Celtic play on Sunday and have Aberdeen at home.

Here is a look at the latest news regarding both Glasgow clubs today...

Defender coy on future

Nikola Katic has admitted he is unsure whether he has a future with Rangers.

The defender was loaned out to Hadjuk Split last term.

He has told Sportske novosti:

“I have a contract, I played some matches during the preparations, some I didn’t. There are a lot of us, there is strong competition, but as everywhere, the struggle is day by day.

“I think I have the quality to play for Rangers, but of course it all depends on the coach, we’ll see. That’s all I can say, I can’t say whether I’ll stay at Rangers or not, whether I’ll sign a new contract or not.”

Midfielder wants to stay

Midfielder Charlie McCann wants to stay at Ibrox and fight for his place.

The youngster is not looking to go out on loan at this moment in time.

He has said, as per Rangers Review:

“There’s always an option of that (loan) but I think, at the minute, I’m looking at staying, establishing myself and getting some minutes and trying to push for a spot in the team or at least involvement in the team in the games coming up this season.”

Celtic continue to watch player

Celtic are reportedly still keeping tabs on Maccabi Haifi midfielder Mohammad Abu Fani.

The Hoops are monitoring the progress of the Isreal international.

As per Sport 1 (via Daily Record), his club will sell him for a ‘suitable offer’.

New signing a doubt

New signing Moritz Jenz is apparently a doubt for this weekend’s game against Aberdeen.

The defender, who is on loan from FC Lorient in France, may have to wait to make his debut.

According to VideoCelts, he has picked up a knock in training.
