  8. Warburton praises 'patient' Waghorn

    Rangers manager Mark Warburton says forward Martyn Waghorn "has been very patient" after the striker marked his return to the starting line-up with two goals in Friday's 2-1 win at Hamilton.

    "He’s a guy who scored 28 goals last season and had an unfortunate injury which meant he missed some key games towards the end of the season," Warburton told the Rangers website.

    "He played very well, and he trained very well too last week on astro-turf. That came into it as well.

    “It’s a big club Rangers, and you want to bring the quality and strength in depth in, and that means sometimes that you have to miss out. A lot of players are doing that, but when they are called upon, they show a tremendous application."

    BBC Sport Scotland

    Hearts owner and chairwoman Ann Budge addressed around 400 shareholders at the club's annual general meeting this morning and announced plans for a debenture scheme to help fund the £12m redevelopment of the main stand at Tynecastle.

    And, later, she told BBC Scotland: "I've had a number of supporters contact me already and say, 'can I have a lifetime membership?'

    "I don't want it to become a stand purely for the corporates and people who can spend hundreds of pounds to come to football.

    "We've got to offer something for a full range of supporters and that's really what we're trying to do."

  11. Killie wait for answers on loan players

    Clive Lindsay

    BBC Scotland Sport

    Kilmarnock manager Lee Clark admits his January transfer strategy is dependent on other clubs' plans for some of his own players.

    The Scottish Premiership outfit have five players who could potentially return to their parent clubs at the end of their loan spells.

    "We are not in total control of their destiny," said Clark. "Even if we want them to stay, it is whether their parent club wants them to stay and whether they want to stay.

    "But continuity is a big thing. The lads have grown into playing for the club and all have made a contribution."

    Clark said he has "one or two" signing targets and that his plans have not been altered by injuries to central defenders Scott Boyd and Miles Addison as he expects both to be fit for the Scottish Cup tie against Hamilton Academical in January.

    Hearts director of football Craig Levein has announced that defender Callum Paterson will not be sold in the January transfer window unless a "seven-figure sum" is on the table.

    Scotland cap Paterson, 22, is out of contract at the end of the season and the club would receive a development fee of around £450,000 if he left at the end of his current deal.

    Levein also told shareholders at the club's annual meeting that new head coach Ian Cathro would have funds available to bring in new players during the upcoming transfer window but said the ultimate aim was to provide players from the academy into the first team.

    Hearts are to launch a new debenture system in the New Year to try and bridge a £3m funding gap for the redevelopment of the main stand at Tynecastle.

    Club owner Ann Budge made the announcement at the club's annual general meeting, where around 400 shareholders were in attendance. Budge believes capitalising on the increased ground capacity of more than 20,000 and ongoing fundraising would also help with the total costs of £12m.

    Commitments from fans group the Foundation of Hearts and club benefactors of £3m each will also help with the total cost of the redevelopment. Budge told shareholders £2.5m has already been spent in the preparation of the new stand.

    Budge said there are no plans of any kind to go into debt to fund the renovation.
