Barry Ferguson suggests Angus Gunn as Joe Hart replacement

Joe Hart is set to retire from professional football at the end of the season. Celtic will need to replace him - and Barry Ferguson thinks that Angus Gunn could be an excellent pick.

Speaking on the Go Radio football show, Ferguson said: "It’s a good shout. He’s a good goalkeeper and he’s playing at a good level down there. But it will all depend if they do get into the playoffs and get into the Premier League because there’s no way it’s going to cross his mind to leave Norwich. But if they don’t get promoted then I think it could be one that Celtic would certainly look at because he’s a very good goalkeeper."

Former Ranger Lewis Macleod joins academy coaching team

Lewis Macleod's playing career came to a premature end in 2021, following a string of knee surgeries - however, he has returned to Rangers as an academy coach.

In an interview featured on Rangers' official club website, Macleod said: "It feels really good to be back. You obviously need to change your mindset from being a player to a coach but from the moment I came back through the door everyone has welcomed me. I’m really enjoying this side of football. The standards are high around the place and the facilities are great.

"I wasn’t expecting to retire as early as I did but I was always interested in coaching. To retire because of injury at 29 is obviously difficult but on the other side it is good to get into coaching so quickly. I’m starting from scratch as I’m just beginning as a coach but I’m learning new things and that’s the good thing about being at Rangers."
