Nikica Jelavic: Left Rangers to join Everton in 2012

Rapid have accepted a payment of 820,000 euros (£717,000), less than the 1.18m euros (£1.03m) they were owed by Rangers, according to the Scottish club's failed CVA in the summer.

Rangers chief executive Charles Green had agreed to pay all football debts from the liquidated oldco to clubs as part of the deal to have the club's membership of the Scottish FA transferred to the newco in July 2012.

A Rapid spokesperson told STV: "We received the money from the 'new' Rangers yesterday (Tuesday) and the matter with them is closed.

"We have assured them we will not raise any dispute with FIFA which could have potentially blocked their participation in future European competitions.

"We are still trying to recover the full amount from the 'old' Rangers, but we understand this may take many months."

Striker Jelavic, who now plays for Everton, joined Rangers from Rapid in the summer of 2010.

GAIS, Orebro and Palermo say that they have received negotiated amounts from Rangers over fees due for the transfers of Mervan Celik, Alejandro Bedoya and Dorin Goian respectively.

St Etienne reportedly declined to comment on whether they have been paid for money due for the sale of Carlos Bocanegra to Rangers in the summer of 2011.

S

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.

I

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!
