Scottish Football Transfer News: Celtic star tipped to be used in transfer for ‘£ 38m’ defender, Scott Brown set for Premier League invite, Triple Aberdeen blow, Rangers without ace for Euro clash

It is the first-leg of the tie as the Premiership champions aim to reach a stage no Scottish side has managed since Rangers themselves got there back in 2008 on their run to the UEFA Cup final.

A packed and atmospheric Ibrox is expected and Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s men have shown their ability to raise their game on the European stage. They did so in the previous tie, deservedly defeating Borussia Dortmund across two legs.

Meanwhile, on the domestic front Dundee took a huge blow in their pursuit of safety, going down 1-0 at home to St Mirren. Conor Ronan scored a late headed winner for the Buddies which keeps the Dens Park side bottom of the Premiership, one point adrift of St Johnstone.

For St Mirren, the three points saw them remain ninth but close the gap to the top six. Now just one point separates six teams in the middle of the Premiership. Only three games remain before the split with the league taking a break this weekend for the Scottish Cup quarter-finals.

It isn’t just a place in the top six on offer, all teams will be hoping to claim fourth place for a European spot with fifth also a potential avenue into Europe depending on who wins the Scottish Cup.
