  3. Rangers can still sign big names - Warburton

    Speaking after former Ibrox midfielder Joey Barton discussed his time in Glasgow on BBC 5live last night, Rangers manager Mark Warburton insists the club are "still capable" of signing big-name players.

    "It's a big club," said Warburton. "It's not about Joey or myself. Rangers is a magnificent club, a fantastic football institution.

    "There is no doubt there is huge selling points to Rangers.

    "We're not going to outbid big clubs down south for players in terms of the financial aspect, but we can demonstrate what Rangers has to offer in terms of the training complex, an iconic stadium and a magnificent support with 50,000 fans, so there's a lot to enjoy about Rangers.

    "Are we still capable of signing someone of Joey's calibre? Absolutely, no doubt."

  4. Jags must have belief against Celtic - Archibald

    Partick Thistle manager Alan Archibald acknowledges Celtic have improved greatly this season but says his side must believe "they're not unbeatable".

    "There's no doubt they've upped it a level," he told BBC Scotland. "Their performances in Europe as well have been good. 

    "But we've got to believe in ourselves. Motherwell gave us heart last week [in their narrow defeat by Celtic].

    "It's not a template as such but I think it shows if you believe in your ability and you have a go, sometimes you get the rewards.

    "You'll need a bit of luck, your goalkeeper to be on top form and everything to click into place. We know it's a tough order but we know we can do it."

    Ian Cathro insists there will no "drastic" changes to the way that Hearts play now that he has taken over as head coach.

    The 30-year-old has taken the squad for three training sessions since his appointment was confirmed at the beginning of the week and he has tried to keep the same routines in place.

    He will also not make radical alterations to the team's style of play, since Hearts are "in a good place".

    "We've got to try to be as efficient as we possibly can," he said of the short time to prepare to face Rangers on Saturday.

    "There's no point in making any real changes or anything massively drastic, that's not what the situation is in this case."

  7. Touchline ban for Motherwell's McGhee

    Motherwell manager Mark McGhee will serve an immediate two-match touchline suspension after admitting use of abusing and/or insulting language towards a steward and a match official during the club's 2-0 defeat by Dundee on 5 November.

    At a Scottish FA disciplinary hearing at Hampden this morning, McGhee accepted those charges but charges of adopting aggressive behaviour towards a steward and a match official were removed.

    McGhee, also Scotland assistant coach, was given a three-match suspension, though one of those will only take effect in the event of a further breach of disciplinary rule 203 before the end of this season.
