Gers kids see move to Blades chopped
MORTEN RASMUSSEN has left Celtic for Turkish club Sivasspor on loan until the end of the year.
The Danish striker has joined the club in time for the start of the Turkish season.
Rasmussen was signed by Tony Mowbray in January 2010 and scored three goals in 13 appearances before the end of that season.
But the 26-year-old fell out of favour before the start of last season and was loaned to German side Mainz and Danish outfit Aalborg without playing another
game. RANGERS duo Kyle Hutton and John Fleck won’t be joining Sheffield United after the English club admitted defeat in their attempts to recruit the players on loan.
The Gers pair, both 20, thought they had sealed season-long moves to Bramall Lane late on transfer deadline day.
But the youngsters were not registered in time with the English Football League and the Blades now concede that they will be unable to sign the Ibrox twosome.
Sheffield United director Scott McCabe said: “It’s been a very frustrating time for all concerned.
“Everyone at the club has worked very hard to try to make these transfers happen, but we have had to eventually admit defeat.
“ We had expected the transfers to go through and were surprised when we were told they had not been completed in time.
“The manager will now move on to other targets. It is the case transfers can break down for many reasons.”
Meanwhile, Lee Wallace has set his sights on a return to action in the Old Firm clash on September 18.
The full-back has been sidelined for the last couple of weeks with a hamstring injury.
Saturday’s trip to Dundee United may come too soon, but Wallace is keen to play a part against the Hoops.
He said: “I’m working hard with the physios and I’m aiming to be back as soon as possible, but I’ve just had to be a bit careful after being out for a long while last season.
“The Celtic game is a huge one and certainly one I’d look to be involved in if I can be.”
