Celtic and Rangers news: Brendan Rodgers right over Moussa Dembele, Nacho Novo very lucky

I had it in 1983 before I joined Arsenal from Celtic. I didn’t want to leave the Hoops, and at the turn of the year the gaffer Billy McNeill was trying to get me on a deal similar to other first-team players. But I was summoned to a meeting at the then owner Desmond White’s office in Glasgow and was told that it was time for me to move on and they would be selling me at the end of the season. Players didn’t have the power then that they…

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes: We have NO money to spend to catch Celtic

McInnes believes Brendan Rodgers’ side would be disappointed if they failed to make history with a second successive treble, such is the gulf between the Hoops and the rest of the pack. But that won’t stop the Dons manager trying to guide his team to their second Scottish Cup Final in a row and pushing table-topping Celtic as hard as possible between now and May. Yet contrary to the public view that the Dons – backed by property tycoon Stewart Milne and multi-millionaire major shareholder Dave Cormack – have funds…

Arsonist falcons suggest birds discovered fire before humans did

Auscape International Pty Ltd/Alamy Stock Photo By Andy Coghlan Some birds of prey have learned to control fire, a skill previously thought to be unique to humans.

Diverse superhero stories are drowned out by the status quo

Get the Think newsletter. SUBSCRIBE Superheroes are not good at representing diversity. The genre has for decades been dominated by mostly to white male heroes — and, in fact, is actually tilted specifically towards rich white male superheroes. So while some show runners and producers have tried to move towards greater diversity recently, the sheer ubiquity of these narratives in our pop culture landscape means that even the best exceptions are swamped by a tidal wave of status quo white men saving the world. When superheroes dominate film and television…

Among Afghanistan’s top attractions is Band-e-Amir, the country’s first national park, created in 2009. Home to six stunning turquoise lakes nestled within the dramatic barren landscape of the Hindu Kush mountain range, it is also leading the way on conservation…
