Brendan Rodgers' desire to bring a new goalkeeper into his Celtic squad has seen him turn his attention to Nottingham Forest stopper Dorus De Vries, The Scottish Sun reports.

The Dutchman played under Rodgers at Swansea so could follow in Scott Sinclair and Kolo Toure's footsteps by linking up with his old boss this summer.

Jozo Simunovic could possibly be on his way out of Parkhead this summer as Tuttomercatoweb reports that Serie A side Torino are interested in signing the centre-back.

The youngster was only able to show glimpses of his talent during his first season with the Scottish Premiership side as he struggled to stay fit.

Mark Warburton has told the Scotsman that Rangers do not need to spend millions to be able to compete with their Old Firm foes.

While Rodgers has overseen the £3m-plus signing of Scott Sinclair, the Gers boss has brought several players in on free transfers, but he insisted that they will offer value.

"It's not about how much you spend, it's how you spend the money you have got. It's not always about the big sums. Sometimes the best business is done for small fees," he told the Scotsman.

Warburton has also told The Scottish Sun that his side could well have a new signing in their line-up for their clash with Dundee on Saturday.

Though he did hint that it would be ambitious to get a deal done, he certainly did not rule out a potential addition.

"Maybe, fingers crossed," he told The Scottish Sun.

One summer signing who has already come in for criticism at Ibrox is Niko Kranjcar after a lacklustre display in their first league of the season.

However, the Croatian has received the backing of Clint Hill, who insisted to the Daily Mail that the winger does want to prove himself for his new club.

"Niko's a top player and he wants to do well. He fully relishes the opportunity that he's got at Rangers, like every other player," he told the Mail.

Finally, Aidan Nesbitt has told the Herald Scotland that Brendan Rodgers' track record for giving youngsters a chance gives him hope about his Bhoys future once he returns from his loan spell at Morton.

"It obviously gives me confidence to see what the manager's done for young talent at Liverpool, and hopefully I can do the same," he told the Herald Scotland.
