Football Talk: Hampden future in doubt, clubs eye McGree

Your daily round-up of what's happening across Scotland and beyond.

An experimental Scotland team lost 1-0 to the Netherlands at Pittodrie on Thursday but the change fans might need to adapt to is the national side playing away from Hampden.

Scottish FA chief executive Stewart Regan has given the strongest hint yet that the contract at the national stadium will not be renewed in 2020. 

A decision will be taken next year that could lead to games being played at Celtic Park, Ibrox and Murrayfield.

Someone is going to have to come up with names to replace the Hampden Roar.

Wherever Scotland play, Malky Mackay won't be in the dugout. 

Regan insisted the controversial coach will be returning to his day job as performance director after his one match in charge, though he appears to have told everyone else before Mackay.

With the friendly done and dusted, all eyes return to the club game. It may only be November but there's signing talk in the air already.

Celtic and Rangers are both said to be running the rule over Australian youngster Riley McGree, while Kilmarnock have an ex-Premier League midfielder in training who they could snap up as a free agent.

And Adidas have unveiled the official match ball for next year's World Cup. 

That means it's only six months until international goalkeepers start complaining about how it moves too much in the air, handing the advantage to people who can hit a free kick well... like Olivier Ntcham.
