Aston Villa's Scott Sinclair
The Hoops have made numerous bids for the 27-year-old, but may now be much more encouraged about their chances of landing Sinclair following the reported drop in asking price.
Preston's Joe Garner
Rangers' reported pursuit of Preston North End striker Joe Garner has been dealt a blow as the Lancashire Evening Telegraph has claimed that the Lilywhites have absolutely no intention of the letting the 28-year-old leave this summer.
Wigan Athletic have also been linked with the forward - who has two years left on his deal at Deepdale - recently, the Lancashire Evening Telegraph reports.
Rangers manager Mark Warburton
Preston's desire to keep hold of Garner may well be one of the reasons that Mark Warburton has had to admit to Herald Scotland that it is unlikely that the Light Blues will be signing anymore players before they get their league campaign underway.
The Gers take on Hamilton next Saturday but Warburton has quashed almost all hope of another new signing being involved in the game.
"I don't think we'll get the players we’re looking for before the start of the league season," he told Herald Scotland.
"When they showed a bit of interest I was shocked to be honest," he told the club's official Youtube channel.
The youngster has another rival for a position in the side following the arrival of Kolo Toure, but he insisted that he has no plans to leave.
"I would rather take my chances at Celtic than go out on loan. It's a huge club. I have been here since I was 16. My main aim since I came here is to play here and make it here and that's hopefully what I'm going to do," he told the Evening Times.
Finally, ahead of their pre-season friendly with the Bhoys, Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has told the Daily Record that he wants Brendan Rodgers' men to qualify for the group-stages of the Champions League.
"We have had some games against Celtic that I will always remember, and they are a big club, with big fans, and I would like to see them qualify this year - it is where they belong," he told the Record.
