Mark Hateley is primed for a remarkable Rangers comeback in the Old Firm derby with Celtic on Sunday.

The 35-year-old striker will have talks with the Glasgow club today after a pounds 400,000 transfer was set up last night with Queen's Park Rangers just a year after he moved to London.

Hateley is expected to help out his old club who have been struck by an injury crisis as they chase their ninth successive league championship. He was only a substitute for QPR in midweek but he could start against Celtic at Parkhead on Sunday.

Chris Waddle walked out of Bradford City with the intention of joining Nottingham Forest yesterday - and straight into a row between the two clubs.

The veteran winger hopes to sign for Forest today as a player in time to make his debut against Liverpool tomorrow, but Bradford are seething about the approach. Waddle mistakenly thought he had an escape clause in his contract, but Bradford are demanding a fee for him - or the striker Jason Lee - as compensation.

The angry First Division club are also considering reporting Forest to the Premier League for an illegal approach to Waddle, who is under contract for the rest of the season.

Waddle announced his departure before training yesterday morning, but was ordered not to travel to Nottingham until a fee was arranged.

One player happy to be at Bradford City is the Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper, Aidan Davison, who is moving to the Valley Parade club on a free transfer. He stands by to make his debut at Reading tomorrow in place of the suspended Jonathan Gould.
