QUOTE
Kevin Kyle is close to agreeing a two-year deal with Hearts, having undergone a medical at Tynecastle.

The 28-year-old striker is available under freedom of contract after an 18-month spell with Kilmarnock.

Hearts manager Jim Jefferies was the man to bring Kyle, capped 10 times for Scotland, to Rugby Park.

Aberdeen had been keen on the tall target man, who scored 10 goals last season, while Brentford and Charlton had also expressed an interest.

Could be a good signing if JJ can get the sort of form out of him that he showed at the end of his first season, but his form since then really hasn't been good enough.

Celtic have also made a 1.5m bid for Liam Lawrence. Would be funny if McGeady got kept out by him for both Ireland AND Celtic.

Celtic have announced Neil Lennon will be their new manager. Finland coach, Stuart Baxter, will act in an advisory capacity. Lennon will be unveiled at 11am at Celtic Park. So stay away from there, if you're driving.

Dundee for the fifth season in a row are on a massive away trip on Boxing Day. Dumfries, County, Dumfries, Inverness and Dumfries AGAIN this year. DOn't get me wrong, I quite enjoy a a jolly on Boxing Day, but another 4 hour trip is a piss take.

Hamilton away on the Wednesday between Xmas and New Year. Thanks for nothing once again. The SPL is truly hopeless.

Stirling at home. Intriguing stuff. Got them last day of the season as well. No game on ICW weekend is good.

Thanks for nothing? You've had us at home during the Christmas period at least a couple of times over the last few years. We can't buy a win up there. Well we can't buy anything but you get what I mean.

And it's shite for all fans involved. By the same token Kilmarnock are away at Caley the same night. I don't exactly enjoy the drive to Inverness but surely a slight bit of fixture-juggling could have been done.
At least the New Year game is at Dundee Utd again this year.

Seeing as Rangers are up here at least twice next season we will be extremely thankful for the 6 points! tongue.gif

That's a reasonably easy first three games for the Old Firm. That home game for the Gers against Hibernian might be tough, but all the rest look perfectly winnable. Happy with that, for both sides.

Couple of wee tidbits piqued my interest in today's BBC Scottish football gossip column:
QUOTE
Scotland coach Craig Levein will ask his squad if they want to use the controversial Jabulani ball or another made by sponsors Adidas in their European qualifying campaign. (Sunday Mail)

Personally, if the players can get used to it then I say why not? Might give us an advantage against the other teams in the group who haven't used it. It was used in the Scottish Cup semis and final last year with no complaints or whining, so why not give us a chance if this Jabulani is as bad as everyone says?

QUOTE
Arsenal centre-back Sol Campbell is mulling over two offers - a one-year contract extension with the Gunners and a two-year deal with Celtic.

The Gunners will also attempt to sign Rangers defender Madjid Bougherra once Algeria exit the World Cup finals. (Sunday Express)

As a Rangers fan, I would take a few quid for Bougherra. He's good but complacent, and thinks he's better than the SPL - which is fine, he probably is, but it shows and he can occasionally get caught when attempting to be too adventurous. In the league we're in, the financial state we're in and just generally in the long run, Webster and Wilson might be a better pairing for us next season, with Weir and *gulp* Broadfoot as backup. As for Campbell, I was under the impression Arsenal were releasing him anyway, and if they do plan to bring Boughy in then Sol probably should go to Celtic. I just hope he doesn't!

QUOTE
Rangers owner Sir David Murray rejected Andrew Ellis's takeover bid because the English businessman had enough money to buy the club but not enough to transform it. (Sunday Times)

Wouldn't surprise me at all. The entire Ellis saga had me worried - the club isn't going to be sold any time soon but at least we will have a bit of stability back, with no vital players having left and us apparently having some limited money to spend. Could be alright.
