on him.

The Light Blues have been in awful form since the start of the season, but McGregor insists that McCoist is not at fault. 

"The gaffer has been great with me," he said to the Evening Times. "He has taken me under his wing. He believes in me and that gives me confidence. I'm just hoping we can do our talking on the pitch.

"I'm sure he will deal with that. We just need to concentrate on what happens on the pitch and getting results for him. That will obviously ease the pressure on him."
