The death of entertainer Ronnie Corbett features prominantly on most of Friday's front pages.

The Daily Record and The Scottish Sun both carry a picture of the funnyman's famous chair and glasses with a headline taken from his Two Ronnies catchphrase...And it's goodnight from him.

The same story dominates the front page of the Scottish Daily Mail, where the paper asks why wasn't Ronnie Corbett knighted?

The Scotsman says Ronnie Corbett was hailed "a brilliant little man" after he died aged 85. It leads with Prime Minister David Cameron saying nationalising the steel industry won't save thousands of jobs.

Scotland is set to become one of the first countries in Europe to give legal recognition to people who are neither male or female, according to The Herald.

The Times also carries tributes to Ronnie Corbett and the story of two senior figures at Scottish mosques being investigated over alleged links to a terrorist group.

The National leads with an exclusive report on how a seven-year-old boy who was born in Australia but has lived in Dingwall for four years is now facing deportation along with his family.

The Press and Journal's North East Edition says the proposed closure of the Muller Milk factory in Aberdeen will "kill dairy farms".
