Waves Radio Sportsdesk - Every week day

Friday 18th January

 

FOOTBALL

Aberdeen have re-signed Greg Stewart on loan from Birmingham.  The 28 year old spent last season at Pittodrie but has flourished in the first half of the current campaign at Kilmarnock, scoring eight goals in 16 appearances.  Stewart's arrival will increase the Dons' attacking options.  Yesterday, the Reds swooped to bring back Max Lowe from Derby until the end of the season. 

Rangers begin their attempt to win the Scottish Cup for the first time in 10 years this evening. They're in action for the first time since their winter break at League Two Cowdenbeath in the opening tie of the fourth round.  Aberdeen entertain Stenhousemuir on Saturday.

Second top meets second bottom in League 2.  Peterhead take on Berwick Rangers looking to keep pace with leaders Edinburgh City.  Ross Willox will be included in the squad for the first time after being recalled from his loan at non-league East Stirling. 

The top two in the Highland League have long journeys.  Fraserburgh visit Wick while table-toppers Cove go to Fort William. 

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he doesn't expect Scott McTominay to leave on loan this month. The Scotland international has started just three Premier League games this season and has been linked with a move to Celtic.  But Solskjaer wants to keep McTominay as cover for the squad.

GOLF

Richie Ramsay has slipped back to two under par at the Abu Dhabi Championship in the Middle East.  The Aberdonian had started day three on four under.  Irishman Shane Lowry continues to lead on 17 under.

RUGBY

Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend has named seven uncapped players in his 39-man squad for the Six Nations. Injuries to Fraser Brown and George Turner mean a trio of new hookers, with David Cherry, Jake Kerr and Grant Stewart coming into the national setup. The other uncapped players are back-row Gary Graham, prop D’Arcy Rae and centres Sam Johnson and Chris Dean.

TENNIS

Rafael Nadal is through to the fourth round of the Australian Open tennis.  He eased to a straight sets win over Alex de Minaur 6-1, 6-2, 6-4.  Earlier, Roger Federer progressed after beating Taylor Fritz in straight sets.  Unseeded Czech Tomas Berdych is also through, as he continues to rediscover his form.  Maria Sharapova has knocked defending champion Caroline Wozniacki out.  The Russian progressed to the fourth round with a 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 win.

Andy Murray has withdrawn from next month's Marseille Open tennis, saying he had no choice.  The former world number one is weighing up whether to have another hip operation or to take some time out before making a farewell appearance at Wimbledon in July.

CRICKET

Shane Burger has been appointed as the new head coach of Scotland's cricket team. The South African replaces Grant Bradburn - who left the role to become an assistant with Pakistan.

MOTORSPORT

Toro Rosso have signed British born driver Alexander Albon to compete their line-up for 2019. It means there will be four drivers of British origin on the grid next year. Albon was born in London but races under a Thai flag.  He replaces New Zealander Brendon Hartley at the team.
