Allan Johnston's men are still looking for their first win with nearly a quarter of the campaign gone and Barr admits they need to sharpen up their act quickly.

He told STV: "Even before the Celtic game, we have been losing by one or two goals and it is frustrating because we've actually been playing not so bad football.

"We need to take it step by step but we want to give something back to the fans, we haven't given them much to cheer about so far. We've got some good players and we need to start showing that.

"There's some good young players in the squad and we are aiming to get a settled starting XI and get that first win.

"We just want to give them something to cheer about on the park. We need to get results on the park and bring fans in."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
