Rangers are weighing up a move to try and take Newcastle United striker Adam Armstrong on loan, according to The Scottish Sun.

Following Martyn Waghorn's injury, Mark Warburton's need for a new striker has become greater and The Scottish Sun claims that the Gers are hoping to use head of recruitment Frank McParland's experience of working alongside Magpies boss Rafael Benitez at Liverpool to help get a deal across the line.

Tottenham's Michel VormTottenham's Michel Vorm

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers is reportedly considering a move for Tottenham goalkeeper Michel Vorm, according to The Scotsman.

The 32-year-old worked under Rodgers at Swansea City, so may be tempted by a Parkhead switch if he decides that he wishes to leave Spurs this summer.

Celtic's James ForrestCeltic's James Forrest

James Forrest looks to be closing in on a new deal with the Hoops after The Scottish Sun claimed that his agent was meeting with the club to discuss the winger's future today.

The 25-year-old's current contract expires in January, but despite previously wanting to leave, it appears that Forrest could now commit his future to the club imminently.

One player who may be on his way out of Celtic Park before the window shuts is Darnell Fisher, after the Daily Record claimed that the defender was being targeted by Rotherham United.

The 22-year-old is well down the pecking order with the Bhoys so Rodgers may feel that a move is currently the best step for his career.

Raith boss Gary Locke has told the club's official website that he is delighted to see David Bates earn a loan move to Ibrox as part of the deal that saw Jordan Thompson heading in the opposite direction.

"I’m really pleased that young David is getting this opportunity," he told the club's official website. "It’s his big chance to prove how good he can be, and I will be getting reports from Mark and David on how he is performing,"

Finally, Barcelona Bear Colin Stein has told the Evening Times that the Light Blues' Scottish League Cup clash with Peterhead is a great fixture for summer signing Joe Dodoo to make his first start for Warburton's side.

"It would be a nice introduction for him. No disrespect to Peterhead but it would be a good game for Dodoo to come into," he told the Evening Times.
