Brendan Rodgers has told The Scottish Sun that he would love to add around four more signings to his Celtic squad before the window closes.

The Hoops have so far made just one signing, with Moussa Dembele arriving from Fulham, but Rodgers is hoping that that will change very soon.

"How many would I like to bring in? Ideally I would like another four. We shall see if that's do-able," he told The Scottish Sun.

One of the possible signings could well be Manchester United defender Paddy McNair as Rodgers failed to deny that he was interested in pursuing a loan move for the Northern Ireland international, The Scottish Sun reports.

"I can't deny or say yes or no to that because there have been so many players who have been thrown our way or linked with Celtic. I can't comment on everyone," he told The Scottish Sun.

Rangers boss Mark Warburton has reiterated to Herald Scotland that he would like one or two more signings, and ideally would like to get them done before they begin their Scottish Premiership campaign next Saturday.

The Gers have made nine signings so far this summer, but Warburton has confirmed that he would like to take their number of arrivals into double figures.

"We need one or two more as we've said that for a number of weeks but you've got to get the right players in,” he told Herald Scotland. "We know what we want and if we can get it we'll make the move. I hope we can do it before next Saturday. They are working on it."

Niko Kranjcar has claimed that the sky is the limit for Gers teammate Barrie McKay, the Daily Record reports.

The winger was hugely impressive during the club's promotion season last term, and the Croatian is hoping to help him take his game to the next level.

"I think I can help Barrie and I want to do that, absolutely," he told the Record.

"I think he's a magnificent talent and the sky is the limit for him."

Kranjcar has told The Scottish Sun that the first thing he asked Mark Warburton when they discussed the idea of the winger moving to Ibrox was whether the club were targeting the title.

He explained that he could not turn down the opportunity to join a team of Rangers' stature, especially after learning of their target for the season.

He told The Scottish Sun: "The size of the club attracted me here. I didn't need anyone to explain to me what Rangers means. Everyone in the football world knows that. In the first meeting with the manager, my first question was 'Is the goal to win the title?'."

Finally, Barcelona coach Luis Enrique has tipped Celtic loanee Patrick Roberts to make it to the top of the game after his side came up against the winger in the Champions Cup, the Manchester Evening News reports.

"Patrick Roberts is a great player and he has a great future in the game," he told the Manchester Evening News.
