We bring you the latest news from Celtic and Rangers.

Bitton promises 100%

Celtic midfielder Nir Bitton is attempting to stake his claim for a regular first-team place, with Charlie Mulgrew out of the team injured. 

Although the loss of Mulgrew is a big loss to the Bhoys it has given Bitton a chance for a run of game in the first-team and the Israeli international is determined to seize his opportunity.

"Every game that I play, I just try to do the best for Celtic and then for my future," Bitton said to the Scottish Evening Times. "Every game the gaffer gives me the chance, I will try to show him that I'm good enough to be in the team."

Wanyama missing Celtic

Former Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama says that he misses playing in the Champions League. 

The Kenyan midfielder was a key part of any success the Bhoys had in Europe during his time at Parkhead and he now wants to get back into the competition with his new club Southampton. 

“Everyone wants to play in the Champions League and that is our aim," Wanyama told the Daily Record. "I played in it with Celtic and getting a taste of it has made me want more. I miss the great European nights at Celtic."

Rangers attendances dwindle

Only 19,000 people attended Rangers' most recent game with Cowdenbeath, according to chairman David Somers. 

The Light Blues' form has put people off coming to Ibrox and although the club originally announced the figure at 28,000 in reality a lot fewer people that than turned up.

“The 28,000 included season ticket holders who were not there. In reality Saturday's attendance was around 19,000," Somers admitted to the Daily Record.
