CELTIC and Rangers are both keeping monitoring Queens Park Rangers striker Bright Osayi-Samuel.

The 22-year-old frontman has only nine months to run on his Loftus Road contract and his place has been put under threat by the £2million arrival of Lyndon Dykes from Livingston.

Former Ibrox boss Mark Warburton accepted a £5million bid from Belgian outfit Club Brugges in the summer, but the anticipated move fell through.

Now Osayi-Samuel has attracted the interest of the Glasgow rivals, according to a report in Football Insider.

The Hoops are said to be working on a deal to bring Osayi-Samuel to Parkhead, but there is also interest being shown across Glasgow from Steven Gerrard’s side.

Both clubs know they could land the player on the cheap in the January transfer window if he remains with the London men beyond the October 5 deadline.

However, the Scots giants are likely to face competition from Premier League sides Leicester City, Fulham and Brighton.

Osayi-Samuel joined QPR in 2017 from Blackpool and scored eight goals from 82 league appearances.
