Joleon Lescott's proposed move to Rangers has fallen through after the defender decided not to join the club due to family reasons, according to Sky Sports.

The 34-year-old met with Mark Warburton and underwent a medical at Ibrox, but ultimately decided against a move, Sky Sports reports.

Warburton appears to have taken little time to alter his plans however, as The Scottish Sun reports that the Gers now look set to sign Philippe Senderos on a two-year contract.

The former Arsenal man had been training with the club, and has clearly done enough to impress as The Scottish Sun suggests a deal is now imminent.

The Daily Mail has claimed that Joe Garner is not expected to complete his move to the Light Blues until Monday.

The striker underwent a medical on Friday, but the Mail claims that the 28-year-old changing his agent has led to the delay in the move being finalised.

Werder Bremen are interested in signing Celtic defender Emilio Izaguirre, according to Sky Sports.

The 30-year-old is beginning his seventh season with the Hoops, but may relish the idea of a change of scene following the emergence of Kieran Tierney.

The Daily Mail is claiming that Jozo Simunovic is no longer one of Torino's main targets, despite the Serie A side previously considering a £4.5m bid for the defender.

The Mail suggests that they are too concerned about the centre-back's fitness. 

Finally, Craig Gordon has told the Daily Mail that he is looking forward to the challenge of competing with Dorus de Vries for a place in Brendan Rodgers' side.

"I think we can work well together in training to push each other. But there is only one place at the end of the week for each game," he told the Mail.
