Celtic & Rangers latest: Bhoys' Kris Commons will command big fee

We bring you the latest news from Celtic and Rangers.

Celtic want bumper fee for Commons

Celtic midfielder Kris Commons will not be allowed to leave at a cut price in the January transfer window. 

The Bhoys ace sees his contract expire in the summer, but Ronny Deila's side are not interested in cashing-in on the experienced Scotland international. 

“Under no circumstances will Celtic be interested in selling Commons for an insulting figure," the Scotsman reports. "Crystal Palace paid £800,000 for Joe Ledley a year ago when he was coming to the end of his contract."

Palace, Leicester City and West Bromwich Albion are all said to be interested in Commons. 

Van Dijk focused on Celtic

With reports linking Virgil van Dijk with a move away from Celtic emerging every day it would have been forgivable had the Dutch defender been slightly distracted ahead of the January transfer window.

Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are all said to be interested in signing van Dijk at the next available opportunity, but his agent Henk Maarten Chin insists that he is only focusing on helping Celtic. 

"Virgil just wants to play football and talk only of his football at the minute," Maarten Chin said to the Scottish Evening Times

Ferguson on McCoist rumours

Former Rangers star Barry Ferguson believes that the side's current squad will be struggling to cope with uncertainty over Ally McCoist's future. 

McCoist has handed his resignation in at Ibrox and Ferguson feels that all the speculation over his future is not helping the Light Blues' form. 

"The heads of some guys in the Rangers dressing room will be all over the place," he said to the Daily Record. "They are never told what’s happening at their club from day to day and now they don’t even know what the future holds for their manager."
