Ex-Gers star reveals “complicated injury”

Former Rangers forward Alfredo Morelos says his final season at Ibrox was hampered by “a very complicated injury” (Record). Morelos became the Light Blues record scorer on the continent despite his stint under Michael Beale seeing him take on more of an understudy role

The 27-year-old has since signed with Santos, and in his first press conference for the Brazilian side he said: “Obviously, there wasn’t a lot of game time at Rangers last season due to a very complicated injury, but I accepted things as they were. It was still a season of scoring twelve goals, obviously I didn’t play most of the main matches. But it was a very nice feeling to play in Europe, in the Europa League and the Champions League”

Dundee boss makes bold international claim

Having four players away on international duty is the kind of club Dundee want to be, says manager Tony Docherty (Courier). Four players from Dundee have been away with their respective nations with Lyall Cameron and Josh Mulligan both starting for Scotland Under 21s and this has inspired Docherty to hope this is only just the start of international journeys for his players.

“It’s great to have players away on international duty. That’s the kind of club we want to be. Seeing Lyall Cameron and Josh Mulligan in the U21s can inspire the rest of our young players to aim for that too. We want to build on that and hopefully in future international break we’ll have players away representing their countries.”

Scotland starlet signs new Premier League deal

Scotland Under-21 defender Ibane Bowat is delighted to have signed a new deal at Fulham (Herald).

The defender has said he was delighted to sign the new deal just a couple of months after a nightmare mauling in the Netherlands. The 20-year-old is already highly thought of at Craven cottage and he has been rewarded with a new two-year contract before being immediately sent on loan to the Austrian Bundesliga side TSV Hartberg.

Speaking about the news, Bowat said: “I’ve just signed a new two year deal with an option for a third. Being part of a Premier League team is fantastic for me and Fulham have always treated me very well. It’s a family club. My aim is to have a good season in Austria, get as many minutes as possible and improve and then I will see where I am this time next year. I just need to keep my head down and focus on my football.”
