RANGERS fans had some good news on Monday following their dismal 2-0 Old Firm loss at home to Celtic.
Ryan Kent joins from Liverpool on a four-year deal.
NEYMAR has been crying out for a return to Barcelona for months.
But he remains a Paris-Saint Germain player until at least January after a deal between the two clubs could not be reached.
The Brazilian superstar has been calling for reunion with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez at Camp Nou for some time, yet admitted to his teammates and family on Monday that he would remain in the French capital for the foreseeable future.
It was quite a day for the Parisians as the transfer window closed shut.
Not content with having Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani, Angel Di Maria, Julian Draxler and Pablo Sarabia in attacking positions – they added Mauro Icardi to mix after he completed a loan move from Inter Milan.
And that deal is being reported to include an inclusive £64m (70m euros) option to buy next summer.
Meanwhile, they also had a change of goalkeepers, with Keylor Navas moving to PSG on a permanent deal, making him their third arrival between the sticks this summer after Sergio Rico and Marcin Bulka joined.
Yet, the Costa Rican shot-stopper’s signing coincided with Alphonse Areola going the other way to Real Madrid on a season-long loan.
As for English clubs, the biggest transfer on deadline day was Henrikh Mkhitaryan joining Roma for the season from Arsenal.
It represents a major coup for the Gunners, who will not have to pay a penny of his £180,000-a-week wages during his time in Italy, allowing for some more savings and chances for the younger starlets.
