Burley joins Dundee as Celtic lose Lambert for Munich trip
Saturday 13 September 2003
Dundee have confirmed the signing of the midfielder Craig Burley on a two-year contract. The former Scotland international, who was released by Derby County at the end of last season, will be named in the squad which hosts his former side, Celtic, today.
"He has 46 caps for Scotland and played for a whole host of clubs at the top level so I'm sure he'll go on to be a great asset to this club," the Dundee manager, Jim Duffy, said.
Duffy also revealed that the former Italy international Fabrizio Ravanelli is considering a move to Dens Park after a meeting took place between the pair on Thursday evening.
The Celtic captain, Paul Lambert, is likely to miss the Champions' League opener against Bayern Munich in the Olympic Stadium next week and will definitely miss today's match against Dundee after his ankle injury flared up again during Scotland's midweek defeat against Germany.
The Celtic manager, Martin O'Neill, could bolster his midfield with the signing of the former Atletico Madrid star Dani, who is training with the club.O'Neill is already without the injured Chris Sutton, Johan Mjallby, Joos Valgaeren, Steve Guppy and Ulrik Laursen.
The Danish winger Peter Lovenkrands is available for selection for Rangers' home game against Dunfermline today after recovering from a knee injury. Craig Moore (hamstring) and Ronald de Boer (knee) are both ruled out, but Egil Ostenstad is included in the squad for the first time since joining Rangers.
Dunfermline are without the injured trio Scott Thomson (ankle), Derek Young and Noel Hunt (both knee). All three, however, are back on the road to recovery and should return to action in the coming weeks.
