We bring you the latest news from Celtic and Rangers.

Commons could start

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has hinted that Kris Commons could be in-line to start the club's match against Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League tonight. 

Commons is on his way back from injury and Deila is intending to play the attacking midfielder in the dead-rubber later this evening. 

“It’s possible Kris will start,” Deila admitted to the club's official site. “He has been injured for a while and he has come on a substitute in two or three games and is more ready for a start now."

Stokes will cost, says Deila

Anthony Stokes will only be allowed to leave Celtic if a club offers a big fee for his services, Ronny Deila says. 

Stokes has been linked with a move to Cardiff City in recent weeks, but Deila insists that the Bhoys are not looking to sell the forward. 

"If someone comes in with money where we can’t say no then we must think about it but they are all very expensive," the manager said to the Daily Record.

“Anthony is happy and I’ve been talking to him a lot. I’m not afraid. He’s under contract and I’m in control of the situation."

Clark wants chance

Rangers forward Nicky Clark is determined to start hitting the back of the net, even if he isn't getting the starting opportunities that he craves. 

Clark has had to make do with a number of substitute appearances this season, but he is not using it as an excuse for his goalscoring problems. 

"When I get a chance off the bench I need to make sure I do well and knick a goal when I get chances," he told the Scottish Evening Times
