Here’s what’s making the back pages of this morning’s newspapers in Scotland ...

• Hibs will continue to monitor French goalkeeper Antoine Gounet after the 26-year-old played in yesterday’s 2-0 win over Stirling Albion as a trialist. “He didn’t have an awful lot to do, to be honest,” said Hibs manager Alan Stubbs. “We’re going to monitor him and see how he does. He’s only been with us a few days” (various).

• Rangers striker Kenny Miller says he would be open to a Scotland return should the chance arise now that he is back in the country (Daily Express).

• Anthony Stokes is a doubt for Celtic’s Champions League tie with KR Reykjavik tomorrow night due to a hamstring complaint (Sun).

• St Johnstone forward Michael O’Halloran says the Perth club still face a massive task in overcoming Luzern in the Europa League despite a 1-1 first-leg draw in Switzerland (various).

• Dundee United boss Jackie McNamara reckons the arrival of Mario Bilate will lift the other strikers at the club (various).

• Winger Zeli Ismael has revealed that his proposed move to Aberdeen “didn’t feel right”, with the winger instead opting to join Notts County. “Aberdeen was not the right move for me to make,” he said. “It was a little far, but it wasn’t really about that. It just didn’t feel right” (Sun).
