Rangers and Celtic are in competition with Newcastle United for a Championship player, with Middlesbrough potentially considering selling due to financial temptation.

Rangers and Celtic, along with Newcastle United, are reportedly vying for the signature of a promising Middlesbrough player. Goalkeeper Tom Glover, who joined Middlesbrough from Melbourne City in 2023, has attracted attention from these clubs, as well as Danish side FC Copenhagen. Glover has already made 20 appearances across various competitions and is on track to potentially become Australia’s number one goalkeeper.

Middlesbrough may consider selling Glover at the end of the season, as his contract runs until 2026. Brendan Rodgers is purportedly keen on him, especially with Joe Hart retiring soon, while Rangers are seeking competition for their current goalkeeper, Jack Butland. Similarly, Newcastle, under Eddie Howe’s management, are also in the market for a goalkeeper.

In another development, Rangers’ manager, Philippe Clement, has refuted claims from Dundee that Wednesday’s match postponement was solely due to weather conditions.

This postponement marks the second time the Premiership fixture between the two teams has been called off. The pitch at Dens Park underwent two inspections before being declared waterlogged.

Clement expressed frustration at the situation, suggesting that better decision-making or alternative venue arrangements could have prevented the postponement.

He acknowledged the scheduling challenges, particularly with the significance of matches during the split phase of the season, and recognized the concerns raised by other teams regarding the potential sporting injustice resulting from such postponements.
