RANGERS' outgoing chairman Dave King has insisted that Alfredo Morelos will not be sold in the January transfer window, Celtic's Europa League chances against Rennes have been given a boost as they look to top their group and Derek Milne says that hiring Derek McInnes was the best decision he ever made as Aberdeen chairman.

King rules out Morelos sale

Dave King, who announced yesterday that he will step down as Rangers chairman in the new year, has insisted that star striker Alfredo Morelos will not be sold when the transfer window reopens in January. "I would say to you that I can’t imagine a circumstance where we will sell Alfredo," King said. "I’ve said to the manager, if you get £25m (offered) for him, £30m, I wouldn’t sell him. If they offered £40m and the manager came to me, I’d be saying my instinct would be to keep him."

Rennes to prioritise domestic football

Celtic's Europa League opponents Rennes are likely to field a weakened team at Parkhead tomorrow night as the Ligue 1 side shift their focus to domestic football, according to French newspaper L'Equipe's Rennes correspondant. Johan Rigaud said: “Rennes will try to win the game against Celtic of course, but they can’t qualify now and the most important match of the week for them now will be on Sunday against Saint-Etienne in the league.”

King: I'll stay on for Sports Direct battle

Rangers chairman Dave King has inisted that he will remain at the Ibrox club to see out Rangers' ongoing court battle with Sports Direct. He said: "Sports Direct remains a source of huge frustration because it’s been the one, big failure. I’ll certainly be sticking around as director of Rangers Retail Ltd because I want to see a conclusion to this."

Hiring McInnes was the best decision I made, says Milne

Aberdeen chairman Stewart Milne, who will step down from his role following the club's AGM at the start of next month, says that hiring Derek McInnes was the best decision he ever made during his 22 years as chair of the Pittodrie club. Milne told the Scottish Sun: "Without a doubt hiring Derek is my best decision. I will genuinely feel that I’ve handed over the club in a better position than when I took over. Without Derek, I don’t know if I’d have been in that position."

Kuyt insists Feyenoord will be out for revenge

Former Liverpool and Feyenoord forward Dirk Kuyt has warned Rangers that they will be up against a different side to the one they beat 1-0 at Ibrox when they travel to the Netherlands tomorrow night. “There might be a bit of revenge,” he said. “I saw the game and, to be honest, Rangers deserved to win that game. In Rotterdam, it will be a different game."

Europa League success is all down to Lennon, says McGregor

Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor says that manager Neil Lennon deserves the lion;s share of credit for the club's impressive European results this season. He said: “He could be [bolder than Rodgers]. You see with results. We went to Lazio and I think people hoped rather than had any expectation but when you deliver a result like that it changes everyone’s mindset."

Shiels eyes Falkirk vacancy

Former Kilmarnock manager Kenny Shiels has thrown his hat into the ring for the vacant manager's job at League One side Falkirk. He told the Daily Record: "Falkirk is a very good club. They're in a position they deserve to be well above, I see them as a Premiership club. Who knows what might lie ahead, I still have a lot of respect for that club."
