Rangers today have been dealt another crippling blow for the new season as it has just been confirmed that their young striker Kane Hemmings will be out of action until next season as the player has just suffered his third series knee injury in the past two seasons. This affects Rangers plans for the new season and with a limited budget they may find the striker very difficult to replace during the closed season which is news that manager Ally McCoist could have done without following the clubs financial situation.

In other news James McFadden might be on his way to his boyhood club Celtic in a three year deal after the midfielder was released by Everton at the end of the season. The former Motherwell player is believed to be in discussions with the Scottish club in a deal which would see the twenty nine year old realise his dream of playing for the Scottish giants.

Celtic Manager Neil Lennon today again called for Glasgow Rangers to be stripped of every single football title they have won over the past decade as he believes the club are guilty of arranging illegal contracts for players during this period. This would be a huge blow for Rangers who are currently struggling for survival in the Scottish premier league as it would mean they would be stripped of five premier league titles as well as four Scottish cups which they have won during this period. Lennon feel that this should be done to keep the integrity of the league after Rangers went into administration at the back end of last season due to many dodgey financial deals over the past few years.

The manager of Mothwell Stuart McCall has stated his intentions to attempt to bring in defender Simon Ramsden this summer if the clubs financial situation allows for it. McCall has long been an admirer of the player who has really impressed during his trial period and now the manager is in talks with the board to bring the player to the club for the start of next season.

Glasgow Rangers today had another enquiry for the purchase of the club from leading business man Craig Mather as he is looking to invest and take the club back to their position at the top of Scotlands top flight. Mathers is believed to be in discussions with the administraors in the hope they can arrange a deal which could secure the long term future of the club which will be joy to the ears of Rangers fans who have been hanging in limbo ever since the clubs downfall earlier in the year which saw them stripped of many points which ultimately cost them the title. Sources inside the club have stated that the move looks promising and the administrators are now just viewing the business plan to see if it can be implemented into the scheme to save the club.

Rangers Manager Ally McCoist could find himself in hot water today after the former Scottish international made several comments regarding the club being handed a twelve month transfer embargo by the Scottish FA which greatly hampers his plans to bring in new additions to the squad. This action could indeed land the club in more financial difficulty as they are more than likely to be fined by the FA as well as the prospect of having their manager sidelined for up to six games if he indeed is found guilty of making these comments in front of a footballing tribual.

Hibernian star Isaiah Osbourne has emerged as a target of English club Blackpool after the tangerines made enquiries to the availablility of the player as they look to strengthen their side for the new season. The twenty four year old is seen as a perfect addition to the squad after enjoying arguably his best ever season last time round which has caused many clubs to view him as a possible target. The fact the Hibs are not currently in the best financial position may give Blackpool a great opening to sign the player as the club would find it extremely difficult to turn down a good enough offer for their prized asset.

Two players who are on the top of Celtic manager Neil Lennons hit list this summer are Sebastian Boenisch and Aiden White as both players have long been admired by the manager and now talks are underway to bring both of the players to the club this closed season. Lennon is looking to reinforce his squad for the new season as the club has hopes of competing for the champions league title due to the demise of Rangers and these two players are thought to be on the top of the managers list for next season. The club has confirmed that talsk are underway but are clear to note that no deals are in place and it may be some time before the players are tied up.

In other news Celtic manager Neil Lennon has again confirmed he does not want troublesome striker Victor Wanyama to leave the club this season after speculation that the out of favour player has reached the end of his time at the club. The highly rated twenty one year old has himself touted his intentions to leave the club this summer after having a strange season last year which saw him drop down the pecking order in the squad. This news has once again stirred up interest from many of the English premier leagues top clubs with teams such as West Ham, Newcastle, Queens Park Rangers, Stoke City and Liverpool all said to be highly interested in the midfielder.

Kilmarnock today acquired one of their top targets for next season by bringing in defender Jeroen Tesselaar from St Mirren on a free transfer which saw the player arrive at Rugby Park to the joy of Killies fans. The player is seen as the perfect addition to the squad as the club now look to challenge for major
honours after the downfall of Rangers last season.
