Six weeks have passed since Pedro Caixinha departed Rangers but now the Ibrox board look set to finally make their move.

According to the papers, the Light Blues will officially approach Aberdeen in a bid to lure Derek McInnes and Tony Docherty and are willing to shell out close to £1m to make the move for the duo happen.

The Dons board look to be holding firm, however, as it is claimed Aberdeen will only sanction talks if Rangers pay the stipulated £800,000 compensation for McInnes up front.

It would be returned to them if negotiations break down further down the line.

Across Glasgow, Celtic are preparing for their final Champions League group stage tie against Anderlecht as the Hoops look to secure third spot and European football beyond Christmas.

Callum McGregor has hit back at Motherwell's Andy Rose after the Englisman said the Hoops midfielder "played for it" to win a penalty in the dying moments, insisting "he's not that type of player".

Elsewhere, Dundee United have been dealt a blow after midfielder Willo Flood suffered a dislocated shoulder, while Scotland rugby coach Gregor Townsend has built on an impressive autumn by linking up with Man City boss Pep Guardiola.
